Years ago a friend gave me a recipe for a crock pot dish containing:
Ground Beef, pork sausage, onion, kidney beans, lima beans, black beans, mustard, ketchsup, BBQ sauce, and garlic and ????Put all together and cook for 6 hours. I know I am missing a lot of the other things that go into it.
I cannot find the recipe and would like to make it for the Fourth of July dinner.
Any help, Please
Although I have not made this recipe, it looks very good.
Google allrecipes.com and enter "baked meaty beans" in the search box
If I knew more about my computer I could copy the recipe and post it here. Have a great, safe 4th!
God bless America!
This isn't a crock pot recipe but it sure sounds similar. My aunt gave me this recipe:
Fry 8 slices of bacon. In same pan brown 1 lb. hamburger with a small chopped onion. Drain the juice from the meat.
Mix together in a bowl 1/2 c. catsup, 3/4 c. brown sugar, 1/2 c.sugar, 1 t. salt, 2 t. vinegar, 1 t. mustard.
Drain and mix 1 can each of pork and beans, kidney beans and lima beans. Mix everything together and bake 1 hour at 350 degrees.
This is sounding like a weird take on Brunswick stew in the south or perhaps maybe Booyah in the north. There is no regional American dish that includes black beans so it must be an invented recipe. I can't help you with an exact replication of this dish but suggest you use a Brunswick stew recipe or Booyah, whichever suits your fancy. The BBQ sauce, mustard and ketchup components are ingredients used for a Georgia or Carolina vinegar based Q sauce which is making me think it is a Brunswick stew. Brunswick stew used to be whatever hunted small game meats landed in a pot, corn, limas, tomatoes, sometimes potatoes and beans. The beans were usually fresh. It's more refined now and might include sausage, chicken, beef, etc. rather than squirrel, possum or groundhog. :>) I make a Q sauce with ketchup, mustard, apple cider vinegar, granulated garlic, black pepper and cayenne. Recipes are available on line. They usually use pepper flakes in the Carolinas instead of cayenne but I think this this is where you are trying to go with what is an entree stew. Great idea for the 4th!
Don't know if you have seen Cooks Country Magazine but they have a section in there that people ask others for favorite recipies that they have lost. If you've never seen Cook's Country or its cousin Cook's Illustrated check them out! They also have website that has subscription but it is SO AWESOME that it is worth it (No I don't work for them LOL)
The other thing they have besides recipes is taste tests where they tell you which olive oil, or canned tomato etc. tested out the best and product reviiews like coffee makers and pans. It's not always the expensive one that comes out best and they have saved me lots of time and money on products. My only wish is that they'd start doing more low fat versions of the recipes. Cream sauce is o.k. for kids but I'm growing wider not taller LOL
