Man Beans

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I like to call these Man Beans because my hubby and bro both call them "real mans' beans"

Tracy's Man Beans

1/2 pound sliced bacon, diced
1/2 pound ground beef (or leftover pork, brisket etc.)
1 cup chopped onion
1 can (28 ounces) Bush's Beans
1 can (16 ounces) kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 can (15-1/4 ounces) Butter beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup ketchup
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons prepared mustard
2 tablespoons molasses
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon chili powder

In a large skillet, cook bacon, beef (skip the beef step if you are using leftover pork, brisket etc and add the leftover meat to the final mix) and onion until meat is no longer pink and onion is tender; drain.
Transfer to a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish; add all of the beans (leftover meat if you are using it) and mix well. In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients; stir into beef and bean mixture. Cover and bake at 350° for 45 minutes. Uncover; bake 15 minutes longer.. Or smoke it at 225 for a few hours! Enjoy

Thanks for the recipe. Will try it.

Don't worry Andy, they are worth the wait. I am not sure how they stand up next to Dutch's but they sure are mighty fine Man Beans!!!

Hey Jerky...I wouldn't say they are handed down family wise...but I did a cooking article a while back, after the editor of the paper took me to his dad's (95 yrs.old) house to search through the family recipe 'vault' in the attic. I found it there and was given permission to take it by the family...been making them ever since. Only update I made was the Bush's beans (cause they r my favorite) I make these for the local fireman's chicken BBQ (Chicken leg quarters on a cinder pit) and they have been the talk of the town since!
