If you want a hearty and fulfilling main dish, look no further than one-pot cowboy beans! We love the simplicity of the cooking instructions: simply cook bacon, cook ground beef and onion, and mix everything together in a Dutch oven! The brown sugar coats the beans and meat for a sweet, surprising glaze. Plus, any recipe that calls for a half pound of bacon is sure to be a winner. You can also top the one-pot cowboy beans with any shredded cheese you might have lying around.
lbs ground beef
oz lima beans (1 can, drained)
oz pork and beans (1 can)
tbsp yellow mustard
cups brown sugar
salt (to taste)
pepper (to taste)
Cook the bacon in a Dutch oven over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.
In the same pan, crumble ground beef and cook for 2 minutes. Mix in onion; continue to sauté until beef is browned and onion is golden. Drain grease.
Combine all the ingredients into the Dutch oven and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for about an hour. Serve while warm.
