So Shawn's grandma makes some of the best beans that I have had. I think it is the combo of smoke and vinegar that I like. You can usually find of pot of these at family gatherings or with traditional BBQ flair.....I usually make them in a slow cooker but they can be made on the stove. We also add in 1-2 links of smoked hot sausage that has been browned and sliced and changed the Butter Beans to Black Beans. If you need a good standard bean recipe look no further!
Makes: 8-10 servings
1/2-1 lb of Hamburger, browned and drained
1/2-3/4 lb Bacon, Cut up, browned & drained
1-2 Smoked Hot Sausage Links, browned & sliced (Optional, not in original recipe)
1 C Onion, chopped
2 Cans Pork & Beans
1 Can Dark Kidney Beans
1 Can Black Beans (or Butter Beans which was the original recipe)
1 C Ketchup
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1 T Liquid Smoke
3 T White Vinegar
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Add all ingredients into a crock pot, mix gently and cook on high for about 2-3 hours or on low for 4-6 hours. Until bubbly and hot. Enjoy!
