Cowboy Baked Beans Recipe
4 28 0z. cans Bush's Best Baked Beans, Homestyle flavor
1 1/2 lbs. ground sirloin
1 pkg. center cut bacon
1/2 medium red onion, chopped
2 tsp. ground mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. liquid smoke
Your favorite BBQ Sauce, (I prefer KC Masterpiece Original flavor, with a little Gates Original.)
Cut bacon into bite size pieces and fry over medium heat until browned. Remove
bacon onto paper towel to drain and add ground sirloin to same pan and cook
Add chopped onion to cooked sirloin and continue cooking for 2
Add bacon to this mixture.
In Crock Pot, add the cans of beans, Ground Mustard, Brown Sugar and Liquid Smoke and stir.
Add bacon mixture to beans and stir. Add at least 1/2 bottle of BBQ sauce (and approx. 1/4 bottle of Gate's, if using.)
Set Crock Pot on Low and let cook for at least 2 hours....I like mine to cook for at least 4 hours.
