lean ground beef
chopped raw bacon
onion, finely chopped

baked beans with pork
1 (15.25 ounce) can
red kidney beans, with liquid
1 (15 ounce) can
lima beans, partially drained
liquid smoke flavoring
Excellent! Got rave reviews at a potluck as is. The next time, I used chili sauce instead of ketchup, 2 tbsps of dry mustard, and a 1/4 cup each of brown sugar and molassas. That was a sweeter version that the kids liked better.
This was not good and a waste of ingredients! This had way too much liquid smoke flavor and desperately needed brown sugar. Unfortunately will not make again even with altered ingredients - it was that bad!!
Love this recipe! Every time I make these beans I get asked for the recipe and receive many compliments. I love cooking things in the slow cooker because you can put the beans and the slow cooker and forget them until they are ready. Very easy!
I now make this with half ground beef and half ground sausage. Tastes awesome! *********** I have made this for 2 different events/potlucks and each time i got SOOO many compliments. I think these are the best barbecue beans i've eaten. It yields a lot though so if you are making it for the family as a side dish, i would half it.
Only a couple small changes....1TB of salt as listed is too much sodium/used 1 tsp and as other posters noted it needs brown sugar and added 1/3 of a cup. 5 stars with less salt/add brown sugar.
Very good. Well worth the effort to cook the onions ahead of time along with the bacon and beef.
I really liked this recipe. I made it for a BBQ yesterday and everyone loved it. The only changes I made were using 1/2 cup ketchup and 1/2 BBQ sauce (with a little mustard mixed in) instead of all ketchup. And I used 1 can of light and one can of dark kidney beans and omitted the lima beans. I did add some brown sugar as others suggested and it was a hit! People have been asking me for the recipe all day.
