Baked Beans With an Asian Flair

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

I needed to put together something for dinner, so combined several things, working off one of my already published recipes, and came up with this. The flavors worked well together. However, I actually used Stir Fry Sauce for the terikyaki sauce, and it was great!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F.
  2. In an ovenproof skillet (cast iron works great), brown the ground turkey with the onions, garlic and green pepper until meat is no longer pink and veggies are soft. Drain any grease.
  3. Add remaining ingredients, except for topping, and simmer gently, stirring occasionally for 10-15 minutes.
  4. Combine the topping ingredients and spread over the meat and bean mixture in the skillet.
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until topping is golden brown.

I made this dish as just a baked bean side dish. Omitted the meat & biscuit topping. I used 1/2 the tomato sauce called for. I added 1/2 cup of small diced fresh ginger. It sounds like a lot but I made the beans!! Small dice added texture and lots of fresh ginger flavor. You must try it with fresh ginger! Next time I may drain some of the liquid that the beans come in, as it was saucier than I prefer.

Great combo of flavors. I was lazy and didn't do the topping, but served over instant mashed potatoes instead. Will make this again for a quick meal

I made this last night for a great-tasting comfort meal, quite quickly made and all ingredients on hand. I didn't make the topping (hadn't read down the list thoroughly before starting), I put together the bean and beef mixture, which was rich and moist, and then served it over small shell pasta for a delicious supper, well received by the family! I'll definitely make this again, I think its a versatile dish, would go well with rice or couscous, I would have liked to have had some garlic bread on the side, next time! Thanks for sharing a great recipe :D
