This ridiculously easy crock-pot meal is good both hot and cold. I usually serve it with corn bread.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 453.59 g lean ground beef (fresh, thawed or still frozen) or 453.59 g ground buffalo meat (fresh, thawed or still frozen)
  • 1700.97 g canned pinto beans
  • 354.88 ml frozen chopped onions (or fresh onion, chopped)
  • 354.88 ml barbecue sauce (I use Kraft Original to make it gluten free)

Directions

  1. Put ground beef in the crock pot. I don't brown it, or even thaw it. If it's frozen, it's fine to leave it in one big lump.
  2. Drain & rinse the beans, then pour over beef.
  3. Add the chopped onion and barbeque sauce. Stir the onions, beans and sauce if you'd like.
  4. Cover and cook. I cook it on high 5 - 6 hours if the beef is frozen.
  5. Before serving, take out the beef and break it into bite-sized chunks. Return to the pot & stir.
  6. Serve hot or cold.
