    RuthlessWr's Note:

    Another of my husband's favorites. I got this recipe out of a cookbook called "Dining with Pioneers". It's apparently a collection of recipes by a group from Tennessee. This one was submitted by someone named Mae Hallum from Memphis.

    1. 1
      In a Dutch oven or other large, heavy, oven proof pot fry bacon until crisp and set aside.
    2. 2
      Drain fat.
    3. 3
      In the same pan, cook ground beef, onion and celery until meat in brown and the onion and celery are tender.
    4. 4
      Meanwhile, dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water.
    5. 5
      Add bouillon to meat mixture with the remaining ingredients and mix well.
    6. 6
      Cover and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven until hot and bubbly.
    7. 7
      Crumble bacon over beans and serve.
    8. 8
      This makes a LOT of beans. I usually halve the recipe.

      I first spotted the recipe in a issue of "Country" magazine in an article on Dutch Oven Cooking. It being posted here makes it a nice resource. Thank you for posting!

      After sauteing the meats, onions, celery, and garlic I ladled everything into a crockpot then added the rest of the ingredients. I drained the beans and cooked on high several hours. The beans were thick and proved to be a hearty meal. They would be excellent campfire fare or after the game food for a cool night.

      Great comfort food! Since it is just the two of us now I made half of the recipe and we still had some left for lunch tomorrow. I used ground round, Bush baked beans, and beef broth that I eyeballed to measure. Served over white bread and enjoyed! Adopted RuthlessWr for Pick A Chef 2012.

      My absolute favourite recipe, especially during cold weather. Cornbread or Garlic Bread makes an excellent addition.
