Chuck Wagon Beans

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.

ingredients

directions

  • In a Dutch oven or other large, heavy, oven proof pot fry bacon until crisp and set aside.
  • Drain fat.
  • In the same pan, cook ground beef, onion and celery until meat in brown and the onion and celery are tender.
  • Meanwhile, dissolve bouillon cubes in boiling water.
  • Add bouillon to meat mixture with the remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Cover and bake 1 hour and 15 minutes in a 375 degree oven until hot and bubbly.
  • Crumble bacon over beans and serve.
  • 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! <br/><br/>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.

    I made this recipe last weekend. (This is my PAC baby, by the way)! My husband and I loved this! It was so warm and filling! Deeeeelish! I will certainly make this again!
