Cowboy Beans

Cowboy Beans

When I was a kid, my Uncle Steve would take us camping. This was one of his standard camping foods. Easy to make, insanely tasty, it’s one of those things that tastes better and better the days after it’s made!

2 lbs ground beef
2 cups bar-b-que sauce (I use Sweet Baby Rays)
1 medium diced onion
½ tsp garlic salt
½ tbsp celery seed
2 tsp mustard
½  cup dark molasses
2 - 16 oz can pork n beans
2 - 15 ¼ oz can kidney beans
2 - 15 oz can pinto beans
2 – 15 oz can black beans
2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced (you can use canned, as well)

All you have to do is brown the ground beef and onion together till cooked, then drain. Open the cans of beans, and rinse them all off. Add everything together into a crock pot and stir it all together. Set it to high for an hour or two, then turn to low or simmer. This can simmer all day while you are at work. Left overs will keep in the fridge for a week or two, freezing works fine as well. This is one of those recipes that tastes better a few days after, since the flavors all have a chance to meld!
