Baked Beans with Beef


This is the best baked beans with beef recipe I've ever known. Great with any main dish but especially with barbeque beef, pork, or chicken. The slow cooker does an amazing job with these beans.

  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1 large onion, finely chopped

  • 1 pound peppered bacon

  • 7 (28 ounce) cans baked beans (such as Bush's® Original)

  2. Place bacon in the skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble into small pieces and add to the slow cooker.
