Cowboy BeansCowboy Beans
2 quart jars of canned beans with salt pork or bacon(substitute 2 large cans of store bought baked beans if you donít have home canned.)
1 pound(I admit to using 2 lbs for my crew of 7)ground meat, pork or beef work equally well. We usually use pork.
1 large, sweet onion, chopped
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup black coffee
1 cup ketchup
1/2 cup mustard
Salt/Pepper to taste
Brown ground meat in large pan, once the meat has started to release juices, add the chopped onion and s/p to taste.
Once meat is browned and onions are translucent and soft, drain meat of excess fat if necessary.
Return browned meat mixture to large pan. Add remaining ingredients and heat thoroughly. This dish tastes best when allowed to cool and reheat at dinnertime.
