I have a personal favorite that I like and it's like a chili, but more.
You'll need the largest dutch oven you can find, cause if you don't eat
all of this, you'll want to take some home. It's even better the second day.
This is not a cheap meal, but it will fill you up and all you need to complete
it is some tortillas and a drink.
There are no set measurements:
3Lbs. Ground Round (good stuff-less grease
2Lbs. dry pinto beans or 2 #10 can pork and beans- your favorite
6 large onions
4 large green bell peppers
1 stalk Celery
2 bottles of your favorite BBQ sauce
1 cup brown sugar
1 jar Honey
Garlic Powder - Salt - Pepper
Hot Chili salsa to taste
This will feed about 15 hungry people quite nicely.
If you use dry beans, you will have to soak them the required period before use.
Take your oven and line it well with foil.
Line the bottom and sides with the bacon strips
In another pan, quick cook the Ground round a little and drain the fat, don't ov
(This is a layer type affair, please follow carefully)
While the ground round is being prepared, have another scout dice the onions,pep
Now we're ready to start!!!!
You have the bacon in place around the pot (with some left over)
Now in layers, place in some onions, peppers, celery
Season with salt,pepper and a little galic powder (just a little)
Now a layer of beans (If you use canned beans,drain them first,but save the liq
Now a layer of Ground Round
Now a Layer of Bacon
Now pour on some honey, BBQ Sauce and Salsa and sprinkle a little brown sugar
(These are thin layers, to fill the whole oven)
Repeat this process of layers until all of the ingredients all used up.
After this has cooked for a while (about 1.5 hour) you can stir it all together.
If you need more liquid, add the bean liquor that you drained off earlier
This should be slow cooked for about 4 hours
Be prepared for a great one pot meal
