Old Settler’s Beans

old settler's beans


 I thought I would bring back one of my favorite bean recipes because it has turned cold this week and this sounds like something I might want to eat for supper soon.  Also, we got to meet our friend Tim for lunch recently and he gave us the recipe. He flew in for a job interview and it was great to catch up!

Make a double batch–there were no leftovers at my house!  Loved by young and old alike, this will be a hit at your next covered dish supper or BBQ.

  1. 1/2 lb. ground beef
  2. 1/2 lb. bacon, cut in small pieces
  3. 1 large onion, diced
  4. 1 can green butter beans (I think it's probably Lima beans, so that is what I used)
  5. 1 can kidney beans
  6. 1 can pork & beans, undrained
  7. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  8. 1/3 cup white sugar
  9. 1/4 cup catsup
  10. 1/2 T. dry mustard
  11. 2 T. molasses
  12. Dash of Worcestershire sauce
  1. In a dutch oven, brown the hamburger, bacon , and onion together. Do not drain.
  2. Add all the beans and stir together.
  3. Mix the remaining ingredients together and then add to the bean/meat mixture. Stir to combine.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.
  1. This can be cooked in a covered dutch oven over hot coals for about an hour and would be great on a camping trip.
