This easy recipe also saves money on the family food budget and is a meal you can definitely repeat during the month to save even more time and money.
A quick cooking meal that is easy on the family budget
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 medium onion, diced fine
- 3 cans Bush's Best Baked Beans
- 1 cup catsup
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
Using a large skillet, brown ground beef and onion until there is no pink in the beef. Drain off any grease. Lightly salt and pepper beef as it browns.
Add the rest of the ingredients and cook on low for about 20 minutes.
Serve over rice or plain, topped with shredded cheddar cheese
Save Even more Money!
Did you know you can save even more money by grating your own cheddar cheese? Just buy a block of cheese and grate your own.
This is a great meal to use lower priced ground beef. Brown the beef with the onions (season with salt and pepper) when the beef is browned just drain off most of the grease.
What to Serve with your Baked Beans and Ground Beef Recipe
We like to serve our baked beans and beef poured over a small bowl of rice garnished with some cheddar cheese. You could also serve this on its own with some bread or crackers. A tossed salad goes perfectly as well with this recipe.
What Type of Ground Beef to Use
We use full fat version of beef for better flavor not the extra lean. Just make sure to drain most of the grease before adding the rest of the ingredients.
