Best Ever Baked Beans
This recipe has been a family favorite for almost 30 yrs. It is a pleasant change from basic baked beans and is great accompaniment for our Texas BBQ's.
2 lb. ground beef
2 15 oz. cans Van Camps baked beans (no substitutes)
1 med. onion chopped
1/2 C. brown sugar
1/2 C. dark Karo syrup
(1/2 C. molasses can be substituted for brown sugar and Karo syrup)
1 - 1.5 C. BBQ sauce of choice (I find the cheap, basic Heinz to be the best)
Brown ground beef. Place in crock pot with remaining ingredients. Set crock pot to med. and cook for 4-6 hours or until no longer "soupy".
