Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1/2 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, chopped
8 bacon strips, chopped
1 can pinto beans, do not drain
1 can butter beans, rinsed and drained, reserving 1/4 cup liquid
1 can kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup ketchup
2 tbsp molasses
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup packed brown sugar

Brown ground beef, onion, and bacon in medium saucepan over high heat.  Stir in the beans and liquid; set aside.

In a medium bowl combine the ketchup, molasses, and mustard; mix in the sugars.  Stir the ketchup mixture into the beef mixture and mix well.  Transfer to the slow cooker or crockpot.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours or until heated through.

Serves 6 to 8.
