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.

This is another of the recipes that comes from the booklet that came with my first crock pot in the early 1970s.

1/2 to 1 pound ground beef
3/4 cup bacon, cut in small pieces
1 cup chopped onion
2 cans (1-pound, 15-ounce size) pork and beans
1 can (1-pound) kidney beans, drained
1 can (1-pound) butter limas, drained
1 cup ketchup
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
3 tablespoons white vinegar
1 teaspoon salt
Dash of pepper

Brown ground beef in skillet; drain off fat and put beef in CROCK-POT.  Brown bacon and onions; drain off fat.  Add bacon, onions, and remaining ingredients to CROCK-POT.  Stir together well.  Cover and cook on Low 4 to 6 hours.

If using the 2-quart CROCK-POT, reduce this recipe by half.
