Barbecued Pink Beans

  • 1 pound Western Trails pink or pinto beans in 1 quart water
  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 4 onions, peeled & chopped fine
  • 3 green peppers, seeded & chopped fine
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled & crushed
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/2 teaspoon rosemary
  • 1/4 teaspoon oregano
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes

Wash and pick over the beans. Place in a 4 quart kettle with the water. Cover and bring to a boil. Boil gently for 10 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour.

Heat the oil in a skillet and sauté the onions, green peppers, garlic and beef until golden. Add to the beans with all remaining ingredients. Mix well. Cover and simmer for 3 hours or until beans are tender.

Makes 6 servings.

This dish will taste even better if allowed to stand overnight, and then reheat before serving. If you wish to serve it as a side dish, reduce the ground beef to 1/4 or 1/2 pound.
