I’d like to share a recipe from Ladybuggz aka Teresa, a long time blog friend of mine.
If you’d like to share a budget friendly recipe, please email either Jackie or myself.
I call this recipe Beef, Beans & Biscuits or Cowboy Fuel!
Most of us on a small budget have these ingredients in our fridge and pantry….it’s a rib sticking, great meal!
Ingredients needed: Ground Beef, Onion, BBQ Sauce, Brown Sugar, Salt, Refrigerated Biscuit Dough (premade) or make your own… 1/2 cup of Shredded Cheese (your choice/or not). You can also add more veggies to it if you have them..like celery, carrots, & green pepper.
-Use as much Ground Beef as your family usually uses……
-dice 1/2 medium onion or more (to your liking)
-Brown Ground Beef and Onion together…Keep on low
-Add 3/4 cup of your fav. BBQ Sauce to the beef and onion mix & next 3 ingredients
-Add 2 Tbsp of Brown Sugar/ or what ever sugar you have on hand
-Add 1/2 tsp Salt
-Mix in 1- 16oz can of your fav. Baked Beans, bring to a gentle simmer….
Pour meat and bean mixture into a casserole dish big enough for all to fit! (or see end of step 4 for alternative).
-Either Make or use pre packaged Biscuit Dough, place Biscuit’s on top of beef and bean mix, cover with 1/2 shredded cheese and bake according to Biscuit recipe. Or bake biscuits separately and keep meat mix hot on top of stove ( I do this to keep bottom of biscuits from getting soggy).
This will fill your bellies and keep your house warm in more way’s than one!
Thanks Merry and Jackie for considering this recipe for your new site!
You’re welcome, Teresa! I’ll have to give this one a try (and light a candle!)
