Hot BAKED BEANS & BEEF Dinner Casserole

Table of Contents: BEEF & VEGETABLES

1 lb. lean ground beef

1 medium onion, diced

½ small green or bell pepper, diced

1 tsp. salt

½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1 tsp. lemon pepper marinade seasoning

2 (28- oz.) cans pork and beans

¼ to ½ cup catsup

1 tsp. brown sugar

Optional: ½ cup bar-b-que sauce of your choice






Cook the beef in a skillet for 2 minutes; then add the onions, and green pepper and cook until the beef is browned and done.  Drain completely discarding the drippings; then immediately stir in the salt, pepper, and lemon-pepper.


Mix the cooked beef mixture with the beans, catsup, and brown sugar (and bar-b-que sauce, if desired) until blended.


Spray-oil a 9” X 13” baking dish and pour the bean mixture into it.  Bake at 350 degrees for about 45 to 60 minutes.


Hoo-Wee!  I love the addition of the lemon pepper.  I personally like a little tart taste and less sugary taste in my baked beans, so this is just perfect for me.

I feel a little like I was snooping on Facebook.  I had gone to Velma’s page to thank her for the many  “comments” and “likes” on my website recipes.  I saw a posting from her niece asking for “Aunt Velma’s ” recipe for pork and beans with ground beef.   As usual, I was intrigued by a new recipe; so I jumped right in there by also asking Velma for the recipe.  She sent it, and I really liked the addition of the lemon pepper marinade.  Special thanks to Velma for being a sport and sending this requested recipe.   Give it a try, OK?
