Ol Settlers Beans

22 Apr

One of the girls at work was heating these beans up in the break room at work, and it smelled so good. It smelled alot like chili. I asked her what she was eating that night, and she said ol settlers beans. I had never heard of them. She said it was a combo of ground beef/pork, beans, in a sweet sauce. I thought it would be something my family would like, so I asked her for the recipe. We both liked this recipe. My husband said it tasted like baked beans. It is alot like baked beans, but a little heartier with the addition of the meat. I will be making this again.
