Cowgirl Beans, Brown Rice, Green Beans

Cowgirl beans again. This dish is wonderfully filling and easy. It feeds a family of five with a second helping for the teenager (i.e. bottomless pit). Here is the recipe from :

Cowgirl Beans

1/2 to 1 pound ground beef
1 onion, finely chopped
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon EACH vinegar and Worcestershire Sauce
8 ounce can tomato sauce
2-15 oz cans of pork'n beans or a 28 oz can baked beans or 3 cups homemade baked beans

First take out your trusty large skillet. Put the hamburger, onion and garlic in it. Fry everything over medium heat until the meat is cooked through. Break the hamburger up into smallish pieces with a fork as you cook it. Drain off the fat if necessary. Add everything else listed above, choosing either the canned beans or the homemade leftover beans. If the mixture seems dry, add a little water for simmering. Cover the skillet and cook the mixture for about 10 minutes over medium-low heat, or until everything is hot, and the flavors have blended some. Spoon the hamburger and beans over cooked brown rice or whole wheat egg noodles.
