Hearty Bean Burger Stew

It’s that time of year when the weather starts turning colder, and we start turning to soups and stews for dinner to warm us to the bone!  Although it still isn’t too chilly here in south Florida, I’m jumping on the bandwagon and whipping up some delicious soups and stews for the season.

This particular recipe has been in my family for three generations!  It has been handed down to me by my mother, who used to eat it growing up as prepared by her mother.  As a child, my mom used to prepare this dish for my family all the time – it’s so easy to make that it’s perfect for a night in which you only have a short time to prepare supper.  It’s a simple and easy dish, but so delicious!  It’s made with budget-friendly ingredients, and with the few tweaks I have made is quite healthy as well.  Enjoy this time-tested recipe for hearty bean burger stew!

  • 1/4 to 1/2 lb. extra lean ground beef (about 1-2 hamburger patties’ worth), broken into small chunks

  • 2 16-oz. cans Pork and Beans
  • 1 14.5-oz. can diced tomatoes (you can use plain or flavored ones)

Bean burger stew ingredients

Dice the onion into medium or small pieces.

Diced onion

Add the ground beef and chopped onion to the frying pan, and cook over medium-low heat for 5 minutes until the ground beef is cooked through and the onion is starting to become translucent.

Ground beef and onion cooking

Open the cans of pork and beans, and discard the fatty piece of “pork” usually floating on the top.  Add the cans of beans and the can of tomatoes to the frying pan – don’t drain either.  Cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes.
