Baked Beans with Ground Beef
“Upgrade baked beans from classic side dish to a meaty main meal by adding lean ground beef. The final result, a superfast hearty casserole, is an easy and fast dinner option. Ground turkey or even sausage would work nicely in this dish. Just watch the sodium.”
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 pound lean ground beef
2 (15 ounce) cans no-salt-added navy beans, rinsed
1 cup water
¾ cup ketchup
¼ cup molasses
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ cup chopped fresh chives for garnish
1Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onion and ground beef. Cook, stirring and crumbling beef with a wooden spoon, until the onion has softened and the beef is no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Add beans, water, ketchup, molasses, mustard, garlic powder and salt; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring, until the mixture is bubbling and slightly thickened, 5 to 8 minutes. Garnish with chives, if desired.
To make ahead: Refrigerate for up to 2 days. Reheat on the stovetop or in the microwave.
