  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 package (1.61 ounce) Pioneer Brown Gravy Mix
  • 1 1/4 cups brewed coffee (cooled to room temperature) or water
  • 1 can (15 ounce) pork and beans (undrained)
  • 1 can (15 ounce) red kidney beans, drained
  • 1 can (15 ounce) navy beans, drained
  • 1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons packed brown sugar

  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter or margarine, melted

  • 1 In large 12-inch cast-iron skillet, cook and stir beef and onions until beef is brown and onions are translucent.
