Slow Cooker Cowboy Pork and Beans are loaded with ground beef, navy beans, vegetables, and a tomato-based sauce for an easy dinner recipe or a popular potluck side dish!
Place beans (with sauce), Manwich sauce, and brown sugar in the slow cooker.
Brown ground beef, bell pepper, and onion in a skillet until no longer pink. Drain. Transfer beef mixture to the slow cooker with the pork and beans. Stir to combine.
Cover and cook on HIGH for 30 minutes; then switch to LOW for an additional 1 hour.
Garnish with optional toppings, if desired.
This dish works well as an entrée for an easy dinner, or as a side dish at a potluck.
Jackie suggests cooking the pork and beans on HIGH for the first 30 minutes, and then switching the temperature to LOW for another 1 hour. If you're not going to be at home and you cannot switch the temperature after 30 minutes, you can cook your pork and beans on LOW for 2-3 hours or on HIGH for 1 hour.
