Maple Bacon & Burger Stew
If you like a warm stew or soup like classic chili you will love this new take that includes bacon (who doesn't love bacon?) and our favorite ingredient - 100% pure Brantview Farms Maple Syrup! Warm up with this easy and flavorful recipe that will have everyone asking for seconds.
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef (or turkey or chicken - whatever you prefer)
1/2 lb bacon, cut in 1" pieces
1 large can whole tomatoes or 3 15 oz. cans of diced tomatoes undrained
1 15 oz. can dark red kidney beans, drained
1 large or 2 medium onions, thickly sliced
1/2 cup pure Brantview Farms Maple Syrup
1/4 tsp garlic powder or chopped garlic cloves to your taste
salt and pepper to your taste
Brown bacon in skillet along with ground meat of choice. Drain and discard excess grease.
Add tomatoes, kidney beans, onion slices, maple syrup and seasonings. Combine all in a slow cooker and cook for 4-6 hours or more until it's hot and bubbly. You can also prepare this meal faster by cooking all ingredients in a large heavy pot until the onions are tender and all ingredients are hot. Enjoy!
