Sweet and Savory Beef Bean Medley

This beef and bean dish may not look like much, but it is really good.  Sweet and savory combined, I rank this with comfort food.

Other great things about this meal:  it’s a slow cooker meal and it makes a lot.  I almost always freeze about half.  Then some night when I do not feel like cooking I can simply defrost, warm and enjoy.

So, if you are looking for lots of protein, this dish has it.  If you are looking for a way to eat more legumes, this is a good recipe to start with.  If you are looking for easy, this one is for you.
