  • 1/4 cup sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

Directions

In a large skillet, brown the ground beef until all the pink is gone, about 10 minutes.

Add the beans to a large pot and cover with 3 quarts cold water. Add the onion, salt pork, sugar, chili powder and salt. Bring the beans to a simmer over medium-high heat. Add the cooked beef and simmer until the beans are tender and the liquid has thickened slightly, about 2 hours. Serve hot as a side dish.
