what is cowboy casserole?
Whilst there are a few versions of cowboy casserole out there, cowboy casserole in my family has always been a mixture of beans, onions, pork and mushrooms. In fact we have alternated this recipe using either sausages of beef burgers chopped into small pieces – which we call beef burger bean bake. However the idea is that it’s a mixture of tasty meats in a bean sauce.
