My Version of Truckers Stew

1 lb of ground beef (or venison or sausage) browned
1 lb of bacon cooked in 1/2-1 inch chunks
2-3 onions
2 cans pork and beans
1 can each of kidney and black beans
2 cans of green beans
2 cans of butter beans(or 1 can butter and one lima--we just love butter beans)
1 1/2 Cup Ketchup
3 T vinegar
4 T mustard(yellow or brown)
2 C brown sugar
salt to taste

Brown your meats and the onions, drain. Add beans, if you are using a crock pot, drain the beans before adding, if stove top you will need the liquid. Add rest of ingredients and simmer in crock pot for the whole day(6-8 hours) or approx 3 hours stove top stirring occasionally.

Notes: This is not a health nut soup, you may want to limit it to speacial occasions :-)

Where did you get this idea from?
I've never heard of 'Trucker's Stew'.
Sorry, I have not visited your post yesterday. I did not get in from work until after 11pm. I must be going now, as well to get ready. I'm going to be late today.

It's from the Fix it and Forget it Cookbook--but i took 4 different versions of what are called either "Calico beans" or "truckers Stew" and combined them for my own version and desired quantity and taste.
