Barbecued Beef Stuffing

Servings: 8

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 30 to 50 min

Ingredients

1 pound; ground beef

1/2 cup; butter or margarine

1 cup; chopped onion

1 cup; minced celery

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 box (12 oz.) of Mrs. Cubbison's Traditional Seasoned Stuffing

1 granny smith apple, peeled, cored, and diced

1/4 cup; chopped fresh parsley

1/4 cup; barbecue sauce

1/2 cup; beef broth

1/2 cup; dry red wine

1 egg, lightly beaten

Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 325°F. Liberally grease a 2 1/2- to 3-quart casserole dish and set aside.
  • Place a large-sized skillet over medium heat. Add the beef, and cook, breaking the meat up with a fork, for about 10 minutes, or until no pink remains. Remove the beef from the skillet and set aside.
  • Melt the butter or margarine in the skillet. Add the onion, celery, and garlic, and sauté for 3 to 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.
  • Add the stuffing mix, apple, parsley, and cooked beef to the skillet, stirring to mix. Gradually add the barbecue sauce, beef broth, wine, and egg, stirring until lightly moistened.
  • Transfer the stuffing to the prepared dish and cover. Bake on middle rack of preheated 325°F oven for 30 to 40 minutes until internal temperature reaches 165°F. If a crisp top is desired, uncover the dish and bake for 10 additional minutes.
