Barbecued Beef Stuffing

Servings: 8

Prep Time: 30 min

Cook Time: 30 to 50 min


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


  1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Liberally grease a 2 1/2- to 3-quart casserole dish and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
