Western Beef and Corn Casserole Recipe

Publisher Photo
I've been extra busy since our baby daughter was born a few months ago. That's why this easy-as-pie main dish is filed at the front of my recipe box! My husband really likes its Western flavors of beef, corn and wheat…especially since we raise the last two ingredients here on our family farm! —Deb Poitz, Fort Morgan, Colorado

MY REVIEW

"I made in a round 1 1/2 qt baking dish and it turned out like a bread bowl, very delicious casserole."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 15, 2013

"Great recipe but I changed out salsa for the tomato sauce and added black beans. I also used a box of corn bread and added a little flour (it was too runny) and added the corn bread to the bottom and sides. This was great the night of and maybe even better the next day!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 2, 2012

"The online recipe is missing part of the sentence that should say "1/2 cup hickory-flavored or regular bbq sauce". Kind of an important phrase to be missing! I cut out the original recipe so have it in print. I have made this many times! I make one and half times the cornbread base and bake it in a 9 X 13 pan. Sometimes I add a can of black beans (drained & rinsed). Use 1 cup of frozen corn instead of canned. This is fantastic!"

"Hickory sauce would be a commercial barbecue sauce flavor. I use KC Masterpiece Hickory in this recipe and it's great."

MY REVIEW

"this looks good but I have a question. what is hickory-flavored sauce? where would I find it in the grocery store? thanks."
