Barbecue Baked Beans
Servings: 8 Prep 20 mins Cook 40 mins Bake 300°F 3 hrs


  • 1 pound small dried navy or pea beans, picked over and rinsed
  • 4 ounces lean bacon strips
  • 3/4 cup bottled barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup dark molasses
  • 1/4 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon spicy brown mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Make It

1. Combine beans and 7 cups water in large saucepan. Bring to boiling; cook 2 minutes. Remove from heat. Cover and let soak 1 hour.

2. Bring undrained beans slowly to boiling over medium-low heat; this should take about 25 minutes. Simmer until firm-tender, 15 minutes. Drain, reserving 2 cups liquid.

3. Heat oven to 300 degrees F.

4. Cook bacon between pieces of paper toweling in microwave oven on high power to remove some of the fat, 3 to 4 minutes. Reserve.

5. Stir together beans, reserved cooking liquid, barbecue sauce, molasses, sugar, vinegar, mustard and salt in large bowl. Scrape into 2-1/2-quart baking casserole or bean pot. Place bacon on top. Cover.

6. Bake in 300 degrees F oven 3 hours or until beans are tender. Add water if needed to keep beans just covered with water. Serve warm.
