February 28, 2012

1 pound dried Navy beans, picked through and soaked overnight

2 tablespoons olive oil

8 oz bacon, chopped

1 small Spanish onion, chopped

2 cloves garlic, sliced

1 1/2 cups ketchup

1/2 cup dark brown sugar

1 tablespoon dry mustard

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper



What barbecue menu is complete without a helping of baked beans? The long cook-time ensures that sweet and smoky flavor we all love.

Serves 6

Prep time: 45 minutes

Cook time: 2 hours

Soak beans overnight. Drain water and refill to cover. Bring to a boil and simmer until beans are partially cooked, about 25 minutes. Drain but reserve 2 cups of bean water. Preheat oven to 300degrees. In a Dutch oven, brown bacon in olive oil. Add onions and cook until translucent. Add garlic and cook until it just turns golden. Add reserved bean water, ketchup, sugar, mustard, and pepper. Cook, stirring constantly for about 5 minutes. Reduce to medium-low, add beans and simmer for 5 minutes. Transfer to oven and bake, uncovered for 2 hours.
