I need a kick ass baked bean recipe! - Page 2

Re: I need a kick ass baked bean recipe!

..for a little extra flavor, when you put the beans in the smoker, make sure they are under something to catch some drippings.

I did thid last weekend with some good old Bush's baked beans with a little brown sugar and chopped up smoked rib meat..and let them sit under several slabs of ribs for 3 hours..then brought them inside to finish in the oven at 350 for an hour (just to cook out a bit of the juice)

..even my wife, who is not a big baked bean fan, was loving them :D

I got the idea from a Food TV BBQ special..I believe they had their beans under a brisket and added the burnt ends for the meat

Good idea. I can easly fit it under my pulled pork when I make that.

Re: I need a kick ass baked bean recipe!

Here is a recipe that I have tried and got great reviews from those that thought they would help out and eat some free food.

Baked Beans

8 slices bacon, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
3/4 cup ketchup
3/4 cup tomato puree
1/2 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1/4 cup cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 twenty-eight ounce cans red beans, drained and rinsed
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Put a heavy-bottomed pot (with a lid) over medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring often,
until the fat renders and bacon begins to crisp, about 6-8 minutes. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 5 minutes more. Stir in the ketchup, tomato puree, brown sugar, vinegar,
Worcestershire, salt, pepper, and cayenne and mix well. Bring to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes.
Stir in the beans until well coated, cover, and bake in the oven for 1 hour. Remove the lid and continue baking until sauce thickens and the beans begin to brown, about 15 minutes more. Remove
from the oven and allow to cool at least 15 minutes before serving.
Serve warm or at room temperature.

I posted in the Labor Day post that I tried your beans. I was very impressed, as I achived almost the same flavor as a much more involved and complicated recipe. Thanks for the recipe!

You will need the following:
1 lb of bacon
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 sweet onion
Brown Sugar
Yellow mustard
Famous Dave's Texas Pit BBQ sauce 19 oz jar
2 large cans of pork and beans ( the cheap stuff) Walmart or cambell pork and beans...plain!
Partially freeze the bacon ( makes it easy to cut)
Ok the sauce:
Add the bbq sauce to a saucepan no heat at this time...
Add 1/4 cup yellow mustard
Add 1/2 cup molasses
Add 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
Stir until mixed
Cook over low heat until brown sugar is fully disolved
As soon as it starts to bubble up from the bottom of the saucepan remove from heat!
The Fixins
Take the frozen bacon and cut the whole slab(package) in 1/4 inch strips
Put bacon ( cut up) in a fry pan add heat stir and watch so that you don't over cook it...while bacon is cooking
Chop green pepper, red pepper, and sweet onion and set aside.
while bacon is still cooking open the 2 cans of beans......
First can of beans go into a strainer and rinse with water until water runs clear ( no sauce)
Place that batch into crock pot
Second can of beans do the same as the first can ( do not do 2 cans together you will not rinse off all the sauce)
Place second can in crock pot
As bacon starts to brown remove bacon from frypan and place on paper towel to absorb grease DO NOT REMOVE GREASE FROM FRYPAN!!
After bacon is removed place bacon grease on high heat....
Add the chopped green pepper, red pepper, and sweet onion
Cook until onions somewhat clear and green pepper JUST starts to brown...
Take bacon that was draining and place in crock pot
Once the pepper onion batch is cooked place on paper towel to absorb grease
Add BBQ sauce to crock pot
Add the onion and green pepper that was cooked and drained
cook on high heat in crock pot for 2 hours (covered) stir every 15 min
Then lower temp to LOW for 2 more hours ( covered ) stir every 30 min.
DONE !!!!!
