BBQ Baked Beans – Electric Pressure Cooker

22 04 2017

All right all you Instant Pot and Electric Pressure Cooker people. This one is for you. A summer BBQ staple, a picnic must, sure you can buy them in a can for $3-4 each, reheat and go. They are okay, in fact, they are pretty good. You can and should make them yourself though, an entirely different experience, they are amazing. I’m talking of course about BBQ Baked Beans! With the pressure cooker, it’s honestly just silly to buy them, check out how simple this is.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 pound dried navy beans
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 10-ounces (8 slices) thick-sliced bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 2 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

If you have the time, rinse beans in a colander and sort through the beans to remove any debris and soak overnight in the pressure cooking pot with 8 cups water mixed with 1 tablespoon salt. If you don’t, boil them for two minutes, turn of heat and let them soak for an hour before moving forward with the rest of the recipe. Regardless of which way you go, drain and rinse the beans before adding back to the recipe.

Select Browning and add bacon to pressure cooking pot. Cook until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Cook the onion in bacon drippings until tender, about 3 minutes. Scrap up brown bits on the bottom of the pot as the onions cook.

Add 2 1/2 cups water, molasses, ketchup, brown sugar, dry mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper to the onions in the pot and stir to combine. Stir in the soaked beans.

Select high pressure and 35 minutes cook time. When timer beeps, turn pressure cooker off and wait for 10 minutes, after 10 minutes use a quick pressure release to release any remaining pressure. Discard any beans that are floating, Check several beans to see if they’re tender. If not, pressure cooker for a few minutes longer.

Stir in cooked bacon. Select Simmer and simmer beans uncovered, stirring occasionally so the bottom doesn’t burn, until the sauce is the desired consistency.

This will feed your family with plenty of leftovers, unless you have teenagers, then they’ll all be gone. Make another batch.
