Slow-Cooked Beans


Smoky, sweet, salty barbecued beans basically cook themselves when you throw everything in the slow-cooker.

This recipe is courtesy of Betty Crocker.


  • 1/2 Pound bacon, cut into ½-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 Cup tomato ketchup
  • 1/2 Cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 Cup light molasses
  • 1 Tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 Teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 15 ounce cans great northern beans, drained and rinsed
  • 2 15-ounce cans black beans, drained, ½ cup liquid reserved


Cook the bacon and onion in a skillet set over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onions are tender.

In a slow cooker, mix the bacon, onion, and remaining ingredients, including the reserved bean liquid. Cover and cook on low heat for 3-4 hours.
