Summertime Series: Beer Baked Beans

July 1, 2010

Oh, you suckers.  Every time I mention beer or bourbon ya’ll are chomping at the bit to get a look at the recipe.  You’re in luck- this one DOES have beer in it.  You will still have to drink some if you want to get loopy.  And did I mention how good these beans are?  Every time I make these people gobble them up.

4 cans pinto or northern beans, drained and rinsed
2 cups water
1 can chicken broth
2 bay leaves
1 medium onion, chopped
2 slices bacon, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed or minced
3/4 cup ketchup
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
3 tbs dijon mustard
2 tbs worcestershire sauce
1 tsp chili powder
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 bottle amber beer

Preheat oven to 300º  In a large pot, combine beans through bay leaves.  Bring to boil, simmer 15 minutes.  Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid.  Discard bay leaves.  Heat bacon and onion over medium heat and cook until onions are super tender.  Add garlic through black pepper, then beans, beer, and 1 cup cooking liquid.  Bring to boil and simmer 10 minutes.  Pour into deep baking dish, cover, and cook 45 minutes.
