But forget the store-bought version - With this recipe, you'll be making your own baked beans, flavored with brown sugar, bourbon, bacon & molasses in no time!
Let's get started!
Disclosure: We use a slow cooker for this recipe, but you could ju
Heat a large cast iron pan over medium-high heat* and add some oil & chopped bacon. Cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add in the onion and garlic and cook until onions and garlic are soft & bacon is browned (about 4-5 minutes)
Add in the remaining ingredients, and mix well to ensure everything is well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring everything to a simmer and cover with a tight fitting lid.
Transfer your cast iron pan to a preheated 300 degree F oven (or grill!). Bake for 45 minutes, stirring once halfway through cooking. Remove the lid, stir, and continue to bake until the sauce is thickened and sticky, about an additional 30-45 minutes. If needed during baking, add more water or broth to get the perfect consistency.
Taste beans and adjust for salt and pepper to taste. Top with more crumbled bacon.
As always: Happy Grilling!
