Barbecued Beans

Slow Cooker Barbecued Beans

These tangy beans travel well—transport in the same pot they’re cooked in and they’ll stay hot for serving.


  • 1/2 pound bacon, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup mild-flavor (light) molasses
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 2 (15.5 ounce) cans great northern beans, drained, rinsed
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans black beans, drained, 1/2 cup liquid reserved


  1. In 10-inch skillet, cook bacon and onion over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until bacon is crisp and onions are tender; drain.
  2. In 3 1/2- to 4-quart slow cooker, mix bacon, onion and remaining ingredients, including reserved liquid.
  3. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 3 to 4 hours.
