2 (15 ounce) cans
baked beans with pork
packed brown sugar
red wine vinegar
salt and pepper to taste
These beans are great! I only used 1/4 cup each of brown sugar and ketchup, so there was no problem with it being "runny". I also cooked 4 slices of bacon then chopped it and mixed it in. That way I could use more bacon, but keep the grease out.
I'm sorry, we did not enjoy these. We found them bland. Thanks anyway.
Jackie's description of her recipe is perfect: "A quick and easy way to dress up ordinary pork and beans. The measurements are estimates, but really you can adjust anything to personal taste." I couldn't have said it better myself. Other than reducing the brown sugar by half, I stuck to the recipe. As hubby said, "they were wonderful." And I say this was a big payoff for very little effort using ingredients right off the pantry shelf!
Will def make again BUT was mushy.... Too much liquid between the juice from the beans and ketchup! I think I read a review that said they made twice - 2nd time draining the liquid from the beans 1st. Plans to do that next time! Overall delish!
At first I wasn't sure if this would be good because the ingredients seemed strange. I threw all of it in the crockpot on low for 2 hours, and WOW! It was sure yummy. I would suggest having it with some BBQ chicken or something like that. YUM YUM!!
I doubled recipe, but only used 1/2 of the sugar. I used old style mustard instead of regular, 5 slices of bacon and baked them in the oven for about 3 hours. They thickened up very nicely. Great beans. Will make again & again
Very good and easy to make. I used less sugar than the recipe called for with good results.
Wow! So easy and yet so good! This reminds me of the way my Grandma Helen used to make baked beans for every summer picnic. Other than cutting back on the ketchup and adding a bit of molasses and liquid smoke I wouldn't change a thing. This definitely is a great way to take a regular 'ol can of baked beans and turn them into something special without a lot of effort!
