I am giving this 5 stars because these beans are awsome indeed. However, let me tell you my bean story. My dad has been making "his famous beans" since I can remember and they are some kind of version of these except he eyeballs all the ingredients. The 3 ingredient that are going to make or break the recipe are the vinegar, brn sugar and ketchup which is why i looked up the recipe. When you eyeball every time they tend to always be slightly off so I wanted exact amounts. I am an all recipes junky and I wanted a guideline because I always get bombarded with raves about my beans. when to me they have "tasted better". So heres the thing, everyone has different tastes. Try making these beans with a whole slab of regular bacon instead of the sausage. Let it brown until it is as crispy as it gets until it burns. add in your onion and peppers and continue to saute for 10 min or so until they are nicely browned. Dont worry, the liquid from the veggies will keep the bacon from getting browner, trust me, the bacon somehow stops cooking. If you dont let the bacon get very well done first you will end up with soggy bacon. anyways, then add your beans and try starting out with 2 tbsp vinegar, 1/4 C brn sugar, 1/4 C ketchup. If it isnt quite right for you at that time, try adding equal amounts until it is to your desired flavor. This recipe is way too sweet for me, and I love putting sugar in almost all my sauces. I could tell when i made it that is was way more than i had
