The Best Barbecue Baked Beans

If you’re a fan of Barbecue Baked Beans, you’re in for a real treat because this recipe is amazing. Instead of a “from scratch” recipe, I’m backing all the way up to the last recipe I posted, Country Style Barbecue Ribs, and I’m stealing the leftover barbecue sauce to prepare this one. So, instead of adding bacon, which most recipes do, these baked beans have the drippings from country style ribs cooked right into the sauce. Plus, there’s a few other secret ingredients to kick this up even another level and it’s what every good steak house should be serving.

Navy Beans are the prize favorite to make Baked Beans.

Legumes for Barbecue Baked Beans

If you’re wondering what kind of beans to use to make your Barbecue Baked Beans, Navy Beans are the prize favorite. The truth is however, you can use what ever you want. Though white beans are generally more popular in most recipes, you can use kidney or pinto without any problems. If you’re interested in saving some stewing time, you can even purchase canned beans. Doing that will eliminate an entire night of soaking and two hours of simmer.

Stewed Barbecue Baked Beans

If you’re curious why this Barbecue Baked Beans recipe isn’t baked at all, you wouldn’t be the first. Some say that it’s a myth that Baked Beans are actually even baked and that the beans are really stewed more than anything. That suggests that anyone that takes the name literal and bakes there beans instead is wrong, right? Nah, it’s just another efficient way to apply heat. Lot’s of recipes call for grilling, so that they can get that smokey flavor, and that can be a great way to cook them too. So, I think it’s just a matter of personal preference. I simmer mine on the stove out of convenience because it’s easier to just pull the lid and stir than dealing with the ends and outs of the oven.

I'm just a regular guy in search of his bliss and I find that bliss in food and all of its many cultural differences. A very seasoned and experience chef taught me how to use my pallet to best serve and prepare a dish with all of its natural flavors from other foods before ever introducing “forced flavoring”, such as salt. My goal isn’t just to teach how to incorporate these products into simple gourmet dishes but to show, how easy, it can be done from anyone's Kitchen with cheaper, convenient substitutions that will not only blow your mind, but insure that most no one will be able to ever tell the difference!
