This recipe is so easy to put together. I use the canned beans instead of the dried beans in order to remove the step of soaking and boiling the beans. Also, in this recipe, I use sautéed bacon that is drained so the fat content is cut down extremely from the traditional salt pork. Enjoy with bacon and eggs or as a tasty side for BBQ ribs!
- 4 (540 ml) cans navy beans (in water)
- 1 large white onion, chopped
- 1 lb sliced bacon
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 1 cup blackstrap molasses
- 1⁄2 cup dark brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons white vinegar
- 2 teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 3 dashes liquid smoke
