I cooked these beans low and slow all day in the crockpot. If you are in a hurry, you can cook them on HIGH for a few hours and they will be good to go. To save time on the day I made these beans, I cooked the bacon and beef the day before. It seriously took all of my self-control to not eat the bacon and save it for the beans. Fluffy & I might have snuck a taste of one piece. Don’t tell the other cats!

  1. I've made a variation of this recipe for about 40 years, without beef. Call it 'Sweet-Hot Baked Beans.' For a 55 oz can of Bush's or B & M beans I add in: 2 TBLS Molasses, 5 TBLS tomato catsup, !/2 cup brown sugar, 1 tsp Worchester sauce, 1/4 tsp each of chili powder, mustard powder, cinnamon, and Tabasco sauce and diced cooked bacon. Then bake in cast iron, covered, Dutch Oven for a few hours at 325 degrees. Uncover and cook down to desired consistency. 5 hours on low in a slow-cooker would probably do as well.
    I've made this for up to 125 people, served with Tri-tip, BBQ chicken and a green or pasta salad. Always a hit.

  2. Beings I am the only one in the house, I figured out how to do the ingredients in half. Would the directions be as the full batch? Could I all do a full batch and freeze half of it for later; thaw the day before needing it in refrigerator and slow cook as directed. Always trying to figure out less time in the kitchen. Thank You.

  3. Made this tonight for dinner. I have made versions of this dish in the past, but this recipe is very good!

  4. I've made this recipe for years and years except for the bacon….I've never tried that and it sounds good. The only time I make this is on family camping trips. We call it Hobo Stew. The kids love it so does hubby. It's a tradition for us. Since I only make it at the campground, it keeps it "special". ????
