Slow Cooker Pork and Beans
Prep: 30 mins Cook Time: 6.5 hours
2 lbs of your favorite dried beans (I used white because that's what I had)
1 tbsp of salt
3 cups of water
1 pkg of bacon or cut up pork chops (whichever you prefer, I used bacon, but make sure it's really crispy)
1 cup of onion, diced
1 cup of ketchup
1/2 cup of brown sugar
3 tbsp of maple syrup
4 tbsp of molasses
4 tbsp of honey
2 tsp dry mustard (I've heard that some people use Dijon mustard instead)
2 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
Soak your beans overnight, at least 8 hours, I soaked mine probably close to 12 or 13 hours.
Drain your beans and put them in your crockpot, add salt and water (I did a little more than this recipe so I put enough in just to cover them). Cook on high for 6 hours. Strain off foam.
In the last 1/2 hour of your beans cooking, get the rest ready to go. Cook up your bacon and brown your onions. Add the remaining ingredients together in a medium sized bowl, stir until well mixed. Once the 6 hours is up, add the bacon, onion and sauce and cook on high for another 30 mins.
