Instant Pot BBQ "Baked" Beans

Updated: Mar 20, 2022


  • 3 15oz cans of white beans (I used Great Northern beans)drained and rinsed

  • 2 medium yellow onions diced

  • 5 cloves garlic minced

  • 3/4 cup water

  • 2 tsp dried mustard powder

  • 1/2 tsp sea salt

  • 1/4 tsp black pepper (to taste)

  • 1/4 tsp smoked or regular paprika (I use smoked)

  • 1/6th cup pure maple syrup ( I used half of a 1/3 cup)

  • 1/4 cup ketchup

  • 1/4 cup organic molasses

  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (I used Rib Rack Original Flavor)

  • 1 Tbsp apple cider vinegar

  • 1 tsp liquid smoke hickory flavor (you can skip this if you don't have it available)

Instructions (from canned beans) See below for instructions from dried beans.

  • Select “saute” add 2 TBSP water. When it starts steaming, add onions and garlic and cook until onions are soft, about 5 mins, stirring often.

  • Add drained beans, water, mustard powder, salt, pepper, paprika, maple syrup, ketchup, molasses, bbq sauce, apple cider vinegar and liquid smoke.

  • Stir well. Cancel the “saute” function, secure lid, and make sure the pot is in the sealing position.

  • Select “manual” or “pressure cook” and adjust time to 8 minutes.

  • When time is up, let the pot naturally release for 10 minutes. Then release any remaining pressure.

  • Select “saute” and cook, stirring often, for several minutes, or until the beans are cooked down and not too liquid.

  • Beans will thicken more as they cool a bit. Enjoy.

If making from dried beans:

Use 1lb dried navy beans

let soak overnight in 8 cups of water

change water in recipe to 1 & 2/3 cups

change cooking time in Instant Pot to 30 minutes

change natural release time to 15 minutes
