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
