Southern BBQ Beans is a super tasty side dish that is so simple yet tastes like you spent hours on it (if you have been following this blog, you know that this is HUGE with a lot of our recipes). They’ve got hickory smoked bacon, brown sugar, ketchup, AND mustard, red onions…I mean these things are awesome. They are ALWAYS a hit with any BBQ but also pair perfectly with a big juicy steak.

This recipe is wonderful because it can be prepared in several ways: I was originally taught by my husbands sweet Grandmother in Alabama to make this recipe in a dutch oven. I then started making it in a Crock-Pot over the years, and when the Instant Pot came out, well, that’s the only way I make it now 😉

Ingredients:

  • 4- 16oz cans of Pork and Beans drained
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Ketchup
  • 6-8 Shakes of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 tsp Onion Powder
  • 2 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 cup BBQ Sauce
  • 1/4 cup Mustard
  • 1/2 package of Bacon, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 large Red Onion, large diced
