Steps | Red Bell Pepper and Bacon BBQ Beans

  1. Chop onion, red bell pepper and bacon and sauté.
  2. Add butter, chopped onion, red bell pepper and bacon to a heavy pot. Over medium heat sauté the vegetables and brown the bacon, about 3 - 5 minutes.

    Once the bacon is browned and the vegetables starting to brown reduce heat and remove excess fat from the bacon.

  3. Add Beans and remaining ingredient, simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add beans (no need to drain or rinse), brown sugar, mustard, water, thyme, bay leaf and salt and pepper. Bring to boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes or more.

    If you like your beans saucier, cover the pot while simmering. If you like thicker beans, partially cover or uncover the beans while simmering.

  5. Add your favorite barbeque and enjoy!
  6. Beans and BBQ - Yawesome!
