Slow Cooker Bourbon Baked Beans
I bought bourbon for the first time. I wasn't sure what kind to buy, but chose the Jim Beam because I recognized the name and it was on sale. and then I made the most awesome baked beans known to man. I checked with Shirley--- distilled alcohol is gluten free, yet some people react to anything made with grains. If you know you react, this might not be a good recipe for you. Here's a bit more on that from Shirley, at Gluten Free Easily . The Ingredients. serves 8-10 as a side dish, 4-6 as main course 1 pound pinto beans, soaked overnight and then drained and rinsed (if you don't have time to soak overnight, no problem. Put them in a large pot, and cover completely with water. Bring to a rapid boil for 10 minutes, then turn off stove and cover pot. Let your beans sit for 1 hour, then drain water and put beans into crockpot) 8 ounces bacon, cooked, crumbled, and drained 1 onion, diced and browned 4-6 cloves garlic, diced and browned 1 cup prepared barbecue sauce (read labels carefully if avoiding gluten) 1 cup lightly packed brown sugar 2 tablespoons molasses 1 tablespoon ground mustard 2 cups chicken broth 1 cup bourbon The Directions. Use a 6-quart slow cooker. In a large skillet on the stovetop (or use your Ninja! ) brown the bacon, onion, and garlic until the bacon is crisp and the fat has been rendered. Discard the fat, and pour the bacon mixture into an empty slow cooker. Add the soaked and drained pinto beans. Now add the brown sugar, molasses , and dried ground mustard. Stir in chicken broth and bourbon. Cover, and cook on low for 10 hours, or until beans are soft. If you live in a high-altitude, your beans may take longer to cook. If you prefer to cook on high, check after 6 hours or so. I served our beans with homemade corn bread made from masa. This is the recipe I used: Preheat oven to 425° and lightly butter a cake pan. In a mixing bowl, combine: 1 1/2 cups masa 1/2 cup all purpose flour (I use Pamela's Baking Mix as my gluten free all purpose flour) 2 teaspoons baking powder 1 teaspoon kosher salt 1 tablespoon white sugar wet ingredients: 1 1/3 cups milk 1/2 stick melted butter (1/4 cup) 2 eggs Mix the dry ingredients together until well-incorporated and the baking powder isn't clumpy. You can sift, if you'd like, but that's kind of a lot of work for a quick cornbread. I end up using my fingers sometimes to break up clumps. Then mix in the wet ingredients --- use a fork or a whisk, no need to use a machine. Pour batter into pan -- it'll be quite thick, and you may need to shove it around to get it in place. Bake at 425° for about 20 minutes. The Verdict. These beans are perfect. I am SO looking forward to the next potluck --- they had tons of flavor and smelled absolutely amazing. All 5 of us licked our bowls clean. I'm really very pleased with this recipe, and I think you will be, too. If you don't want to use bacon, I bet a saved ham-bone/hock would be *perfect*. The masa cornbread was an experiment. I didn't have cornmeal in the house and really wanted cornbread. This is quite tasty-- it's nowhere near as sweet as traditional cornbread and tastes "cornier" if that makes sense. This would be a more traditional flavor that the pioneers or Native Americans would have had. at least that's what I told the kids. a few announcements: ~ Ninja has *very generously* increased my cooking system package to now include the roasting kit, the baking kit, the mini warmer, the travel tote, free shipping, and a 5-year warranty for the Holiday season.
