Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 13 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 2 - 3 Smoked bone-in pork chops, cut into cubes
- 1 cup yellow onion, finely diced
- 1 cup green bell pepper, finely diced
- 2 garlic, minced
- 1 can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can navy beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 can great northern beans, drained and rinsed
- 1 kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- ¾ cup ketchup
- ¼ cup molasses
- ½ cup chicken stock
- 1 tablespoon yellow mustard
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- 2/3 cup brown sugar
Turn on the Instant Pot and select "sauté' mode, adjust to more. Heat oil. When hot, add the pork chops and cook, stirring occasionally until lightly browned. Add onion, green pepper and garlic. Cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Press "Cancel".
Add beans, ketchup, molasses, chicken stock, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, black pepper, and sugar. Mix to combine. Secure lid and close pressure-release valve.
Select "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" adjust to 8 minutes. When the time is over, let the pressure release on its own for 5 minutes. Then, carefully turn the valve to "Venting," to release any extra pressure that might still be in there. Then remove the lid. Press "cancel".
Stir before serving.
You can use 8 oz of bacon instead of smoked pork chops.
Add 1 teaspoon hot sauce if you like the heat.
Store baked beans in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to a week, or fresse for up to 3 months.
WHICH BEANS DO YOU USE TO MAKE BAKED BEANS?
You can use most types of beans. I like to mix different kinds to add more texture and flavor. Beans such as kidney beans have a much firmer skin than those of pinto or navy beans which are creamier.
CAN YOU DOUBLE THIS BAKED BEAN RECIPE?
Yes! Double the ingredients but keep the same cooking time.
DO I NEED TO RINSE THE BEANS?
It’s highly recommended. Rinsing the bean will reduce the quantity of sodium and will also help you to not feel so gassy after eating the beans.
CAN I MAKE THIS RECIPE WITH DRY BEANS?
When using dry beans I like to soak the beans overnight, but if you are pressed for time, you can also cook the beans without pre-soaking them, just increase the Instant Pot cooking time to 40 minutes and add 1 cup of chicken stock.
To soak black beans: Place 4 quarts water in a large bowl and add beans. Soak at least 8 hours or overnight.
