  • 1/2 lb bacon, lightly cooked
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup bell pepper, diced
  • 2 cup beef broth
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 15 oz tomato sauce (1 15-oz can)
  • 1/2 cup Original Molasses
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp Trappey's® Red Devil™ Hot Sauce
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 tsp salt

  1. Sort through dry beans to remove any stones or hard beans. Place beans in a large pot, cover with water, soak overnight.

  3. Brown ground beef in a skillet placed over medium heat. Drain off fat.
  4. Add cooked beef to pan with beans. Add onions and bell pepper.

  7. Add ketchup. Add salt, if needed. Mix in black pepper.
  8. Return beans, uncovered, back to oven and bake about one hour, or until beans are tender. Serve warm.
