So I love baked beans butI hate thinking about what is added to a can of baked beans. So my first thought, when I got my Instant Pot, was to be able to make staples in my house in a small amount of time. So I tried out a few ways to make baked beans and here is my favorite way.
Baked Beans Instant Pot Recipe
What you need
1 pound of dried northern beans (I got small beans)
1 cup onion diced up
2 teaspoons of mustard
1/2 cup of ketchup
3/4 cup of molasses
1/4 of cup of brown sugar
2 cups of chicken stock
1/2 cup of Worcestershire sauce
some salt and pepper
How to make
First, you will soak your 1 pound of beans in a pot overnight. Normally I start to soak them in the morning and but dinner they are ready.
You will need to discard the old water, and then add
all the other ingredients in the pot.
Now that everything is in the pot, you will stir the beans up well.
Place the lid on and turn your Instant Pot on to manual mode for 50 minutes.
Once it beeps it is done you will let it stay on keep warm mode.
Let the Instant Pot naturally release for 10 minutes and after that use, the quick release method for any residual pressure left.
Open the lid and check the tenderness of the beans, if you don’t feel done cook for an extra 5-7 minutes.
If you like the way the tenderness is you can let cool down and eat.
