  • Instant Pot


For the Beans

  • 1 cup dried pinto beans
  • 3 cups water or broth
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper

For the Baked Beans

  • 1 teaspoon cooking oil
  • 3 strips bacon, chopped
  • 1/4 onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1/4 cup barbeque sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tablespoon liquid smoke
  • 1 teaspoon dried ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika


To Cook the Beans

  • Add dry beans, salt, pepper and 3 cups of water or broth to the Instant Pot. Cook on High Pressure for 30 minutes. Allow the cooker to naturally release pressure (about 30 minutes).
  • Drain the beans in a colander and rinse under cold water. Clean the pot and return it to the machine.

To Make the Baked Beans

  • Turn the Instant Pot on Saute. Add 1 tsp cooking oil. Add the bacon and the onion and allow them to saute for about 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn’t burn. Add the garlic. Cook for 1 more minute. Turn off the Instant Pot.
  • Add the cooked beans to the Instant Pot with the rest of the ingredients. Stir to combine. Put on the lid and make sure the valve points to sealing.
  • Cook on high pressure for 10 minutes followed by a 10-minute natural pressure release. After 10 minutes, manually release the rest of the pressure and remove the lid.
  • Serve with green onions and/or fried onions on top, if desired.
