Deb’s Home Made Baked Beans Easy

  • Author: Debbie


  • 1 lb. dry navy beans
  • 1 cup brown sugar (packed (I use dark brown sugar, but light works if its all you have))
  • water to cover up to 1″ above beans
  • 4 tsp. dry mustard
  • 4 tbsp. molasses
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup (optional)
  • 1 tsp. salt (or to taste)
  • 1 large onion (diced finely)
  • 1/8 scant tsp ginger
  • 1/8 scant tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4– lb. pork (a boneless pork chops chunked into small pieces works well or I used the trimmings from the ribs Add more if you wish)
  • Dash- Hot Sauce (I prefer Louisiana Hot Sauce brand (This is optional, especially if you have children that will be eating.))


  1. Wash and pick over beans, removing any stones, broken beans, etc.
  2. In a saucepan, cover beans with water (about 1 inch above top of beans). Simmer beans for 10 minutes.
  3. Let cool 5 minutes.
  4. Cover and leave to soak overnight.
  5. The next day pour off any remaining water used to soak beans, Transfer to CrockPot
  6. Mix ingredients (except for pork) and stir into beans.
  7. Submerge pork in beans. A slice of hickory smoked bacon can be placed over the top of the beans.
  8. Turn CrockPot on low setting.
  9. Cover and cook for 6 hours, or until beans are tender. If beans start to become dry during cooking, add a small amount of hot water.
  10. When beans are tender, taste and adjust seasonings turn off crock pot and allow sauce to thicken slightly and beans to absorb more of the seasonings.
  11. Slice up bits of the pork to add to each serving.
