Cooking with the JETS!

Baked Beans in a Slow Cooker

1 lb dry navy beans
3 cups vegetable broth
1 onion diced
3 cloves of garlic
2 T soy sauce ( I used low sodium )
2 T apple cider vinegar
2 T dijon mustard
2 T molasses
2 T garlic chili paste
1/2 cup bbq sauce any one to your liking
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt/pepper
2 tsp cornstarch
1/4 cup water

Let the beans soak over night in water, rinse. Add the beans to the slow cooker. Then add remaining ingredients except cornstarch and water into slow cooker, combine and cook at low for 8 hours. Add the water and cornstarch, stir, let sit for another 5 mins, serve. 

The house will smell so good, I know it's easier to open up a can and eat, but this recipe came out so good I would definitely make again.   This recipe brings me back to my great aunt. She used to make baked beans when we had the family get-togethers. She would have three slow cookers going. One time, I said to her "Wow that's a lot" and she told me "Let's see if there's any leftovers." There were not any leftovers and as you can see in my picture,there wasn't much leftover here! We enjoyed it very much, hope you will also.

This is the perfect way to cook. Less cleanup and no need to watch over it. Slow cookers rock!!

How yummy! It's been years since I fixed up some slow cooked beans like this. Set it and forget it!
