Guinness Baked Beans

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

We enjoyed these beans last week. They are delicious! We are still in the middle of the cold season here (as in having a cold, the weather is still quite warm!), but now it is my dear husband. While he made this lovely dish, I will share it with you....

Beans, bacon and beer, Guinness Baked Beans.

Guinness Baked Beans
adapted from: Spilling the Beans

Note:  this dish may be baked in a 350-degree oven for 1 hour, stirring once or twice along the way, or you may use a slow cooker. We took the slow cooker route. I think the oven would produce a slightly thicker sauce, but we had no trouble cleaning our plates!

5 slices of bacon, chopped
2 onions, diced
1 1/2 c ketchup, barbecue sauce or tomato sauce mixed with 1/4 c packed brown sugar
1 bottle Guinness - you may also use apple juice or stock
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
1/4 c molasses
1/4 c Dijon, yellow or grainy mustard
4 c cooked kidney beans, red or white*
4 c cooked small white beans*
Salt and Pepper to taste

reserved bacon
A few drops Tabasco sauce if desired

Fry chopped bacon until crisp, drain and set aside. Remove excess dripping from the skillet, add onions to the pan, continue cooking until onions are golden.

Combine onions and remaining ingredients in the crock of the slow cooker, stir well. Cover and cook on low 6 hours. About 30 minutes before serving, stir in the reserved bacon and Tabasco sauce if using.

  1. Hi Melynda,
    Using the slow cooker is a good idea!

  3. Sounds delicious. Thanks for sharing at the HomeAcre hop. Be sure to stop by at or one of the other hosts to submit another this week.

  4. Sorry about the colds, Melynda.
    I think I'd go the slow cooker route too. Still too hot to have the oven on for any length of time. Guinness...what a clever addition to baked beans. Thank you for sharing!
