slow cooker bourbon bbq beans

These bourbon bbq beans are the perfect side dish to take to any summer barbecue.

Ingredients

Directions

Drain and rinse beans and set aside. Slice bacon into strips and cook in a skillet over medium-high heat until crispy. Transfer bacon to a paper towel-lined plate. Drain all but 3 Tbsp. bacon grease from the skillet. Cook onion and garlic in bacon grease over medium heat until soft, 5 to 7 min. Meanwhile, add remaining ingredients except beans to the slow cooker. Whisk everything together then add beans, bacon, and onion-garlic mixture. Stir to combine, cover, and cook on low for 8 hours. After 8 hours, mixture will be soupy; turn the heat off but keep slow cooker covered for 30 min. to 2 hours to thicken beans before serving.

Yields

8 to 12 servings
