Classic Barbecue Baked Beans

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup dark rum or water
  • 1 vidalia onion, chopped
  • 1 red or green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 can (4 oz.) green chili peppers, chopped
  • 1/4 lb. barbecue beef brisket, burnt ends or rib meat (approx. 2 cups)
  • 5 cans baked beans (any variety)
  • 1 Tbsp. brown sugar
  • 2 cups KC Masterpiece® Kansas City Classic Barbecue Sauce®
  • 1/4 cup water or beer

Prep

  1. In a small bowl, soak raisins in the dark rum (or water) for about 1 hour.
  2. Chop the onions, bell pepper and green chili peppers.
  3. Preheat the oven to 225°F.
  4. Heat the oil in a large nonstick frying pan over medium-low heat.

Cook

  1. Sauté the onions, bell pepper and green chili peppers until tender, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the raisins, cooked vegetables, meat scraps, baked beans, brown sugar, and the KC Masterpiece® sauce. Place the mixture into a large casserole dish and bake uncovered for 1 ½ - 2 hours. Add more water or beer as necessary to keep the beans from drying out.
  3. Remove the beans from the oven and mix well. Serve immediately.
