  • 1 lb dry navy beans soaked overnight and drained
  • 1 Tbsp seasoned salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • ½ lb thick cut bacon
  • 1 medium sweet onion diced
  • 1 small red bell pepper seeded and diced
  • 1 small green or poblano pepper seeded and diced
  • 2 clove garlic finely minced
  • 2 lb boneless country style pork ribs
  • 1 12 oz jar chili sauce or ketchup
  • ½ cup molasses
  • cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 Tbsp liquid smoke
  • 2 Tbsp barbecue seasoning [i.e. Smokehouse Maple Barbecue Magic or similar]
  • 1 ½ tsp dry mustard
  • ¼ tsp ground cayenne chipotle or ancho pepper


  • To soak the beans: Wash and pick over the dry beans. Place into a large bowl and cover with 8-10 cups cold water, or the amount specified on the package. Soak overnight, then drain well.
  • To prepare: Spray the inside of a 6 quart oval slow cooker with cooking spray. Pour the beans into the slow cooker adding just enough cold water to cover by 1-inch. Around 5-6 cups. (The amount can vary depending on the shape of the slow cooker used.)
  • Add seasoned salt, black pepper and bay leaves. Cover and cook on high for 3 hours.
  • Meanwhile, In a large skillet, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove with a slotted spoon reserving the 4 Tbsp of the drippings in pan.
  • Add onion and peppers to the skillet. Saute for 5 minutes over medium high heat or until beginning to brown. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute longer.
  • After the beans have cooked on high for 3 hours, uncover and stir. Discard bay leaves. Add sauteed vegetables, chili sauce, ribs and remaining ingredients to the slow cooker reserving the cooked bacon until the end. Stir well and cover.
  • Cook on high for an additional 3-4 hours or until the beans are tender and cooked through and the ribs easily break apart with a fork. [Tip: Slow cookers vary in intensity of heat, adjust the time to your equipment.]
  • Keep warm until serving. Break-up the ribs into large pieces and mix through the beans with the crumbled bacon just before serving.
