Homemade Country Style Baked Beans

These country-style baked beans are made with a little ketchup, and feel free to substitute diced bacon for the salt pork. These are delicious served with a barbecue or cookout.


  • 1 pound dried navy beans or yellow eye
  • 6 cups water
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 pound salt pork, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 tablespoon light brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup ketchup


Rinse beans and pick over, discarding imperfect beans and any small stones or dirt; drain. Cover beans with water in a medium saucepan; bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes. Cover and let beans stand for 1 hour.

Add more water, as necessary, to cover the beans. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer gently for about 1 hour, or until tender.

Drain beans, reserving liquid. Put half of the beans in a casserole or bean pot; sprinkle with half of the onion. Add diced salt pork, remaining beans, and the remaining chopped onion. In a bowl or measuring cup, combine the salt, pepper, mustard, brown sugar, and 1/2 cup of the bean cooking liquid. Add the ketchup and 1 more cup of cooking liquid. Pour over the beans. Add enough water to cover beans. Cover the dish and bake at 275° for about 6 hours, or until beans reach desired consistency. Remove the cover for the last 25 minutes of baking time.
Serves 6 to 8.
