Buster's Baked Beans

Serves 20 according to Buster. That's ridiculous.

  • 2 pounds dry white Navy Beans
  • 2 cups dark beer
  • 1/2 pound salt pork
  • 2 large onions, chopped
  • 2 cups molasses
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup catsup
  • 2 tablespoons dry mustard
  • 2 tablespoons vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 pound bacon, chopped

Wash the beans, cover with water and soak overnight.

In the morning change the water, add the salt pork and bring to a boil over high heat. Turn the heat to low, cover, and simmer for one hour.

Drain beans, reserving broth. Mix the beans, 2 cups of broth, 1 cup of beer and remaining ingredients in a Dutch oven.

Bake at 250 degree for 6 to 9 hours, adding beer as needed. Uncover the pot during the last hour of cooking so that the top becomes crusty.
