These Crockpot BBQ Brown Sugar Baked Beans may be one of the easiest recipes I’ve ever cooked. You literally just dump all of the ingredients into the crockpot and walk away. No fuss, no muss.
The lack of effort required to make these homemade baked beans does not translate into a lack of flavor. You’ll be the hero of any party if you show up toting a crockpot full of these suckers!
One thing I do not like is runny baked beans. I like my baked beans to have a rich sauce that stays put and doesn’t leach and combine with the other delicious foods on my picnic plate.
Or oh, what about when it drips thru your fork tines and onto your favorite shirt. Gah! Nothing like looking like a hot mess with a soiled shirt at the family picnic!
Nope, I want my baked beans glued to my fork, lol. This crockpot recipe produces the perfect baked bean consistency for me.
These bbq brown sugar baked beans end up with a rich, thick sauce that is both sweet and tangy. And I was very happy to see that even after 6 hours in the crockpot, they didn’t become like glue either.
The beans stayed perfectly in tact and didn’t become an overcooked pile of mush as well. We even ate these for the next two days and they still kept their shape and consistency when reheated in the microwave.
These baked beans became an immediate favorite recipe for my husband and I. They have amazing flavor that you just won’t get with any canned version. Plus they couldn’t get any easier to make.
Hubby has already made a request for another batch in two weeks for a trip to camp with the guys. It’s that good!
If you are a baked beans fan, these crockpot bbq brown sugar beans do not disappoint. Give them a try and let me know what you think.
