Slow Cooker Maple Bacon Beer Baked Beans

Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 10 hrs
Total Time: 10 hrs 10mins


Servings : 6


  • ½ lbs pinto beans
  • ½ lbs navy beans
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 12 ounces smoked porter or stout beer
  • ½ lbs bacon, chopped
  • 1 sweet white onion, chopped
  • 3 tbs molasses
  • ¼ cup real maple syrup
  • 3 tbs balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  • 1 tsp mustard powder
  • 1 ½ cups hot water


  1. Add the beans and baking soda to a large pot (the baking soda softens the beans and allows them to soak more efficiently). Cover with about 2 inches of water.
  2. Bring to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat, allow to soak for on hour. Drain.
  4. Add the beans and remaining ingredients to a slow cooker.
  5. Cook on high for 10 hours. Salt and pepper to taste.


Cooking the bacon and caramelizing the onions in the bacon fat before adding it all to the slow cooker will give you a deeper flavor, if you have the time.
