Ingredients Weight Measure
TABASCO® brand Crushed Red Pepper --- 1 Tbsp. (1.5% use)
Navy beans---2 cups
Bacon1/2 lb.---
Onion, finely diced---2 each
Molasses---3 Tbsp.
Salt---2 tsp.
Black pepper, ground---1/4 tsp.
Dry mustard---1/4 tsp.
Ketchup---1/2 cup
Worcestershire sauce---1 Tbsp.
Brown sugar---1/4 cup


Soak beans overnight in cold water.

Simmer beans in the same water until tender, approximately 1 to 2 hours. Drain and reserve the liquid.

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Arrange beans in a 2-quart casserole dish by placing a portion of the beans in the bottom of the dish and layering them with bacon and onion.

In a saucepan, combine molasses, salt, pepper, dry mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, TABASCO® Crushed Red Pepper and brown sugar. Bring the mixture to a boil and pour over beans. Pour in just enough of the reserved bean water to cover the beans. Cover the dish with a lid or aluminum foil.

Bake for 3 to 4 hours in the preheated oven, until beans are tender. Remove the lid about halfway through cooking, and add more liquid if necessary to prevent beans from getting too dry.
