Bourbon Boston Baked Beans

Serves: 4

Boston beans are the ultimate comfort food, but we’ve given them a Kentucky twist by adding a good splash of bourbon into the mixture. The liquor adds a depth of flavor without overpowering the dish.

Ingredients:


1 tablespoon canola oil

1 white onion, finely chopped

3 garlic cloves, crushed

5 ½ oz. pancetta or smoked bacon, chopped

2 cloves

Pinch of sea salt

1 tablespoon tomato paste

2 x 14-oz. Cans navy beans, drained and rinsed

1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

1 teaspoon molasses

3 tablespoons Jim Beam® Bourbon

⅔ cup chicken stock

Preparation:


  1. Heat a large Dutch oven over high heat, then pour in the oil. Once the oil is hot, add the onion, garlic, bacon, cloves and salt and cook for 5 minutes, uncovered, until softened. Stir in the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute, then tip in the beans.

  2. In a small pitcher or bowl, stir together the mustard, molasses, bourbon, and stock to combine, then add this to the beans in the saucepan. Stir well, then bring the mixture to a simmer. Cover the saucepan with the lid, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 30 to 40 minutes. Fish out and discard the cloves, and serve immediately.
