Baked beans are typically very sweet. These have sugar in them but are balanced by the bitter notes from the beer, the sour from the vinegar and the heat from the peppers.

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped (about 1 cup)
  • 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
  • 1 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1 bottle wheat beer
  • 1/2 cup malt vinegar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon red pepper jelly, optional
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • Two 14.5-ounce cans navy beans, drained

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Heat the oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook the garlic and onions until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the mustard seeds, paprika, salt, pepper and sage and stir until the spices become fragrant, about 20 seconds. 

Add the beer, and when the beer foam subsides, increase the heat to medium high. Stir in the vinegar, molasses, pepper jelly (if using), tomato paste and navy beans. When the sauce comes to a simmer, turn the heat to medium-low and keep at a very low simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes. 

Transfer to a 1 1/2-quart baking dish. Bake until the sauce thickens to coat the beans, yet is still very saucy, and the beans have absorbed some sauce, about 40 minutes.
