Ingredients

  • 6 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, chopped
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup dark beer
  • 1 cup tomato sauce
  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons mild-flavored molasses
  • 6 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 (15-ounce) cans cannellini beans, drained

Directions

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Cook the pancetta in a heavy large oven-safe pot over medium heat until crisp, about 8 minutes. Add the onions and garlic, and saute until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Mix in the beer, tomato sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, molasses, mustard, salt, and pepper. Stir in the beans. Bring to a simmer. Transfer to the oven and bake, uncovered, until the bean mixture bubbles and thickens slightly, stirring occasionally, about 45 minutes.
