Bacon and Molasses Beans

Bacon and Molasses Beans


4 thick-cut bacon slices, thinly sliced crosswise
2 medium onions, finely chopped
1/2 green bell pepper, finely chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
4 (15 oz. cans) Great Northern beans, rinsed, drained
1/3 cup mild-flavored (light) molasses
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup purchased barbecue sauce
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

Cook bacon in heavy large pot over medium heat until fat is rendered
and bacon is crisp, about 5 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer
bacon to paper towels; drain. Discard all but 2 tablespoons drippings
in pot. Add onions, bell pepper and garlic to pot; saute until
vegetables are tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in bacon, beans and
remaining ingredients.

Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer uncovered until mixture thickens, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
