These are a comfort food classic. They make a great side to my BBQ Baked Chicken and Braised Red Cabbage. They can also simply be served with rice for an easy meal.
-1 can baked beans or pork and beans
-1/2 onion, diced small
-3-4 garlic cloves, minced
-1/4 cup spicy tomato sauce (or ketchup plus 3/4 tsp hot pepper paste, I prefer the spicy tomato sauce!)
-1/4 cup brown sugar
-2 Tbls soy sauce (low sodium preferred)
-2-3 Tbls rice wine (or beer)
-1/4 tsp pepper
-2 Tbls bacon bits (optional)
1) Saute the onions in a little oil (1 tsp) for about 2-3 minutes.
2) Add the remaining ingredients to the pot and let simmer for about 5-7 minutes.
3) Pour the beans into a baking dish and bake at 230 degrees Celsius for 30-45 minutes until the beans are thick.
