Darn Good Loaded Crockpot BBQ Beans

We love BBQ beans with steak, hamburger, chicken, pork or just about anything thing you toss on the grill. We actually could make a meal off of these beans!

I often get asked for the recipe so today I measured!

I usually cook them in the oven but today I decided to try my BBQ beans in the crockpot and they came out perfect.

When I cook these in the oven I don't fry the bacon, I just lay it on top of the beans and cook uncovered.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Darn Good Loaded Crockpot BBQ Beans

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry bacon; crumble and set aside.

    Brown ground beef in a skillet over medium heat, stirring until crumbly; drain. I added onion and bell pepper to the meat. NOTE: You can saute the onion and bell pepper in bacon grease if you prefer and then add to meat.
  2. Combine the cooked ground beef mixture with the remaining ingredients (except the bacon) in a crock-pot, mixing well. NOTE: I always spray the crock with PAM for easier cleanup.
  3. Cook on high for 2 to 2 1/2 hours (or on low for 4 to 5 hours). Add fried bacon last 30 minutes of cooking time.
  4. NOTE: If you don't have a crockpot, no problem, just cook over a low to medium heat on top or the stove. Or in the oven at 325 degrees for about 1 to 1 1/2 hours (uncovered).

    Serve with your favorite meat off the grill! Enjoy!
