Stovetop Pork and Beans

It was just The Cajun and me for the 4th of July this year, so I kept things very simple. Smoked rib chops from Corky's, warmed on the grill, my classic potato salad, no husk microwave corn on the cob and these unbaked baked beans.

I call them that because it's essentially my baked beans recipe, without baking it, and using canned navy beans - sort of a semi-homemade, stovetop pork and beans, that I enjoy serving as a side dish anytime.

Honestly, after that tropical storm passed through here recently, and all the rain moved out, the heat and humidity have been on like a sauna down here. I wanted some baked beans for our meal, but was still tending to cleaning up things outside as I could, and it was just too hot to even think about turning on the stove.

I like mine with a little fire so I use jalapeno, hot sauce and Cajun seasoning. You can make your own adjustments far as that goes. No step by step pics this time - heck I barely remembered to get a picture of it on a plate! Which brings me to this.

I've come to the conclusion that I'm not really much of a "food blogger" y'all, so you might just see more single picture posts like this. Hey... I might actually manage to get more things posted!

You see, there's a whole generation of 30-somethings-rounding-the-corner of 40-something guys and gals, who apparently are the real deal, and, frankly, I ain't about to try and keep up with those young-uns at my age! Nope. I'm just a home cook. One who enjoys the process of cooking and I happen to have a corner on the internet where I share what I do. Most of y'all seem to enjoy that, and I get the loveliest notes from you. Thank you for that.

Others, usually one time passerbys, well, maybe not so much, like the snarky fella from Florida via Ohio, who just this very moment wrote me the nastiest note about my crab gumbo of all things. Bless his heart. You really can't hardly mess up a gumbo, and I know it's a good recipe, but some folks apparently think that if something doesn't turn out, it's automatically the fault of the recipe and not potentially something they did or didn't do. I know better, and thankfully folks like him are very few and far between.

So, if you enjoy my recipes, I'll be here doing what I have done since 2009, though maybe in a more abbreviated form some of the time.

If you're looking for all that other stuff, like speedy videos and fancy magazine styled photos shot with high dollar camera equipment and a wide variety of props (can't afford it), or somebody who posts weekly menu plans (rare for me to plan anything ahead, much less a whole week!), or coordinated meal plans (though I tried to participate in one of those meal plan Mondays open to "all bloggers," but promptly got banned by a popular southern blogger who hosts, for no other reason except that she does not like me) or coordinated roundup posts with a dozen other blogger's similar recipes (though I do appreciate those of y'all who do include my blog in yours!), or posting seven times or more in a week (too busy with grandkids and enjoying my "retirement!"), then... well, I guess I'm not the right gal.

But if you like good country cooking, mostly from scratch, mixed with a little chat and a few southern style hissy fits thrown in, well... I just might be that gal, so I'll keep on keeping on so long as y'all want me to.

This stovetop pork and beans recipe halves nicely, which, in fact, is what I did for us! Here's how to make it.

Recipe: Stovetop Pork and Beans - Unbaked Baked Beans

©From the Kitchen of Deep South Dish

Prep time: 10 min |Cook time: 30 min | Yield: About 10 servings

Ingredients
  • 6 slices bacon, chopped
  • 1-1/2 cups chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped jalapeno or green bell pepper
  • 6 (15 ounce) cans navy beans, drained but not rinsed
  • 1/2 cup chili sauce
  • 1/4 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt, or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly cracked black pepper, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, or to taste, optional
  • 1/4 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning (like Slap Ya Mama) {affil link}, or to taste, optional
Instructions

Cook bacon in a soup pot until fat is rendered, but not crisp. Add the onion and jalapeno or bell pepper and cook until softened. Stir in all of the remaining ingredients and bring to a boil. Reduce to low simmer, cover and let cook on the stovetop for 30 minutes, or to desired consistency, stirring occasionally. Do not bake. Taste and adjust seasonings. May halve for a smaller quantity.

Cook's Notes: I like Heinz Chili Sauce which is a tomato based product, containing tomato puree, onion, garlic and other seasonings. Plain ketchup or all barbecue sauce may also be substituted.
