Judy’s Baked Beans Recipe

My sister made the best baked beans recipe with her pressure cooker. It would work great in the Instant Pot. With or without the pressure cooker, these beans are d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

Pressure Cooker Baked Beans

By author Jammin' Judy via Dish Ditty Recipes


  • 2 cups Dried Beans
  • 1/3lb Salt Pork (diced)
  • 3 tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 3 tablespoons Molasses
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Mustard
  • 2 tablespoons Ketchup
  • 1/2-1 cup Shallots (diced)


To make the beans spicier, you can add hot mustard, hot sauce or white pepper. My preference would be white pepper.


Step 1
Soak beans overnight. Drain.
Step 2
Heat pressure cooker and sear diced salt pork. Add remaining ingredients and add just enough water to cover beans. Place cover on cooker. Pressure cook for 50 minutes a 3 3/4 lbs of pressure or 45 minutes at 15 lbs of pressure. Reduce pressure with cool water.
Step 3
Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. You may need to add more mustard or salt.
Step 4
If brown crust on beans is desired, place in a casserole in a hot oven or under a broiler for a few minutes.

If I was a brave person, that would be my go to way to make beans. I still have the scene from Cheers where the pressure cooker exploded in my mind. I know that proper pressure cooker usage is safe, but I just see me not being patient and messing it up.

So, my sister, Jammin’ Judy, is now dubbed the pressure cooker queen!

I think these beans would work great in the oven as well, but instead of 45-50 minutes, it would probably be 2-3 hours and require a little more water.
