Judy’s Baked Beans Recipe

My sister made the best baked beans with her pressure cooker. With or without the pressure cooker, these beans are d-e-l-i-c-i-o-u-s!

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.


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.
