Beans and barbeque sauce go together like apple pie and ice cream. This simple and flavorful recipe for Crockpot BBQ pinto beans is perfect as a side dish for a juicy grilled steak. To complete this classic southern meal, make some quick and easy cornbread to scoop up all of the rich flavors in the sauce.


  • 1 lb. dried pinto beans
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 18 oz. bottle barbecue sauce
  • 1/4 cup molasses or honey
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper

Steps to Make It

  1. Sort beans, rinse and drain. Cover with water and let stand, covered, overnight.

  2. The next morning, drain the beans again and rinse them.

  3. Combine beans, 3 cups water, onion, barbecue sauce, molasses, and pepper in 4-quart crockpot.

  4. Cover crockpot and cook on low for 8 to 9 hours or until beans are tender. If you have a newer crockpot that cooks hotter, check at 7 hours and stir the beans once at the halfway point.
