Everyone needs a good slow cooker potluck recipe! This one might just do the trick. It’s hearty, saucy and flavorful. I love the way the pineapple’s tangy flavour matches with the sweet bold flavour of the hearty barbeque sauce.
This one is actually extra special because my dear brother and sister-in-law brought it to Christmas dinner! It was a good way to change things up from the standard fare and honestly it was a big hit!
It’s tasty, quick, easy and is full of heart healthy beans! Note that this recipe is quite high in sodium and uses a lot of pre-packaged ingredients. However if it’s not going to be a weekly menu item, don’t worry about it too much!
2×14 ounce cans of beans in tomato sauce or ordinary navy beans without sauce
1 14 oz can of kidney beans
3 tbsp onion flakes (or you could use 1/2 of a real onion)
1/2 cup hickory smoke flavour BBQ sauce (ensure that it is gluten free)
14 oz can of crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 – 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1 1/2 tsp prepared mustard
Mix ingredients together in a slow cooker. Heat on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. Makes 6 1/2 cups, enough for about 10-12 servings.
