Loaded Barbecue Pork and Beans

Makes: 6 servings
Prep 25 mins Grill 30 mins
Loaded Barbecue Pork and Beans
  • 1 18  ounce bottle (about 2 cups)  barbecue sauce
  • 1/4  cup  bourbon or apple juice
  • 2  tablespoons  soy sauce
  • 2  tablespoons  yellow mustard
  • 1  tablespoon  Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 15  ounce package  refrigerated cooked pork roast au jus
  • 3 15  ounce cans  butter beans and/or cannellini beans (white kidney beans), rinsed and drained
  • 3/4  cup  chopped red sweet pepper (1 medium)
  • 5  slices  bacon, crisp-cooked, drained, and crumbled
  • 1  fresh jalapeno chile pepper, seeded and finely chopped*
  • 3  slices  Texas toast
  • 2  tablespoons  butter, softened
  • 4  1/2-inch slices  red onion

1. Grease a 9 3/8x9 3/8x2 3/8-inch disposable foil pan (poultry pan); set aside. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine barbecue sauce, bourbon, soy sauce, mustard, and Worcestershire sauce. Cook and stir until boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes.

2. Meanwhile, prepare pork roast according to package directions. Using two forks, pull meat apart into shreds (you should have about 1 1/3 cups); reserve cooking liquid (you should have about 2/3 cup). In the prepared foil pan combine sauce, shredded meat, beans, sweet pepper, bacon, and jalapeno pepper. Stir in the reserved cooking liquid. Spread both sides of Texas toast with butter; set aside.

3. For a charcoal or gas grill, place foil pan on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium heat, using a baking sheet to help transfer the pan if necessary for stability. Grill about 30 minutes or until bubbly. Add onion slices to the grill rack for the last 8 to 10 minutes and Texas toast for the last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling or until golden grill marks appear, turning once halfway through grilling.

4. Separate onion slices into rings. Cut toast slices in half diagonally. Serve bean mixture with onion and toast.

From the Test Kitchen*Tip:
  • Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves.
