I have enjoyed using this recipe for years. Although it is good as printed, I have made some changes to accommodate our desire for more meaty tomato flavor: Added 1/2 pound Sweet Italian sausage or ground beef, 1/2 Cup ketchup, increase mustard to 1 tsp, and added an additional can of pork and beans. So tasty.

While I loved the mix of beans, this recipe had way too much vinegar for me.

These beans had a fairly good flavor to them though I am not a lover of vinegar and forgot to adjust that to my taste and followed the recipe exactly; therefore, I didn't enjoy them that much. I also only have an 8 qt. crock pot and by the time my ribs were done on the grill, the beans were dried out. I'll try this again making the adjustment in both flavor and time.

My aunt made these for Christmas and my husband loved them so I made them for Mother's Day and everyone loved them. They are a little on the sweet side for me but I'm fussy that way. So quick to throw together.

This very simple slow cooker recipe makes the most delicious pork and beans. Make it for a crowd, or you will be eating leftovers for a week, but it is SO GOOD.

so easy & delicious! sweet, tangy & smoky. I've made it a couple of times now. People always ask for the recipie. It's usually better the next day, so you might want to make it ahead of time & reheat it.

These beans are WONDERFUL! Make the just exactly like the recipe tells you. I take these to church potlucks and they are scrapping the bottom of the pot for every last drop.

Made this recipe and took it to a church luncheon this passed Wednesday. Everyone thought it was wonderful. While it was cooking my son thought it was a good smelling dish, wishing some would come home for his taste test. (enough for one bowl did return for him)Would still be good without all that bacon.
