Smokey, spicy, and delicious, Dr Pepper Baked Beans Recipe has the best flavor and consistency. They are the perfect side dish for any barbecue. Great for potlucks, picnics, and tailgating!
I’m ‘kind of’ dedicating the whole month of June to heartier recipes for Father’s Day. However, they’re still recipes like these baked beans that everyone will love.
DR PEPPER BAKED BEANS RECIPE
With just a few minutes of prep, you can have these amazing baked beans on your table. They go with any barbecue main dish and you can bake or cook them in a slow cooker.
Most of the ingredients are standard for baked beans except for Dr. Pepper soda. Dr. Pepper adds a little sweetness as well as flavor to the beans. Some baked bean recipes call for molasses, but Dr. Pepper serves the same purpose as molasses does. You can also sub Coca-cola.
DR PEPPER BAKED BEANS RECIPE INGREDIENTS
- Pork & Beans. Any brand will work.
- Bacon. Your favorite.
- Onion. Sweet or white.
- Bell pepper. I’m not a fan of green bell peppers even though I used one here. You can use any color.
- Brown sugar. Or coconut sugar.
- BBQ sauce. I adore Sweet Baby Ray’s Original BBQ Sauce but you can use your favorite.
- Yellow mustard. Yep, classic yellow mustard.
- Worcestershire sauce. Like this.
- Dr. Pepper. Not diet.
- Salt and pepper.
- Parsley or green onion.
You can bake these in the oven or cook them on the stovetop or slow cooker.
The length of time you cook them depends on how you like your beans. If you like thicker, stickier beans leave it in 2 or more hours for baking. If you like saucier beans then 1 ½ hour might be more to your liking. Same with other methods of cooking long equals thicker, shorter equals saucier.
