I love barbecue, but not for the meat. I love the sauce, so I'm happy with it on anything. This is a simple recipe I created for beans, and it's awesome. The cumin and liquid smoke make it smoky - and the mushrooms make it meaty and hearty.
Serve this with corn on the cob, a green salad, and bread for a full meal.
Smoky Barbecued Beans
3 cups beans (any kind - I used red beans)
1 cup water
1 cup ketchup (I used my homemade ketchup - recipe linked)
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1 tablespoon spicy mustard
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
salt and pepper
Put all of the ingredients on a pot and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat, and simmer for 45 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
