Course Side Dish
1teaspoon dried mustard
Add dried beans and 6 cups of water to Instant Pot and cook for 20 minutes on manual (high pressure) then allow pressure to naturally release. Drain beans then set aside.
Set Instant Pot to saute and add allow to preheat then add bacon and cook for 4-5 minutes until crispy. Add the chopped onion and pepper and cook for 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened then add the garlic and cook another 30-45 seconds. Set the Instant Pot to OFF. Add the tomato paste and cook for 1 minute stirring frequently.
Stir in the remaining 1 cup of water, barbecue sauce, ketchup, brown sugar, molasses, and dried mustard. When serving with barbecue I also like to add in 2 teaspoons of my dry rub but that is optional. Stir until well combined then add the beans back to the pot.
Cover and seal the Instant Pot then cook for 15 minutes on manual (high pressure) then allow pressure to naturally release.
