Weekend Cooking: Beer-Baked White Beans

The beans are rustic but elegant, and absolutely delicious. Entertaining? Serve with roast chicken and a green salad. To get the recipe, read more.

Baked White Bean Recipe 2011-04-15 12:01:14

Ingredients

6 slices bacon, cut crosswise into 1-inch pieces
1 med yellow onion, diced small
4 garlic cloves, smashed and peeled
2 tbsp dijon mustard
1 tbsp honey
1 sprig rosemary
1 lb dried white beans (ex. cannellini) soaked overnight and drained
2 bottles Belgian-style white ale (12 oz). Blue Moon or Horgaarden
1 and 3/4 cups low-sodium chicken broth
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 tbsp cider vinegar

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. In a large dutch oven or heavy pot with tight-fitting lid, cook bacon over medium until fat is rendered and bacon is crisp and browned, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.
  3. With slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towels to drain. Increase heat to medium-high heat; add onion and garlic to pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is translucent, 4 minutes.
  4. Add mustard and honey, cook 1 minute. Add rosemary, beans, beer and broth; season with salt and pepper. Bring mixture to a boil; cover and transfer to oven.
  5. Bake until beans are tender and most of the liquid is absorbed, about 2 hours. Season to taste with vinegar, salt and pepper.
  6. To store, let beans cool, then refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 3 days. To serve, stir in reserved cooked bacon.

Serves 6.

The beer's name is misspelled, it's actually Hoegaarden. Just in case people have never heard of in. In which case they should buy one more bottle to drink, because it's delicious! :)

White beans and bacon are a match made in heaven. And I am not saying this because I love bacon, which I don't eat a lot of, but the two ingredients complement each other so well. I tend to eat cannellini beans during the warmer weather (I have no clue why) and it has that smokiness and creaminess that really highlights the best of bacon.
