Slow Cooker Baked Beans in a Rice Cooker (DRIED BEANS!!)

Here is our dinner tomorrow night.  One of the great things about it, is that you can start with dried beans and 4 hours later, you have a full meal.  My rice cooker has a slow cook setting.

Slow-Cooked Baked Beans in a Rice Cooker
Serves 6–8 as a side dish and 3-4 as a main meal.
  • 3/4 lb thick-cut bacon, diced
  • 1 lb kielbasa, sliced into coins 
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 lb dried pinto beans
  • 5 cups water
  • 3/4 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1/4 cup spicy mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp black pepper
  1. Cook the bacon over medium heat in a medium-size skillet. When the bacon begins to brown, add the onions and kielbasa and sauté until translucent.
  2. Place the beans into the slow cooker with the water, bacon, kielbasa and onion. Cover and set the slow cooker on high for 3 hours.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare the sauce. Combine the molasses, ketchup, mustard, salt, and pepper in a small bowl. Set aside.
  4. After 3 hours add the sauce and stir to combine. Cover and let the beans cook an additional hour.
