Navy Beans and Bacon

Navy Beans and Bacon

Navy Beans and Bacon have slow cooked smoky bacon flavor with tender beans and a touch of tomatoes; no bean soaking needed.

Chemist in the kitchen

Wishing I would’ve taken Chemistry in high school, the mad scientist slash chemist buried back then by fears of failure blossoms years later into the courage to conquer. What’s at stake in the kitchen but a few ingredients? The payoff is the possibility of success, discovery and even pioneering.

Navy Beans and BaconSoaked beans are a generational tradition on both sides of my family. I decided to put this method to the test. Conducting a side-by-side experiment, the left burner simmered a pot of 8-hour soaked beans and the right burner bubbled away with unsoaked ones. After waiting 1 1/2 hours to blind taste test them, I was pretty surprised to find the difference was null.

Not sure what all the soaking fuss has been all these years but grateful I needed a chemistry fix. Dad, were he still with us, would say, “that’s a revelation”. He especially loves navy beans slow simmered with ham hocks. This dish instantly brings him to mind. It’s for us kids who forget to submerge the beans the night before.

This dish could also be made by using 3-4 cans of beans. Take care to not over cook the beans with the bacon and tomatoes as they will already be cooked through.

Serve with burgers, Sloppy Joes, pork chops, baked chicken, steak or gilled hot dogs.

For Bean and Bacon Soup, add some of the bean liquid and chicken stock to taste and desired consistency.

    We had this with kielbasa and kale chips tonight. It was yummy and simple. I used dry great northern beans because I happen to have a lot of those right now.

      Kielbasa, yes that sounds like a very good pairing. Great Northern’s are close to Navy Beans, in fact, they are interchangeable in some markets.
