Big Weather's Big Recipe: Crockpot Sah-Weet Beans
Check out Big Weather's Big Recipe for some sweet beans made in a Crockpot.

RALEIGH, N.C. (WTVD) -- It's been a while since I've done a crockpot recipe, so let's make one today. The recipe was given to my by a friend from church who did a bible study with my wife and me. She said every time she made it, someone would ask for the recipe. And she said I could share it! Let's make Sarah's SahWeet Bean Soup.


1 pound of pork sausage (I used mild Italian)

1 pack of pre-cooked bacon, chopped (10 slices)

1/2 cup of chopped onion

4 cans of beans (I used Navy because they were on sale)

3/4 cup of brown sugar

1/2 cup of ketchup

2 t of mustard

3 t of apple cider vinegar


1. Brown sausage and drain. Transfer to crockpot.

2. Add all the other ingredients (do not drain beans) and mix.

3. Let it cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.

4. As Ron Popeil so famously said, set it and forget it!

I served mine with some cornbread (Beans and Cornbread, yum!). You could add hot sauce to your taste or even some red pepper flakes to kick up the spices; I did not. And if you wanted to skip the sausage and bacon or use plant-based meats, it could easily be a vegetarian dish.

Good luck and good eating!
