Beans, Baked Boston-Style (M, TNT)
Source: Self
Serves: 8 or more

1 16-oz. bag navy beans
1 onion
2 lb. flanken or any kind of fatty beef you want
3 oz. molasses
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup ketchup
Dry mustard or mustard seeds

First soak beans in water overnight; discard water next morning.

Put soaked beans in ovenproof pot, add onion, water to a little more than cover, beef, salt to taste, pepper, dry mustard or mustard seeds.

Cook on top of stove until meat is tender, skimming as you go along. Then add molasses, brown sugar, and ketchup.

Set oven temperature to 325°F and cover pot. Cook for several hours until beans are tender. Check for taste and season accordingly. You may add little water if it gets too dry or if too watery take cover off. After cooking for about 3 hours, take cover off so beans can brown.

Poster's Notes:
I make baked beans all the time; however I don't follow any recipe. It is all by taste. I will just tell you what I have been taught by my mother. This recipe is not an exact science but you should be able to pick up the taste and season how you want the flavor to be. My family loves the baked beans!

Always difficult to give family recipes when none are really written down and just passed down from generations! Good luck!
