No.178 Quick BBQ Beans

BBQ sides are often a side thought and when you are cooking a large piece of Brisket, that can be forgiven. Having a few quick sides that you can quickly bring together is essential whilst the meat is resting. In a few minutes you’ll have some great beans that taste better than something that has been dropped out of a tin and thrown in the microwave.

Serves: 6

Time: 15 Minutes

Difficulty: Straight Forward

One 400g can of Borlotti Beans

30g of Brown Sugar

75ml of Cider Vinegar

2 tablespoons of Tomato Purée

1 tablespoon of Black Treacle

1/2 teaspoon of Allspice

1 teaspoon of Smoked Paprika

1/2 teaspoon of Garlic Granules

1/2 teaspoon of Ground White Pepper


1. Add the tomato purée to a pot and cook for two minutes on a medium heat until slightly darker in colour.

2. Add the vinegar followed by the sugar, spices and black treacle. Whisk and bring to a simmer.

4. Reduce to thicken if needed. The mixture should cling to the back of a spoon.

5. Drain and add the beans to the sauce. Simmer for 5 minutes.

6. Salt to taste and serve.
