Brown onions and garlic in olive oil.
2 1/2 cup onions, diced
Cloves from 1 garlic bulb, smashed and minced
3 tablespoon olive oil
Add dried beans and water.
1-2 pound bag dry pinto beans (This is less than 5 cups of beans)
Water to cover more than double the volume of beans (I filled my pressure cooker to the 16 cup line)
Cook until beans are soft. (I cooked mine in a counter-top pressure cooker for 45 minutes.)
Mix cider vinegar, ketchup, smoked paprika and chili powder in a small saucepan. Simmer for 5 minutes.
1 cup cider vinegar
1 cup ketchup, no high fructose corn syrup
1 tablespoon smoked paprika
1 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
Add tomato paste, broth cubes, balsamic vinegar and molasses to saucepan and mix. Turn off heat.
3 tablespoon tomato paste
4 3/4 low sodium vegetable broth cubes
3 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup black strap molasses
1/4 cup flax meal
Drain most of the water from the cooked beans. (I kept some liquid as my beans will be served from a soup crock over a few hours and have the potential to dry out).
Stir in barbecue sauce.
