  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 2 lbs Lean Ground Beef or Ground Turkey
  • 1/2 lb Smoky Bacon chopped* (optional)
  • 4 cloves Garlic pressed or finely minced
  • 1 cup Water
  • 1 -28 oz can Baked Beans such as Bush's®
  • 1 tsp Chili Powder
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Smoked Paprika or 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 1/2 tsp Pepper
  • 1 -15 oz Red Kidney Beans** drained and rinsed
  • 1 -15 oz can Black Beans** drained and rinsed
  • 1 -15 oz can Garbanzo Beans** drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup Ketchup
  • 1/3 cup Barbecue Sauce
  • 2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/4 cup Molasses
  • 1/3 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup


  • Turn on the Sauté setting. When hot, add the oil and onion. Sauté for a few minutes, then add the ground beef. Cook, breaking up the meat, until mostly done.
  • Add the garlic. Stir well.
  • Pour in the water and stir.
  • Pour in the baked beans. Do not stir.
  • Add the chili powder, garlic powder, smoked paprika (or liquid smoke), and pepper.
  • Add the remaining beans. Do not stir.
  • Add the ketchup, barbecue sauce, mustard, molasses, brown sugar, and maple syrup. Do not stir.
  • Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.
  • Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial, then the +/- button or dial to select 4 minutes. High Pressure. The pot will take several minutes to come to pressure.
  • When the cook cycle has finished, immediately turn the steam release knob to the Venting position to Quick Release the steam/pressure. Do this carefully, and watch to make sure no sauce spews out with the steam. If it does, close the knob and open again slowly.
  • When the pin in the lid drops back down, open the lid and stir the beans. They will be a little saucy, that's how they should be. They will thicken up a little as they cool down.


*Bacon is a tasty addition to this recipe. Just chop it up and cook it with the ground beef.
**Use different types of canned beans if you like.
