  • 3 bay leaves
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed

  • 3 tablespoons (packed) dark brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 2 tablespoons ketchup
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt plus more for seasoning
  • 5 slices thick-cut smoked bacon
  • 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar



Method:

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook bacon in heavy large pot until crisp, about 8 minutes. Add onions and garlic and saute until translucent, about 5 minutes.  Add beans and all remaining ingredients to pot. Bring to boil.
