Recipe: Torowep Baked Beans

For Summer Barbecues & Winter Feasts

A favorite side at the Connecticut restaurant Harry’s Texas Barbecue & Arizona Grill, this recipe comes courtesy of NIBBLE reader Harry Falber. Harry advises to prepare in advance: it tastes better after the flavors mix for two days.

Torowep is a canyon within the Grand Canyon system, where Harry enjoys hiking with his family.


  • 1 #10 can of pinto beans or vegetarian beans (or the raw and soaked equivalent)
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce (Harry’s recipe)
  • 1/2 cup diced onions
  • 1/2 cup green peppers
  • 4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1/4 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 tablespoon oregano
  • 2 cups of smoked pork bits, meat bits, sausage or chicken bits
    (use smoked chicken if you don’t eat beef and pork)
  • 5-6 cherry tomatoes

Place all ingredients in a pan in a smoker for one hour; if you don’t have a smoker, add 3 tablespoons of liquid smoke and place in the oven at 325°F.

Serves 8.

In addition to serving beans as a side with barbecue or a regular roast chicken, burger or steak, many people enjoy baked beans with eggs in the morning or as a main event on toast. And of course, a favorite kids’ comfort food is big chunks of franks mixed in with their beans. Adults are entitled, too.
