“Australian style baked beans with bacon bones. I felt totally alien until I realized they are just pork bones, which I use in economical Soul food cooking al the time. Do I smell barbecue? Yum. Recipe by Dixie Elliott. Thanks, Dixie!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C (350F). Heat oil in a large ovenproof casserole dish over medium heat.
  2. Add onions and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until tender. Add cloves, beans, tomatoes, molasses, sugar and bay leaves. Season with salt and pepper.
  3. Stir well, then bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Add bacon/pork bones and cover with lid or foil. Bake for 45 minutes, or until beans are tender and sauce is thick. Remove and discard bacon bones, and cloves (if you can find them).
  5. Cook bacon in a frying pan over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Serve beans topped with crispy bacon and on toast (or with barbecue), if desired.
