OhMyGod! This was amazing!
This recipe for No-Beans Baked Beans came up on my feed on Facebook from PaleoPot yesterday. I couldn’t wait to try it. Plus, I’ve been itching to use the slow cooker for a while now but couldn’t figure out anything ‘summery’ to make. This was perfect.
As per usual, I wasn’t totally exact. It took me a while to figure out that ‘salt pork’ in the recipe was bacon. And my measurements were a li’l off. I used 200grams of cropped bacon and 250g of chicken breast. I grabbed the chicken breast thinly sliced fillets out of the freezer, defrosted it for, oh, about 10 minutes, then cut the frozen block of chicken up in itty bitty strips. They were practically bean-sized. This would have been impossible with non-frozen chicken, so I’m quite pleased with my ingenuity. Obviously.
As for other deviations from the original recipe – I didn’t use honey (staying away from all sweetness for a while…), the ‘small can of tomato paste’ – well, I used a very large squeeze from a tube of tomato puree. Close enough, right?
Also – this was spicy hot. I really need to find a mild chilli powder one day….
Anyway. Absolutely gobsmacking awesome recipe. This is a definite keeper. THANK YOU to PaleoPot for the amazing recipe!
(Oh – and I made some of that there Tandoori Turkey again on the bbq. I knew that’d be good. It was.)
