- Bacon - Onion - Garlic - Water - BBQ sauce - Apple cider vinegar - Brown sugar - Smoked paprika - Dry mustard powder - Red pepper flakes - Kidney beans

Step 1

Set Instant Pot to sauté, add chopped bacon, and cook until the bacon is browned and crispy. Use a slotted spoon to remove the bacon, leaving the grease in the insert.

Step 2

Add the chopped onion to the bacon grease and cook for about 3 minutes, until translucent. Then add garlic and cook for an additional minute, making sure it doesn't burn.

Step 3

Pour the water into the Instant Pot and gently scrape the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to remove any browned bits and prevent a burn notice.

Step 4

Add BBQ sauce, apple cider vinegar, brown sugar, smoked paprika, mustard powder, red pepper flakes (if using), beans and cooked bacon. Stir to combine.
