Homemade Baked Beans are so rich and hearty and just perfect for chilly days, but they take about 3 hours to cook on the stove and then bake in the oven. Using a pressure cooker speeds up the process tremendously, giving you the same delicious taste in less than half the time.
I prepared this using my stove top pressure cooker, but I wrote the instructions so you can use either a traditional stove top or an electric pressure cooker. If you are curious, these are the two pots I have and highly recommend them (affiliate links below! I may receive a commission for any purchases through these links at no cost to you):
You can’t pressure can in an electric pressure cooker, or at least you shouldn’t for safety reasons. So this baby is a must for me.
This one is getting the bulk of the day to day use. I can make stock (aka bone broth) in this and then can it in the stove top one.

Check the beans to see if they are done. If they are undercooked, cook at high pressure for another 5 minutes. Do a quick release of the pressure.
