  • Put the beans in a large bowl, fill the bowl with cold water, and soak overnight; the next day, rinse and drain the beans. Put the beans in a 3-quart pot and cover them by 2 inches with cold water. Bring up to a boil, then turn heat down slightly and boil (covered with the lid ajar) until soft but not mushy, about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Preheat the oven to 350F.
  • Add enough water to the beans so they’re just barely covered (if necessary). Stir in all remaining ingredients.
  • Bake (covered) for 1 hour, stirring once halfway through.
  • Turn the oven down to 300F.
  • Bake (uncovered) until the sauce is thickened, about 30 minutes (they will thicken more on standing).


  • Use vegan Worcestershire sauce to keep this recipe vegan.
  • If you don’t have hickory smoked sea salt, you can use 3/4 teaspoon smoked paprika to add smoky flavor and increase the amount of coarse kosher salt to taste.
