One should never run out of options when it comes to preparing sugar beans. Growing up, I learnt that what makes or breaks your final sugar bean cooked product is your “stew”/ sauce. If you nail this then you’re guaranteed to enjoyed your beans. Here’s just one of the ways I enjoy having my beans.

  • Casserole/ Oven proof dish
  • Wooden spoon
  • Measuring jug

  1. Get your ingredients together. These include 500 g dried sugar beans; 600 ml beef stock; 100 ml Worcestershire sauce; 1 tsp salt; 3 garlic cloves; 120 ml BBQ sauce; 120 ml tomato sauce; 2 tbsp Dijon mustard and 3 tbsp granulated sugar.
  2. Put the sugar beans in your pot. Add the beef stock, garlic , 50 ml Worcestershire sauce and salt. Bring to the boil then reduce heat to a gentle simmer until the beans are tender.
  3. When the sugar beans are cooked through and tender, add the rest of the ingredients, i.e. 120 ml BBQ sauce; 120 ml tomato sauce; 2 tbsp Dijon mustard; 50 ml Worcestershire sauce and 3 tbsp granulated sugar. save for the borewors. Give a gentle mix, ensuring that everything is well combined.
