I will do a catch up post next time, but for now....
Another copycat recipe...
I've never actually had the beans in the restaurant, but the recipe seemed yummy so I gave it a try. They were really REALLY yummy. The original recipe called for twice as much chili powder as I put below, so it's up to you if you want to add more. They were plenty spice with half as much, in my opinion.
Hard Rock Cafe BBQ Beans
Two 15 oz cans pinto beans, one drained, 1 with liquid
2 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1/2 cup ketchup
1/3 cup white vinegar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons diced onions(I used dry)
1 teaspoon yellow mustard
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup crumbled cooked bacon for serving(I used fake bacon bits)
Preheat oven to 350.
Pour pinto beans into a 2 quart casserole dish. Dissolve cornstarch in the 2 tablespoons of water and stir until dissolved. Add to beans and stir.
Add the remaining ingredients, except bacon, stir to combine. Cover. Baked for 90 minutes, stirring every 30. Cook for 5 to 10 before serving. Top with bacon.
