I love serving baked beans as a side dish, but I don’t always like having to bake them. Most recipes I have time some time to make. Today’s recipe is a version that is done strictly on the stovetop – no baking needed. These Stovetop BBQ Beans just simmer for a bit on the stovetop. They end up deliciously sweet and saucy.

This recipe includes pineapple tidbits. However it you want a less chucky texture just substitute it with crushed pineapple instead. I really love the flavor and sweetness you get from the pineapple in there.
