- 3 Tablespoons molasses
- 1 Tablespoon Worcester sauce

- Add the rest of the ingredients to the wok and heat.
- Add this sauce to the pot with the onion and pork.
- If necessary add more water to just cover.
- Bring to the boil and simmer for 10 minutes with the lid on.
- Do not allow steam to escape before putting into your Heylo bag.
- This helps to maintain the temperature in the air space.
- Put the pot with the beans in into the Heylo bag and seal well.
- Push the beads up to cover all surfaces of the pot.
- Leave in the Heylo bag for 2 hours.
- Serve with a dollop of sour cream/ yoghurt and some crusty bread. Enjoy.
- To use dried beans. Soak beans 8 hours or overnight in plenty of water. Wash the soaked beans and bring to the boil in fresh water. Simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Put securely into a Heylo bag. Leave all night or up to 5 hours.
- For this recipe, after soaking and cooking the dried beans , drain the cooked beans and then proceed as in the recipe above.Replace the canned beans with your precooked dried beans.
- Leave the pork spare ribs out and this is a lovely vegetarian dish. See the vegetarian section of recipes.
- 1 cup of dried beans will give you just over 2 cups of cooked beans.
