Next, turn the Instant Pot to “sauté” mode. Add the bacon to the Instant Pot and sauté for 2-3 minutes until the bacon begins to crisp. Then, add in the onions and saute until golden in color (about 5 minutes).
Deglaze the pot with the apple juice. Turn the Instant Pot off, and continue to mix the juice to break up any brown bits on the bottom of the pot.
Stir in the brown sugar, tomato sauce, ground mustard, season salt, smoked paprika, and liquid smoke. Turn the Instant Pot back on to "SAUTE" mode. Mixing until the sauce comes to a boil. Then turn the Instant Pot back off.
Mix well, then carefully add the drained beans into the pot. Stir, the beans until all the sauce has coated them. Keep the Instant Pot on "warm" mode. Let the beans rest for at least a half hour or until ready to serve.
