Really Good Recipe, I made these about 5 times now using lima or great northern beans. I buy a ham slice, cut it into small cubes and throw it in the pot when I start the beans. I Usually cook 10 minutes longer than the recipe states we like ours soft. Other than that I follow the recipe. Thanks for the Great recipe. Just like mom used to make.
YUM! Now I know the secret of making good beans. Mine came out a little mushy (but who cares?), so I might cook them just a tad less next time. They are really to die for. My husband was in heaven when he came back for seconds of these beans, cornbread and collard greens during his football game -- and he swears he doesn't like collard greens! Combined with these beans and cornbread, I believe he's been! Thanks so much for sharing. I might have to make another pot today.
5 stars for simplicity and taste. I am new to pressure cooking and was looking for a few good recipes. I had this in mind to make, until realizing I had not pulled out my navy beans to soak the night before. I already had all the other ingredients in the cooker, so figured I would throw in the beans, no soaking, and see what happened. Turned out great! I needed to cook mine about 5 minutes longer than directed here, but talk about a filling , no fuss recipe. Added some extra garlic and a about a tsp and half salt, cooked with a hamhock. Made with homemade cornbread and canned collards. Topped with hot sauce. DH and DS gobbled it up with no complaints. Thanks!
Great recipe, made exactly as written. Down home yum!
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! My beans soup beans turned out just fabulous :-) This recipe will be used over and over. I followed the directions with no changes to the recipe. Thanks Sccuddlers for a real winner here!
My mom use to make this all the time. I find a vinegary hot sauce goes great on these beans.
Oh My, These were wonderful. I have never been able to make soup beans to my husbands taste (like Mom made). He loved the smell of them. Cut the recipe down some and used 3 pieces of bacon ends that I keep frozen in individual snack backs for recipes like this. Delicious!!!
Excellent! I used crock pot method with pork butt and a little extra butter and it was a hit!
with cornbread & collards, this is a staple meal! Balanced protein, cholesterol-sopping lectins, fiber - and best of all - flavor! That's just good eating here in the Old North State!! Thanks for posting classic and oft taken-for granted "Authentic" Southern Cooking!
Ain't nothin' like a big ol' pot of soup beans on a cold day! I grew up eating these(and I live in the midwest) and, other than the garlic clove, this is just how I make mine(I do usually add more bacon grease, but....pork fat RULES!). Slop some of these babies over a piece of cornbread and/or fried taters, and you got somethin' really gooooood! Thanks for posting this simple, yummy recipe so true to this part of the country!
