Linda's Pressure Cooker Lima Beans

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by Secret Agent

I hate lima beans. They are grainy and gross. My husband LOVES them so one day I accidentally made lima beans that I absolutely adored. It was a timing mistake, but a delightful mistake! The beans were supposed to cook for 20 minutes but I set the timer for 60!

Like you I hate lima beans, but my father likes them. I had a bag of them in the freeze and found your recipe. It's great, but I had to add lots more water to them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the hocks and water into your pressure cooker and set for one hour on high pressure.
  2. When done, remove to a bowl while the rest of the ingredients cook.
  3. Add all the veggies and seasonings to the liquid in the pressure cooker and set to high pressure for one hour.
  4. Meanwhile, pick the meat out of the hocks and dice.
  5. When the time is up on the pressure cooker let it cool down naturally and then add the meat back to the cooker.
  6. Test a lima bean - they should be creamy with no grainy texture at all. If they are grainy turn the pressure cooker on for about 15 more minutes.
  7. Serve it up with Yankee corn bread!
  8. This recipe is for frozen lima beans, not dried or canned.
