    SarasotaCook's Note:

    I actually really like Lima Beans. But, I realize I'm probably in the minority. Salt, pepper and butter is all I need, but this is a great recipe for them. I try to get a few of my "picky" friends to try new vegetables now and then, and this is one of them they really liked. Just a few ingredients takes ordinary frozen vegetables and makes them a great side dish. NOTE: Some think that butter beans are the same as lima beans - and they are - well similar. Both are lima beans, but they are 2 separate varieties. The baby lima beans are the small green ones; whereas butter beans are actually Fordhook, and they are larger and buttery in color (hence the name butter beans), and they do have a stronger flavor. You can buy both frozen, canned, and dried; but difficult to find fresh. For this dish I use frozen. It makes it a quick easy dish.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6-8


    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Bacon -- In a medium sauce pan, add the bacon and begin to saute on medium heat - don't try to rush it. After the bacon begins to crisp up, drain any excess drippings from the pan. I leave just enough drippings in the pan (1/2 teaspoon), to coat the onion and garlic.
    2. 2
      Onion and Garlic -- Add the onion, garlic, and red pepper flakes to the pan with the bacon and saute for 2-3 minutes.
    3. 3
      Beans -- Finish it up. Add the broth, beans and butter and simmer uncovered (medium heat) for 5 minutes or less until the beans are warm and the broth is reduced. Season with salt and pepper.
    4. 4
      Serve and enjoy!
