Really liked this recipe. I doubled the bacon drippings, salt, and pepper. I used about 1/4 slice leftover country ham. Also added a dash of red pepper flakes and a tiny pinch of sugar.
Fantastic! I used bacon instead of ham. It was sooo good. I can't wait to have it again! Thank you.
Wow this was amazing. My first time eating fresh butter beans and i used this recipe. My husbands' first comment coming in the house was 'what is that smell, it's amazing,. Accolades are well deserved
Yup, these are GOOD! I really enjoy lima beans but, unfortunately, hadn't really had any real success in making them taste the way I like them. Now, I have no excuses not to put them on the menu more often. Thanks so much!
I put a twist on it by adding brown sugar and maple syrup so good and your kids will love it !!!!
In a word: Awesome. I halved the recipe since I didn't have 4 cups of lima beans. Didn't change anything else. I thought the salt in the ham would be overpowering, but it blended well with everything else and required no additional seasonings.
My husband is the only one in the family who LOVES lima beans so I cut the recipe in half and made this just for him. My ham was not overly salty so I did add a bit of chicken stock base instead of salt, and a generous dash of dried onion flakes. My husband was in heaven eating this. I was asked to please make this again.....he said 5 stars all the way.
By FAR the best lima beans I have ever tasted!! and it was soooo easy! Thank you.
DH may post his happy dance on You Tube! I used one 1-pound ham steak, which was about 1 1/2 cups after trimming. I cooked 2 slices of bacon to create fresh bacon drippings. Of course, the ham bone circle (minus fat) also went into the pot. DH loves limas, I am not a fan of limas, but these were fantastic! Next time I'm making double! DH is doing a happy dance, because I won't shy away from this recipe. It's so easy, he may start this for me to have an earlier dinner. This is going into my Top Favorites for 2009. Thank you for sharing! Made for I Recommend Tag based on mightytyro's review.
