Greek Mr. Manetta’s Butter Beans and Sausages ( Dry Lima Beans)

Recipe by Olha7397
READY IN: 1hr 25mins




  • In an oiled large, heavy frying pan, bake sausages in a 350°F oven, turning once, until lightly browned, 20 to 30 minutes. Remove and cut into 2-inch diagonal slices. Add enough oil to frying pan to make 3 tablespoons. Add onions and sauté until limp. Stir in remaining ingredients except ¼ cup of the parsley. Cover and simmer for about 45 minutes, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with remaining parsley. Makes 4 to 5 servings.
  • COOKED LIMAS. Put 1 ½ cups large dry lima beans, rinsed, into a large kettle. Add enough cold water to cover deeply. Heat to boiling; boil for 2 minutes; remove from heat, cover, and let stand for 1 hour. Drain, rinse, and cover with fresh salted water. Heat to boiling, then gently boil, uncovered, until beans are tender, about 45 minutes; drain.
  • SUGGESTED ACCOMPANIMENTS: Cooked chard dressed with oil, vinegar, salt, and pepper served at room temperature. Large bread sticks or crusty bread. Full fruity red table wine, as a hearty California Zinfandel. Chilled fresh orange segments.
