This is always a side dish with our meatloaf. It uses the same seasonings and compliments it quite well. It cooks at the same temperature and time. As with the meatloaf, I use a 2:1 ratio of 90%/80% lean ground beef. When making Beef Succotash and Meatloaf together, I use 3 lbs of ground beef total between the two recipies and split them accordingly. As you can see, we use sweet peas rather than lima beans for our succotash.
