Barbecued Lima Beans
Total TimePrep: 1-1/4 hours + standing Bake: 1 hour
Good flavor, but the 2013 description of "mush" is right! Cooked way too long before the oven-baking step. Next time I'll try the overnight soak method for the dry beans, rather than the 2-minute boil and then 1- hour standing. Might also shorten the simmer-with-onions step and check the doneness frequently. Makes such a large amount, wonder if the final result can be frozen in portions.
If you follow this recipe for cooking the beans, you will wind up with unrecognizable mush. Follow the directions on the package of beans instead. I substituted molasses for the the pancake syrup and the dish is still very sweet. Use a baking dish larger than 2 qts. if you don't want it to bubble over the sides. The end result is quite good.
These were soooo good! My boyfriend had thirds! I love the way the maple syrup brings a sweet taste to these beans.
OMG!!! These are the best. I never liked canned baked beans but did like homemade versions at potlucks. The recipe I have for baked beans is definately not low fat/cal. This one is great and even better tasting than the recipe I had been using. I used a reduced sugar pancake syrup and turkey bacon to reduce the fat/cal even more. This is my new go to recipe for baked beans. You do not miss the fat/cal with this one!!!.
I just made these baked barbequed lima beans for dinner and they came out fantastic! Everyone loved it. Thank You!
This is absolutely the best baked lima bean recipe! My mom always made this and it brings back enjoyable family get-togethers. As mom always made hers without a receipe, I was delighted to find this again. Jackie Morrone, Gastonia, NC
