Seaside BBQ Baked Butter Beans

There are other names for just about everything in the food world, and butter beans is the other name for lima beans.  They are one of the most popular ingredients for Southern cuisine.  These "dinosaur" beans have a distinct rich, creamy taste that absorbs the flavor of whatever spices are incorporated into the dish.

This recipe is a nice change from the norm.  If you like butter beans, you will love this recipe!  They are tangy and sweet with a nice peppery bite.  Enjoy!

Seaside BBQ Baked Butter Beans

  • 2 large cans Goya Butter Beans, reserving liquid
  • 3/4 cup bean liquid
  • 8 strips bacon, diced 1/2" pieces
  • 1/4 cup Molasses
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. yellow mustard
  • 1/2 cup ketchup
  • 1 cup onion chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3/4 cup celery, minced
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

Preheat oven to 275 degrees F.  In a 4 quart saucepan, fry bacon until crisp.  Remove bacon and reserve.  In the same pan with the bacon drippings, add onion, garlic and celery.  Cook until onion is translucent.  Add all remaining ingredients and mix thoroughly.  Bring to a boil.  Transfer to greased or buttered 4 qt. baking dish.  Bake uncovered for 1-1/2 hours.
