Barbecued Lima Beans Recipe

Description:  This is a very old fashioned recipe. You will see it even calls for a little bacon fat. Its really for flavor. If you are health conscious, brown the onion and garlic in vegetable oil instead. Either way, it is a tasty recipe.

Serves: 6


  • 2 cups fresh  or dry lima beans (if dry beans, soak for several hours to soften)

  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 onion, sliced

  • 1 clove garlic, minced

  • 2 Tablespoons bacon fat

  • 2 Tablespoons prepared mustard

  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 1 teaspoon oregano

  • 1 (10 1/2 oz) can tomato soup

  • 1/3 cup vinegar

Preparation Directions:

  1. Take 1/2 of the bacon and cube it.

  2. Cook beans and cubed bacon in water with 1 teaspoon of salt.

  3. Cook until the beans are tender.

  4. Drain, reserving 1 1/2 cups of liquid. Set beans aside.

  5. Brown onion and garlic in bacon fat.

  6. Add prepared mustard, Worcestershire sauce, oregano, tomato soup, vinegar and 1 1/2 cups of liquid.

  7. Simmer for 15 minutes.

  8. In a casserole dish, alternate layers of beans and sauce.

  9. Cover with remaining strips of bacon.

  10. Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
