Butter Beans

I had NEVER heard of "butter beans" until I moved down to South Ga but now they are a staple in our home!


  • Pressure cooker
  • 1 bag of frozen baby lima beans
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 1 packet of Goya Ham Flavored Concentrate (found in the "ethnic food section" at the grocery store)

  1. Put frozen limas in bottom of pressure cooker
  2. Put water in pressure cooker and fill to just barely above the peas but so they are covered
  3. Sprinkle with salt and pepper
  4. Add packet of seasoning
  5. Lock pressure cooker lid and put on stove top on medium-high heat until whistles
  6. Once it whistles turn heat down to one setting below medium and let cook for 9 minutes
  7. Remove from heat and wait for lid to unlock to serve
They are great re-heated too! We eat them for dinner one night then have them as left overs another night later in the week!

This same recipe also works great for ford-hooks and queen zipper peas as well!

Im am so glad to see you call them butter beans! My family is from North Carolina and that's what we call them. Ryan insists they're lima beans and we've been teasing each other about it for almost 20 years. My girls LOVE them!
