This is one of my favorite side dishes of all time! It works well in a slow cooker, too.



I love beans, and I love sweet and sour, so I knew this recipe would be good. After I mixed all of the items, I put them in a casserole dish and baked them for a little more than an hour. Thanks for sharing!



Absolutely delicious! I think this recipe definitely needs some well deserved attention. I ended up keeping them in the crock pot on low for 8 hours, because I didn't read ahead and planned on making it while I was at work. There was the perfect blend of sweet from the brown sugar and sour from the vinegar. I was a bit worried about the lima beans, but they ended up turning out as a creamy delicious bean. I paired it with coleslaw and hot dogs and the guys loved it. These will definitely be made again in our house! Thanks for sharing!
