I love this recipe. Very simple and really tasty. This will be added to our fall/winter meal line up.

I tried this with full-sized lima beans. Don't! Otherwise, it's a good recipe.

I used large butter beans because it's what I had on hand. I thought the recipe turned out great, but we like the taste of beans. I do agree that the sauce would be better with smaller beans. I omitted the salt while cooking the beans. Next time I might reduce the brown sugar by a tablespoon or so. Great to serve with spicy food to cut the heat.

This was wonderful and very easy! I didn't have Lima beans but had a 12 bean mix, so I used that. I used the seasoning packet and about 1/4 cup sugar free pancake syrup. I soaked the beans overnight, rinsed, and drained them, and then cooked the beans & onion in the crock pot on high for about 6-7 hours. Very, very good!

I followed the recipe exactly and really was not a fan. The sour cream just didn't seem to blend very well with the other flavors. My husband loved the dish though, so maybe it was just me.
