"This is a southern soul-food classic which is a snap to prepare. If okra turns you off, look elsewhere! The pickled pork gives it a great flavor so don't substitute regular ham." — Dena G.

water, or as needed
dried baby lima beans (butter beans)
pickled pork shoulder, cubed
salt and pepper to taste
1 (10 ounce) package
frozen cut okra
This recipe was amazing. We used "Wham"; which is vegetarian and fresh okra. added a bit of hickory powder. A great change from the usual tomatoes and okra. Thank you.
A friend asked for this for Thanksgiving and I wouldn't admit I had no idea how to make it. Luckily I found this recipe! It turned out great and he loved it. I did substitute smoked ham hocks for the pickeled pork shoulder though.
Maybe I did something wrong, but this was mushy and not much taste.
Plain comfort food! I didn't add the meat or butter. Because I used fresh not frozen okra, I might have added more than needed, but it worked! Thanks for the recipe!
This was really awful! I do not recommend trying it.
