Instant Pot Butter Beans and Country Ham is my recipe of the day with the blogging group From Our Dinner Table. Each week we post new and delicious recipes on changing topics.

This week we are sharing recipes for one pot meals.

Instant Pot Butter Beans and Country Ham

Our weather  is  finally cooling down,   at least for  the moment. With  the  onset of  autumn weather I  usually get hungry for a ham and beans dinner, often with corn bread or buttermilk  biscuits.

These butter beans are made from  dried baby limas. Cooked with the salted country ham they are quite delicious. You  should be able to locate country ham at farm markets that also sell meat. The type I  used had bits  and pieces rather than the whole steak.  So it should be reasonably priced.

I serve this as I would stew-  it has some vegetables in it from the mirepoix, but feel  free to  add other  veggies to your meal if you like. And like soup beans, this is  also  yummy topped with a little bit of chow chow.
