 Baked Pork with Lima Beans "Hoirino me Gigantes"


A special Party dish that is easy to prepare so you have time to join in the festivities.


4-6 lb. Pork Leg, with bone 3 ribs celery, chopped
1 lb. dried lima beans 3 tbs. ground cumin
3 cups chopped tomatoes yellow mustard
1 large chopped onion salt and pepper
2 large chopped carrots 1/2 cup olive oil

Soak the lima beans overnight in water. Wash and dry the pork leg.  Cover the meat in yellow mustard, salt and pepper and cumin.  Cover well and refrigerate.

The Next Day:
In a large roasting pot, add the drained Lima beans, onions, tomatoes, carrots, celery and salt and pepper.  Toss all the vegetables together with the oil.  Set the meat in the center, and add enough water to cover the vegetables.   Cover the pan and set in an oven that has been preheated to 325F.

Bake until meat is tender and the beans are cooked, adding more water as needed.

Susie's note:  This winter dish is best served with a Lettuce Salad topped with Greek Vinaigrette.
