Kielbasa with Sweet Onions & Lima Beans

Sorry for the long absence, but I have a good excuse or three. I was in Galveston for a few days attending a wedding (congratulations Travis and Keri!). I’ve also been having some medical issues that led to some minor surgery this past week. Nothing too serious, but it’s kept me out of the kitchen

  • 1 Kielbasa sausage large (scored every 1/2")
  • 1 onion large sliced
  • 3/4 cups lima beans shelled fresh (fresh fava beans would work too, but don't use canned ones)
  • 1 tablespoon mustard whole grain
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • to taste salt pepper and


  1. Preheat a broiler pan in the oven with the rack in the top position (closest to the heating element). You'll want to put the sausage in the oven about midway through the onions as it should only take a few minutes to brown. Place the Kielbasa on the preheated broiler pan and broil until golden brown, then flip and brown the other side.
  2. Heat a saute pan over medium heat and add the oil. Put the onions in and saute until they are turning brown at the edges and soft. Add the lima beans, Zywiec, mustard and honey. Salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Serve together with some crusty toasted bread. I used a whole wheat caraway rye bread.
