Greek Stewed String Beans

My friend and I recently went to a delicious greek restaurant in NYC and has stewed string beans as a side dish. We devoured them. I knew I would have to recreate the dish for myself.

You will need

  • string beans
  • one large yellow onion
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • half jar of tomato sauce

Chop the onion and sauté in a pan with garlic.

Add the string beans to the pan after about 5 minutes.

Let the string beans get tender in the pot from the sauce and chicken stock mixture. Let them cook for about 10-15 minutes.

    I went to Greece last summer and this dish was a favorite. One place also added little chunks of eggplant. Thanks for the recipe!
