Green Beans like Diane's mother used to make
Recipe By Beth
Serving Size: 6
2 cans green beans, cut
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons garlic, crushed
2 green onions, chopped small
2 slices ham, cut into julienne strips
1/2 tomato, chopped small
salt and pepper
Heat the oil and sauté the garlic and the onions until the garlic
starts to brown. Add the ham, stir well, and cook until the ham
starts to brown. Add the tomato, stir well, and continue cooking
until the tomato softens and wilts. Taste for needed salt and pepper.
Add the green beans and mix well, using a slotted spoon (this keeps
the beans from
breaking up). Cover the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes, then mix again.
Continue heating and mixing for up to 5 minutes. When the beans are
hot and shiny from being well coated with the sauce, use the slotted spoon
to transfer them to a serving dish or to dinner plates, leaving
behind any water accumulation in the bottom of the pan.
