Category: Appetizers, Turkish, Side Dishes

 Ingredients List

  • 1 lb Green beans
  • 1 md Onion, chopped
  • 2 Chopped tomatoes
  • 1 ts Salt
  • 1/3 c Extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 1/2 ts Sugar
  • 1/2-2 c water


Trim beans & cut into 3 pieces, wash & drain.

Put onion & tomato into a heavy pan. Sprinkle with salt & rub in lightly
with fingers. Stir in the beans, olive oil & sugar, mix well. Cover & cook
for 15 minutes over medium heat. Stir occasionally. The beans will lose
their colour & soften. When all the moisture has been absorbed, stir-fry
the beans for 2 to 3 minutes. Add 1/2 cup water, cover & simmer for 40 to
50 minutes, till the beans are tender. Add more water if necessary, 1/2
cup at a time. When cooked, the dish should be very moist but not watery.
Serve cold as part of a buffet.
