green beans for sunday dinner

So, are you liking these weekly recipes? Should I keep doing them?

Today, I'm going to share a recipe that seems so wrong, but is so good. Basically, you cook the living daylights out of green beans. I think we all have bad childhood memories of overcooked vegetables. It's something I swore not to do. But here I am today, cooking green beans for an hour! And they are absolutely delicious! Seriously-I never knew green beans could taste this rich. Try it, you'll like it.

Slow Cooked Green Beans
by Mark Bittman


1.5 pounds of green beans, washed and trimmed
1/4 cup olive oil
1 cup minced onion
1 cup diced, canned tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup water, plus more if needed
Salt & Pepper to taste


Combine all the ingredients in a large saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover and cook over medium-low heat for 1 hour. Check every 15 minutes and add a few tablespoons of water when necessary. When beans are tender and most of the water is absorbed, it's time to eat.
