This is my dad's recipe for green beans. I don't know how authentically Lebanese it is, but he said it was, and this is the way he always fixed them

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Brown lamb and bones in hot oil in skillet.
  2. Add onions and saute until lightly browned.
  3. Add tomatoes, salt, pepper and allspice, mix well, and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a large saucepan, cover, and cook slowly for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  5. Add beans and hot water just to cover, and cook, covered, for about 30 minutes.
  6. Taste broth, and add more salt and pepper if needed.
  7. Continue cooking until beans are done.
  8. Uncover, and let liquid cook down if you prefer a less juicy dish.
  9. Tastes best if prepared a day ahead and reheated for serving.
  10. Pick out and discard bones before serving.

Awesome! I used canned diced tomatoes in place of fresh and used less water.
