DIRECTIONS

  • In a 6-quart pot, brown beef with garlic in olive oil.
  • Add onion and saute for a couple of minutes.
  • Add beef broth. Cover and simmer for 1/2 hour or until beef can be cut with a spoon.
  • Add green beans. (If using fresh herbs, drop in the bunch of sprigs, looping excess string around the pot handle.) Cover and continue to simmer until beans are tender, about 1/2 hour.
  • Serve with a slotted spoon so most of the liquid remains in the pot.
