Flat Beans with Lamb
(Kuzu Etli Taze Fasulye)
150 gr lamb cubes
1 onion, chopped
500 gr flat beans, washed, cut off the ends, in bite sizes
50 ml olive oil
1 tbsp butter
4 garlic cloves, sliced
2 tbsp crushed tomato, in can
1 cup + 2 cups hot water
Cook the lamb cubes with its own juice. After all the water evaporates, add the onion and olive oil, saute for a few minutes. Add 1 cup of hot water, cook over medium-low heat until all the water evaporates and the lamb pieces soften. Then add rest of the ingredients with 2 cups of hot water. Cover the lid halfway and cook for 35 minutes until the beans become soft (but not too much) over medium heat. If necessary add more hot water.
* While you're cooking this, put away 7-8 flat green beans to make Tomato Soup with Flat Green Beans :)
* If you like to store some fresh Flat Green Beans in the freezer to cook later, first wash them and cut off the ends. Bring to a boil water with salt in the pot. Throw the beans in and boil for 2 minutes and drain. Divide them up and place them in Ziploc bags. Keep in the freezer. When you want to cook them, you don't need to defrost.
