Greek green beans - awesome side dish from stuff in your pantry

JethroVAJethroVA Posts: 1,002
Great side dish from the pantry with a taste that goes awesome with grilled meat.    Chop two cups of onions and saute in 3/4 cup olive oil. add in two TBS minced garlic.  cook until onions are translucent.  dump in two cans (29oz) of diced tomatoes juice included. Add one TBS dried oregano.   Simmer for 10 min then add two cans (29oz) green beans.  season with S&P to your liking.  add a bit more oregano just because.  simmer low low for at least three hours. the longer the better. serve with a slotted spoon so all that olive oil doesn't end up on the plate.

    I do something very similar but I use Rotel for a little bite. Looks good brother. 

    Location- Just "this side" of Biloxi, Ms.

    Status- Standing by.

    Arsenal-Just a small wore out and broken down Weber kettle. No other means to cook at all.

    The greatest barrier against all wisdom, the stronghold against knowledge itself, is the single thought in ones mind, that they already have it all figured out.

    Edit: I meant to say two 14.5 oz cans of tomatoes. Total 29 oz

    Thanks for this. Tried it and it is very good. Only used 1/3 cup olive oil though and it is still very good.

    Sounds tasty.  Always looking for a good side.  I'll use the fresh bag of green beans that come in a two pack from Sam's.  I was thinking of subbing some bacon fat for some of the EVOO, just because bacon is good.  Thanks for the idea.
