About this recipe: This is a delicious recipe that I grew up on - a traditional Greek way to prepare lamb. Lamb and onion are browned in olive oil, then cooked with fresh green beans in a tomato sauce, lightly seasoned with salt and pepper. I've added my own touch with some fresh mint.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 600g mutton, chopped
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1kg fresh french beans, washed and chopped
  • 600g tomato paste
  • 225ml water
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh mint leaves

  1. Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium high heat. Add lamb and onion and cook until meat is browned; stir in beans and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  2. Stir in tomato paste, water, salt, pepper and mint. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for about 1 hour or until cooked through and beans are tender. Check halfway through cooking - if there is too much liquid, simmer uncovered for the remaining 30 minutes.
