Green Bean Stew

Green Bean Stew

Green bean stew is a very popular casserole dish for winter seasons. On cold, rainy days nothing is better than a lovely stew or a delicious soup. Even here in South Africa, we love making these types of meals such as tomato stew on white rice or bobotie with yellow rice. With the green bean stew you can you use lamb meat or beef meat. It is absolutely your choice. I prefer beef, as I am not personally a lover of lamb meat. The potatoes in this stew absolutely make this stew, a stew isn’t a stew without some potatoes in it. If you are on one of those diet meals where you can have no potaotes - sorry you will be for sure be missing out. A delicious meal served on a bed of white rice.
