Another green bean dish! This time, with meat and served with Eva’s rice dish! (recipe here) Lubieh Bil Lahme is definite comfort food and perfect for a chilly day. It’s a great main dish that’s easy to make, so save this one for a night you are craving something enak & filling for dinner but don’t want to put too much time into cooking.


1 pound green beans
14.5 ounces crushed tomatoes (diced tomatoes, sliced tomatoes or whatever is in your pantry)
2 tablespoons of olive oil
2 medium garlic cloves
1 small onion
1/2 teaspoon of salt
3/4 teaspoon of pepper
1/2 teaspoon of allspice
3/4 pound of steak (round, bottom, top, your preference)

This makes about 4 servings

1. Dice onion and garlic finely and cut steak into cubes
2. Cut ends and remove strings from green beans and rinse (you can also buy packaged green beans to save time)
3. In a pot, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium heat & add onions and garlic to sauté
4. Once onions and garlic are wilted and light brown (5 minutes), add meat, 3/4 teaspoon pepper, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1/2 teaspoon of salt (remember pepper, salt, and allspice to taste) and stir well. Stir often until meat is cooked and no longer red (8 minutes)

5. Add green beans and toss well to coat. Stir after one minute for 3 minutes

6. Add tomatoes and stir again after one minute for 3 minutes (canned tomatoes will make it stewy, if you would prefer it to be juicier add 1/2 cup of water)

7. After four minutes, the mix should begin to boil. Once boiling, let simmer on low heat and cover

8. After about 8-10 minutes stir mixture and cover again. Cook until green beans are tender (around 30 minutes, more or less time depending on how crunchy you want your green beans to be)
