Lamb with Green Beans Recipe

  • 3 pounds lamb breast, lean
  • 4 cups fresh green beans, cut up
  • 6 small onions, peeled
  • 3 tablespoons any fat
  • 3 cups water
  • 4 tablespoons vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper flour for thickening

Cut meat into cubes and brown in melted fat in frying pan. Turn all, including any fat in pan, into a baking dish which has a lid. Place vegetables on top of lamb. Add salt, pepper, water and vinegar. Cover and bake in a 350 oven until meat and vegetables are tender, about 11/2 to 2 hours. Shortly before serving, thicken gravy by adding a thin paste of flour and water to 1/2 cup of the hot liquid, then returning diluted flour paste to the meat and vegetables, blending well. Cook 10 minutes longer. Serves 6.
