Green Bean and Lamb Stew


Salwaa’s Green Beans Stew

A simple yet tasty recipe for green beans stew or bredie as we know it in Cape Town. Easy to make, a great idea for a healthy and nutritious meal. Here I used trimmed fine beans. Best of all 3 heaped tablespoons green beans equals one of your 5 a day.

Always braise meat until very dark in colour, carefully watching it, so that it doesn’t burn to get a nice dark colour stew.
