  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 1 large onion thinly sliced
  • Diamond Crystal kosher salt 
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 pound green beans trimmed and cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 (14 ounce) can of diced fire roasted tomatoes drained
  • 1-2 cups chicken broth or bone broth
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • Melt the ghee in a large skillet over medium heat.  Once the ghee melts, throw in the onions and a sprinkle of salt and sauté until translucent.
  • Add the minced garlic, green beans, tomatoes, and enough broth to cover everything. Increase the heat to high until the broth comes to a boil. Then, cover the skillet with a lid and reduce the heat to low to produce a constant simmer.
  • Let the beans simmer for 5-10 minutes (or as long as it takes) to get tender. Remove lid and simmer to reduce liquid for ~5 minutes. Taste the beans and season with salt and pepper to taste. Plate it up!
