Lebanese Beef and Green Beans is a very simple recipe that packs a whole lot of flavor. Ground beef and onions are slowly simmered in a rich tomato sauce. Fresh green beans are added and allowed to simmer for a few minutes before serving.

Served with Garlic Smashed Potatoes, this meal was a simple and delicious way to get dinner on the table with a minimum of fuss.

My sister Jenny made Lebanese Beef and Green Beans for us for the first time several years ago, while spending a weekend up at the cabin with our families.

Originally, one of her Aunt A’s family recipes, it has become a favorite for both her family and my own over the years. My nieces are so lucky to have Aunt A in their life, she is full of love and support and never drops in without a fun treat or surprise. She’s the kind of aunt that everyone should be so lucky to have in their life.

This is a super easy recipe, the secret is in the simmering and that splash of wine. Like many dinners that I love, the hands-on time is minimal. If you’re looking for more easy dinner recipes, check out this {20-Minute} Kielbasa and Cabbage Skillet, my kid’s favorite Cheater Korean Beef, and these Pan Fried Italian Chicken Thighs.

Caprese Skillet Chicken is a skillet meal that’s ready almost as fast as the cheese can melt. This One Pot Sausage Rice and Peas Dinner is my middle son’s favorite meal to cook all by himself.

Crunchy Honey Chicken is a huge favorite with my youngest son and he frequently asks for that “sweet crunchy chicken that I love.” Whatever you’re craving, I bet there’s an EASY dinner recipe here to fit it.

    I add 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp allspice. Nice, middle eastern flavor. I have made this so many times, I am also making it with cubed eggplant. We love it!5 stars
