Greek Style Green Beans

This was my Grandma's recipe. I'm not sure if it's Greek or not, but that's what she called it! For some reason it always tasted better when she cooked it, but, I think everything tastes better when your Grandma makes it!

Greek Style Green Beans
Makes 4-6 Servings

1/2 lb green beans (any variety will work so use what you prefer)
6 plum tomatoes quartered OR 1 can of diced tomatoes
1 large red onion, halved and then sliced
3 tbsp olive oil
salt to taste

I do not think there are easier instructions than for this recipe. Combine all the ingredients in a pot with a lid. It will look like this:

Cover and simmer until everything becomes tender, probably about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. If the mixture is too dry and starts to stick, add a 1/4 cup of water.

You wouldn't think simple food could be so delicious, but just try it out, I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.
