Serbian Green Beans

Martha Price


I first tried this recipe in a 24-hour diner in San Jose, CA. The diner was quite eclectic in its' menu options - a little Mexican - a little Italian, etc., - but mainly American and Greek.

I don't know how many of their options were "authentic", but they were all good, including this one.

This is great for those who aren't that crazy about green beans; they may very well find they like them prepared this way!
