Sauteed Spring Beans

Sauteed Spring Beans

My dad’s garden continues to grow and it continues giving us delicious vegetables. One of my favourite is the Spring Beans.

There are a few ways to cook them, we enjoy eating them sauteed in homemade sauce or combined with tender meat.

This recipe is very simple. The spring beans are an addon to some leftover meat from the day before. Tender pork wrapped in foil and then tossed in the oven. Delicious!

Today we cut the pork into cubes and sauté them. When the spring beans are tender we then add them to the sautéed pork.
