Italian Stewed String Beans

Spread the love

This is a summer staple in my house. Yet another dish I grew up eating, especially in summer with the string beans are their most delicious. It is such an easy dish packed with flavor. Our recipe calls for the addition of some kind of cured pork, whether it be salt pork, pancetta or bacon. It takes this dish to whole other level. We also add potato which is traditional in my families region of Italy. I hope you enjoy my family’s spin on this classic Italian dish. My mom always made this with chicken cutlets and now that’s how I make it for my family.
