       Yield: 4 servings
       1 lb Green beans
       1 md Onion, chopped
       2 ea Chopped tomatoes
       1 ts Salt
     1/3 c  Extra virgin olive oil
   3 1/2 ts Sugar
            1/2-2 c water
   Trim beans & cut into 3 pieces, wash & drain.
   Put onion & tomato into a heavy pan.  Sprinkle with salt & rub in
   lightly with fingers.  Stir in the beans, olive oil & sugar, mix
   well. Cover & cook for 15 minutes over medium heat.  Stir
   occasionally. The beans will lose their colour & soften.  When all
   the moisture has been absorbed, stir-fry the beans for 2 to 3
   minutes. Add 1/2 cup water, cover & simmer for 40 to 50 minutes, till
   the beans are tender. Add more water if necessary, 1/2 cup at a time.
   When cooked, the dish should be very moist but not watery. Serve cold
   as part of a buffet.
