1 hour 30 minutes
500g ground beef
275g of mixed canned beans
400g canned whole peeled tomatoes
extra virgin olive oil
salt, to taste
Heat a little extra virgin olive oil in a deep non-stick casserole dish. When the oil starts sizzling, add ground beef and sauté, stirring often.
In the meantime, peel and finely chop the onion. Remove the tomatoes from the can and let them drain in a colander.
When the beef has browned, add the onion and sauté.
Add the tomatoes, the canned beans, two tablespoons of bean water, and a little salt.
Crush the tomatoes with a fork, mix carefully and cook over medium heat for about 40 minutes, stirring often.
When the stew has reduced to a thick sauce, take it off the heat. Use the beef and bean sauce as a pasta sauce or serve with toasted sourdough bread.
