Beef and Bean Stew


1/4 pound salt pork, diced
4 onions, peeled and chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds stew beef cubed
1 can (28 ounces) tomatoes and juice
2 cups beef stock
2 cups fresh green beans, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 cup boiling water
Salt and pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Fry salt pork in oven-proof casserole until crisp. Remove with slotted spoon. Saute onions and garlic in fat. Add beef and stir over low heat until all sides arc brown. Add tomatoes and stock. Cover and bake 2-½ hours. When meat is tender, simmer beans, uncovered, in boiling water 5 minutes. Drain, add to stew, and stir. Season with salt and pepper.
