Prepare your green beans by cutting off the pointy ends, not too much just enough to remove the thin part and open shell. Crack them in the middle and wash in a sieve. Peel your potatoes and cut them into cubes, approximately 3 x 3 centimetres small. Prepare your lemon zest and chop your onions into fine cubes.
Add 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil into a large pot over medium heat. When the oil is hot add your onions and saute until translucent. Add your potato cubes and to the onions and brown them for a few minutes,
Add the remaining ingredients, everything should be barely covered with liquid, don't worry if a couple of green beans are sticking out of the water. Bring to simmer and cook with a closed lid for 45-50 minutes. Taste your potatoes and green brands, they should be soft but not mushy. Take off the heat and your green bean ragout is ready.
