1 large onion, chopped
1 pkg beef hot dogs (can substitute turkey or veggie)
1 lb string beans, ends snapped off
1 large can plum tomatoes
1 cup basil (whole leaves)
My mother used to make this in a pressure cooker. Today, we both use our crock pots but it can also be made in a regular, large pot.
Saute the onions until translucent.
Add the remaining ingredients.
Cook until string beans are nice and soft (about 4 hours in a crock pot).
