History:
String beans with lamb is a classic dish that combines the tenderness of lamb with the crispiness of string beans. It is a popular dish in many cultures around the world, including Mediterranean and Middle Eastern cuisines. The combination of meat and vegetables has been enjoyed for centuries, with various regional variations.

Fun Facts:
- String beans are also known as green beans or snap beans.
- String beans are a rich source of vitamins A, C, and K, as well as dietary fiber.
- Lamb is a tender and flavorful meat that pairs well with a variety of ingredients.
- Adding flour to the dish helps to thicken the sauce and give it a rich and creamy texture.
- The sweet and sour variation of string beans is a creative twist on the classic recipe, adding a tangy and sweet flavor profile.

Ingredients:
- 1 small breast of lamb
- 2 large onions, diced
- 1/4 peck (approximately 8 cups) of string beans, cut into long thin pieces
- 6 large tomatoes, skinned
- 2 cups of water
- 1 tablespoon of flour

Instructions:
1. Start by trimming any excess fat from the lamb breast and cutting it into small pieces.
2. In a large pot, heat some oil over medium heat. Add the diced onions and sauté until they become translucent.
3. Add the lamb pieces to the pot and cook until they are browned on all sides.
4. Meanwhile, skin the tomatoes by making a small incision at the base and placing them in boiling water for about 30 seconds. Remove them from the water and peel off the skin.
5. Once the lamb is browned, add the skinned tomatoes to the pot along with the water. Stir everything together.
6. Cover the pot and let it simmer for about 1 hour or until the lamb becomes tender.
7. After the lamb is cooked, add the string beans to the pot and cook until they become tender. This usually takes about 10-15 minutes.
8. In a separate bowl, mix a tablespoon of flour with some water to create a slurry. Slowly stir the slurry into the pot to thicken the sauce.
9. Continue cooking for a few more minutes until the sauce thickens to your desired consistency.
10. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
11. Serve the string beans with lamb over a bed of steamed rice or couscous.
