1 Season the ribs all over with salt and pepper.

Roll in the flour to coat, shaking off any excess.

2 Heat a little oil in a deep saucepan and brown the meat in batches.

Remove from the pan and set aside.

3 Add a little more oil to the saucepan if needed and fry the onions and garlic until fragrant.

4 Return the meat to the saucepan and pour the stock over.

Bring to the boil, lower the heat and simmer until the meat is tender.

5 Stir occasionally to ensure the meat isn’t catching and add a little more water if the stew becomes dry.

6 As soon as the meat is tender, add the rest of the ingredients and simmer slowly until the green beans are soft and the sauce has thickened.

7 Add more salt and pepper if needed.

8 TO SERVE Spoon the stew over pap and garnish with parsley (if using).
