Nutritional values

An originally powerful classic in a light garment: We used less flour and fat than usual to "stoven" the beans. The pork provides the B vitamins and protein that are so important for nerves and muscles.

The original recipe provides for "snipped beans": For this, the broad or pole beans are cut into small pieces with a slicing machine. If you want to try it out, you can also do the snipping by hand or with a food processor.
