An irresistible combination of green beans, tomatoes, olive oil, and garlic that partners well with almost any entree. For a more colorful dish try a blend of green beans and wax beans.
Stir green beans, olive oil, garlic, sugar, and salt in a large skillet. Place a cover on the skillet and cook over low heat until green beans are slightly tender, about 15 minutes.
Pour beef broth over the green bean mixture; continue cooking uncovered about 5 minutes more.
Increase heat to medium-high. Stir tomatoes and parsley through the green bean mixture; continue cooking until beans are cooked through and tender, about 5 minutes more.
