Green Beans and Pork (Mancare de Fasole Verde)

This is another childhood favorite of mine.  Is super easy to put together and so comforting.  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-4 cans green beans, rinsed and drained
-4 cans water (just fill the empty ones from the beans)
-1 medium onion, finely chopped (or a handful of dehydrated onion)
-2 Tbs tomato paste
-salt
-pepper
-1 Tbs cornstarch
-1 lb pork
-seasoned salt
-pepper
-frying oil
Directions:
If using raw or frozen onion, saute it in 1 Tbs vegetable oil in a large saucepan, until translucent. Add the beans and water, and let it cook on low heat. If using the dehydrated onions, add it now. Also add the tomato paste and mix well. Meanwhile, cut the pork into bite size pieces and lightly season them with the seasoned salt and pepper. Once cooked, drain them on paper towels.
Take about 1/4 cup of the water out of the sauce pan in a small container. Add the cornstarch and mix until nice and creamy (no lumps). Add the mixture to the peas. Add the salt and pepper to taste. Add the pork and let everything simmer for about 10 minutes, until the flavors blend together. Enjoy!
