Place in a saucepan of cold water and bring to the boil. Drain and re­serve lamb. Heat oil in a heavy-based saucepan and gen­tly fry in onion and gar­lic un­til soft, about 10 min­utes. Add wine and re­duce by two thirds. In a sep­a­rate saucepan cook beans un­til half cooked through, about 20 min­utes, then drain. Add bay leaves, mar­jo­ram sprigs and toma­toes to onions.
