I first saw these on the menu at a local pub and I was immediately intrigued.  A deep-fried vegetable sounded odd, but yet interesting. I ordered them and I have been a fan ever since.  Make you own deep-fried green beans using the recipe below.

Peanut oil, for frying
1 cup beer
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 tsp. salt, plus more for seasoning
1/2 tsp. ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
1 pound green beans, ends trimmed


  1. Preheat oil to 375 degrees F.
  2. Whisk the beer, flour, salt and pepper until smooth.
  3. Dip green beans into batter to coat, letting excess drip off.
  4. Fry in the peanut oil in batches, until they are golden and crisp.
  5. Remove from oil with a spider strainer to a paper towel lined sheet tray.
  6. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Food Mingle Blog Alternative and Substitutions:

  • Instead of peanut oil, you can use any other high smoke point oil, such as canola oil, soybean oil or sesame oil.

Yield: 4-6 servings
