Fried Green Beans

Yep, you read that right, fried green beans.

One of my new favorite treats in Hot Springs is fried green beans. Fried pickles also remain at the top of the list but at this restaurant the pickles were not on the menu.


I know that some people view fried food as if it's nuclear waste but these green beans were very lightly breaded and deep fried in hot oil, thus reducing the fry time.

They were served with ranch dressing and were fresh tasting and delicious. I'm going to do some research and see if I can come up with a method of coating the beans. Some kind of panko coating perhaps?

Hope to see you tomorrow at the staff meeting!

It might have been the kind of batter used in making tempura. Tempura batter would make a light but tasty coating.

These are quite tasty and I wouldn't eat a cooked bean if you paid me, but prepared this way, they were all right. I'm in agreement with Denise.

Do you think they are precooked, or are they raw then fried? They look yummy!

We saw these recently at a local mom and pop restaurant. Didn't realize they were so popular these days. Theirs looked like they had a light flour type coating - maybe dipped in buttermilk and then the seasoned flour. It's so good to have you back online!
