Ever since I bought a deep fryer I feel like I have to try everything in it. I haven’t made fried green beans in at least 10 years, and it was back when I was in the restaurant industry. So now that I have this thing, it was time to hook’em up! This is a really easy recipe and you can make it with out fryer by simple frying in a pan, but the trick is to add in just a few green beans at a time or else you will get a huge weird clump of green beans, and it won’t be good.
While this Fried Green Beans Recipe is awesome by itself, I felt the need to make a sweet and spicy dipping sauce using honey, Sriracha and a few other goodies. Be sure to try these out as a side dish to this Umami Grilled Turkey Burger Recipe.

Fried Green Beans Recipe
- 1 pound of trimmed fresh green beans
- 1/2 cup of flour
- 1/2 cup of corn starch
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 3/4 cup of club soda
- 1/2 cup of Sriracha
- 1/4 cup of honey
- 2 tablespoons of rice wine vinegar
- dash of fish sauce
- 2 tablespoons of water
- 1 teaspoon of chopped fresh cilantro
- Kosher salt and fresh cracked pepper to taste
In a large bowl mix together the flour, corn starch, baking powder, salt and pepper until combined. Next, whisk in the club soda.
Put the green beans in the batter and add them 1 by 1 to your deep fryer on 350° and cook them for 3 to 4 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Drain any oil by placing the green beans on a paper towel.
In a separate medium sized bowl whisk together the Sriracha, honey, vinegar, fish sauce, water, and cilantro.
Serve the fried green beans alongside the sweet Sriracha dipping sauce.
