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.
