The Ingredients

Here’s what you’ll need to make the Beer Battered Fried Green Beans (the exact measurements and full recipe instructions are below in the printable recipe card):

  • Flour
  • Cumin
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Garlic powder
  • Onion powder
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Beer – you can use any beer that you like for a beer batter. We just went for a classic American beer.

For the Sriracha dipping sauce:

  • Mayonnaise

How to Make Fried Green Beans

Begin by whisking together the ingredients for the Sriracha dipping sauce. Cover the bowl and place in the refrigerator until you’re ready to serve the fried green beans.

Next, toss the washed a trimmed green beans in 1/2 cup of the flour until they are well coated. In a bowl, plate, or pie plate, mix together the remaining flour and seasonings.

Add the beer a little at a time and stir well until the thick batter forms. Don’t pour the beer in too fast or it will foam up and the batter will end up lumpy.

Heat 1-2 inches of vegetable oil in a large pot or Dutch oven to 375º. Once the oil is hot, dip a green bean into the batter and gently drop it into the hot oil. This is best to do with heat-proof tongs to be able to lower the green bean into the oil without splashing. Fry a small batch of green beans until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes, then repeat in small batches until all of the green beans are battered and fried.

As you remove the fried green beans from the oil, place them on a baking sheet lined with a few layers of paper towels. This will soak up any extra cooking oil from the green beans while they cool down enough to eat.

Variations for Green Bean Fries

More Heat – Love your food spicy hot? You can kick up the heat in the green beans by doubling the cayenne pepper in the beer batter. Also, add as much Sriracha as you want to the sauce.

Yellow Beans – Have you ever seen yellow beans at the grocery store? They are just like green beans, but yellow. For variation, use half green beans and half yellow beans.

No Mayo – If you don’t enjoy mayonnaise, you can use sour cream for the dipping sauce instead.

Vegan – This recipe can easily be made vegan! Just swap out the mayonnaise in the dipping sauce for a vegan mayo. Perfect!

How to Store Leftovers

Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The sriracha dipping sauce should also be kept covered and refrigerated.

To reheat, place the green beans on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 400ºF for a few minutes until hot.
