Goner Message Board / Food & Drink / Deep fried green beans

Don't let TGIFriday's fool you, the "crispy" green beans are gross and not crispy at ALL...and the wasabi ranch dipping sauce is terrible too.
I didn't think it was possible to make ranch taste worse, but they managed to do it.

I have an appreciation for all things fried, but I haven't heard of this. Makes as much sense as deep-frying a carrot.
Now, deep-frying those sliced carrots that come in the jalapeno jars, that would be interesting.
Best way to dress Green beans is to wrap 3 or 4 of them in bacon and coat with a little vinegar or dressing.

green beans fucking suck

Are these green beans battered and deep fried? If so, I don't see how they could not be delicious. As I've stated before, you could batter and deep fry a sock and it would taste great.

yes, they are battered and deep fried, kinda taste like a limp unflavorful onion ring

THESE CAN BE DELICIOUS!!!! This good restaurant here, Park Kitchen, batters them tempura-like, deep fries and serves em in a milkshake glass with a papercone to catch all the grease. Then I think you get an aioli dipping sauce...yum!!!!

I have done this...sorta. Basically, you refrigerate your leftover mac n cheese and the next day, cut some into little bite sized pieces. Coat in egg and panko bread crumbs. Then fry that shit in a cast iron. It is unbelievably delicious. The cheese remelts and the panko is all crunchy. I only do this about once a year.

You left out something terribly crucial- they are served with BACON. Yes: battered, breaded, deep-fried green beans in a cup with bacon and aioli. Portland is indeed the land of milk & honey.

i've had tempura fried green beans before, in a japanese restaurant. you just dip them in the same type of soy/tamari/whatever the hell it's called sauce there though. nothing as fancy as an aioli.

i like green beans. but i definitely don't trust tgifriday's to do anything but suck.

Man, I was so amazed by the delicacy of deep fried green beans in a cone that I somehow missed the bacon!

Yeah. I will miss Portland.

Oh yeah......the Blue Danube has these, and they are sesame/teriyaki battered goodness.

Same place has this, too, but have not tried. Will have to based on Fiery's recommendation...
