HOW TO MAKE TGI FRIDAYS CRISPY GARLIC GREEN BEANS
Total time: 35 minutes
Wasabi Cucumber Ranch Dip
- 1⁄2 Cup bottled ranch dressing (Hidden Valley is best)
- 1⁄4 Cup cucumber, peeled, seeded, minced
- 1 Tbs milk
- 1 1⁄2 Tsp prepared horseradish
- 1 Tsp cider vinegar
- 1 Tsp wasabi powder
- 1⁄8 Tsp salt
- 1 pinch cayenne pepper
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 Cup milk
- 4 Cups vegetable broth or 4 cups chicken broth
- 6-8 oz. fresh green beans
- 1 Cup flour
- 1 Cup plain breadcrumbs or 1 cup seasoned dry bread crumb
- 3⁄4 Tsp salt
- 1⁄4 Tsp onion powder
- 1⁄8 Tsp garlic powder
- vegetable shortening, for frying or vegetable oil
- Combine dip ingredients in blender. Blend until smooth.
- Place in a bowl; cover and chill until ready to use. Dip will thicken as it chills.
- Place fresh green beans in the chicken broth.
- Bring to a boil and cook 10 minutes, then place in cold water to stop the cooking process. Don’t skip this!
- In a shallow bowl, add 1 Cup of flour.
- In a second shallow bowl, mix beaten egg with milk.
- In a third bowl, combine the bread crumbs, 3/4 teaspoons salt, black pepper, onion powder and garlic powder.
- Take a handful of beans out of the cold water and shake off excess liquid.
- Coat the beans with the flour, shaking to remove excess flour. Then dip the beans, one at a time, into the egg/milk mixture, then dip into the breadcrumb mixture. (Repeat this entire process again if want a more crunchier texture).
- Place the beans on a plate until all are coated.
- Heat the shortening or oil to 350°F in a heavy skillet (or use deep fryer). Use enough oil to cover the beans, about 1 1/2 inches.
- Fry until golden brown, about 1 1/2 minutes.
- Drain on paper towels.
- To serve, place on a large platter and serve with the wasabi cucumber ranch dip. Enjoy!
- After they’ve been dipped in the batter, they can also be placed in the freezer first to harden before frying. This will give them even more tastier results.
- Kids will eat these up, so serve with a side of regular Ranch dressing (’cause most don’t like the wasabi!).
