oil for deep frying
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle
fresh green beans, rinsed and trimmed
salt to taste
Absolutely fantastic!! Light and tasty batter. I definitely had to add flour and I also added some Italian breadcrumbs to thicken it up. I used Sam Adam's Light Lager beer. Deep fried small florets of broccoli and cauliflower plus some button mushrooms. Dipping sauce also great. Received rave reviews from my guests.
I thought this was just o.k. but because my husband and daughter seemed to like it a lot and it was very easy to make, I will probably make it again. The batter seemed extremely runny so not much stuck to the beans and I didn't think they had much flavor. I know I prepared the recipe correctly so I don't know what happened. The soy sauce mixture is good.
This is a great recipe! It was very easy and they taasted great. The dipping sauce is a must. This is also a great batter. I think that it would be good on other vegetables that you might want to serve this way, if green beans are not you favorite.
This was sooo good, that when we were done eating, my husband asked me to cook more! Easy recipe, and I think the batter would be good on just about anything. The sauce is great too.
Very light batter. The sauce is makes this appetizer very tasty. Without it, there really isn't much flavor.
Absolutely wonderful! I was a little skeptical, but, omg! I will never buy boxed tempura again!! I actually used the batter for bay scallops, and my husband and 2 year old gobbled them up! I only added garlic pepper, and onion powder, because it wasn't a veggie. Thanks so much for the recipe!!!
Great alternative to fries! Does take dedicated time and space, unless you have a small deep fat fryer, but very good (and one of those "help me do it" dishes that cooking company can enjoy doing).
I've made this receipe many times and I can't keep up with everyone gobbling them down. If I do have left overs I just freeze them and pop them in the oven when I want a great snack.
