We loved these green beans. Super easy to make. I fried mine to cook them quicker and really like the texture of the fried green beans.
Deep-Fried Green Beans with Garlic Sauce
(Adapted from Pickled Plum)
1 tablespoon soy sauce 1/4 cup chicken broth or vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic finely chopped
1/2pound green beans ends trimmed
1/2 teaspoon cornstarch
vegetable oil for frying
In a bowl, whisk in soy sauce, chicken broth, sesame oil and garlic and set aside.
Wash your beans and dry them with paper towel. You can either deep fry or broil the green beans.
In a pan over medium high heat, add broth mix and beans and bring to a boil. Add cornstarch, stir quickly and turn off the heat as soon as the sauce thickens.
Season with salt and serve immediately.
Heat about 1/2 cup of oil to 350 degrees ºF and slowly add beans. Fry for 2-3 minutes, until the beans are wrinkled. Remove from oil, turn off the heat and drain the beans on paper towel.
Lay a piece of parchment paper on a large cooking tray. Add green beans and 1 tbsp vegetable oil and toss to coat evenly. Lay the green beans flat on the tray (they should not be piled up) and season with salt. Broil in the oven for 3-6 minutes, until the beans are lightly charred. Transfer beans on paper towel.
