1/1 Photo of Dry-Fried Green Beans
Tasty side dish when green beans are fresh. If you have access to Chinese yard-long beans you can use those too, just cut into 2-3 inch lengths. In any case the beans must be fresh, not canned or frozen. The canned and frozen forms have too much moisture in them to fry properly.
My Private Note
