DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat Rice Bran oil or other high temperature oil to 375 degrees F.
  • Whisk the beer, flour, salt and pepper until smooth.
  • Let mixture sit for a little bit (can be made ahead).
  • Trim green bean ends and/or caps off okra (If using okra use only smaller young pods).
  • Dip green beans and/or okra into the batter to coat, letting excess drip off. (I use a strainer).
  • Fry in the oil in batches, until they are golden and crisp.
  • Remove from oil with a strainer to a paper towel lined plate or cookie sheet.
  • Sprinkle with salt and pepper. I use fresh ground pepper and fresh ground coarse salt.
  • After finding I had extra batter left over, I added cinnamon and raw cane sugar to the batter and split some regular eating bananas -- battered them up and fried them too. Added drizzle of honey and scoop of vanilla ice cream -- and Viola! Tasty dessert with no hint of the aforementioned green beans nor okra.
