Directions

  1. Make the dip by combining the buttermilk ranch dressing, cucumber, milk, horseradish, wasabi, salt, and cayenne pepper into a blender. Blend on low until well mixed. Pour into a small bowl and refrigerate. The dip will thicken as it chills.
  2. Place the broth in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the beans, cover, and bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium and simmer until beans are bright green and tender, about 8 minutes. Immediately drain beans into a colander and rinse under cold water. Set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the beaten egg with milk in a shallow bowl. Place the flour in another shallow bowl. In a third shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder. Working with a handful of beans at a time, dip each bean first into flour, then into the egg mixture, and then into the bread crumb mixture. Place beans on a plate until all are coated.
  4. Heat 1 1/2 inches of oil in a deep skillet (or use a deep fat fryer) over medium-high heat to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Fry the beans several at a time, without crowding, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels and cool. Serve with horseradish-wasabi dip.

I've made these twice now. First time as written but then made a few changes for the better. I didn't add the tablespoon milk to the dip, didn't need it. I did use the wasabi powder but only used 1/2 teaspoon. For the green beans I cooked them in water instead of vegetable broth. I cut down on the salt to 1/2 teaspoon and 1/4 pepper. The most important change I made was I used panko bread crumbs and it made these extra crispy.

Excellent! I tried these for the first time at TGIFridays and wondered if I could find a comparable recipe on this site... I found one that's even better! Thanks for the great recipe!

green beans turned out awesome . i made these for new years and the beans were a hit ... i didn't really like the sauce. i made double the green beans but i wouldn't recommend doubling the sauce we had plenty and a ton left over. also with the sauce i wouldn't use the wasabi powder it gives the dip a funny taste. i would use wasabi paste or mayonnaise. we ended up using a little more horse radish too. other then that it was good.
