Ingredients

  • Oil, for frying
  • 4 cups tempura mix*
  • 1 pint beer
  • 1 pound fresh string beans, strings removed
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • Pinch kosher salt

Directions

Preheat a deep fryer to 300 degrees F, or in a large heavy-bottomed saucepan, pour enough oil to fill the pan about a third of the way. Heat over medium heat until a deep-frying thermometer inserted in the oil reaches 300 degrees F. 

In a bowl, mix the tempura mix and the beer. In a separate bowl, mix the string beans, heavy cream, flour, and salt. Add the bean mixture to the tempura mixture and coat the beans well. Lift the coated beans out of the batter, allow the excess batter to drip back into the bowl, and add the beans to the fryer and fry, in batches, until light golden brown. Drain the beans on paper towels, and serve immediately.
