One of the best things on the menu at P.F. Changs is their Crispy Fried Green Beans. These green beans taste even better, and you can make them at home! They have a delightful crunch and are seasoned to perfection!

Appetizers are my favorite part of a meal! Check out some more of my favorites like these delicious Egg Rolls, these yummy Bacon Wrapped Chestnuts or these Easy Chicken Lettuce Wraps.

Fried Green Beans Recipe

These fried green beans are so crunchy and delicious! Also known as green bean fries, this recipe is quick and easy and your entire family will love them!

I first tried these green bean fries at P.F. Changs and couldn’t get enough of them! But going out to eat isn’t always an option, so I wanted to recreate them at home. This recipe not only turned out delicious but, in my opinion, even better than the originals! Serve them with this Super Easy Mongolian Beef , and these Asian Turkey Lettuce Wraps, and it will be just like eating out but better (not to mention WAY more leftovers)!

Ingredients You Need

Fresh green beans, a few ingredients to make the batter, and voila! You have yourself the most delicious, breaded green beans! Check out the recipe card at the bottom of the post for all of the exact measurements.

  • Green Beans: Trim off the ends of your green beans and wash them well before using them in this recipe.
  • Flour: I used all-purpose flour for these green beans.
  • Cornstarch: This will help you achieve that fried outside edge.
  • Egg: I always use large eggs when I am cooking.
  • Club Soda: Keep this in the fridge until you are ready to use it so that it’s nice and cold.
  • Vegetable Oil: This is what you will fry the green beans in.
  • Salt and Pepper: You can use coarse salt or garlic salt to flavor the beans.

How to Fry Green Beans

This recipe whips up in less than 20 minutes from start to finish. These breaded and crispy green beans are what appetizer dreams are made of!

  1. Prep: Heat the oil to 375 degrees Fahrenheit in a large saucepan or deep fryer. Wash and trim the ends of the green beans.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients: To a medium-sized bowl, add the flour and cornstarch and whisk to combine.
  3. Beat the egg: In another bowl, beat the egg, then stir in the club soda.
  4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients: Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture, then whisk it to combine.
  5. Dip and fry: Dip each green bean into the batter, then place it in the pot of oil. Cook for 3-4 minutes until golden in color. Remove from the oil and transfer to a plate lined with paper towels. Repeat the steps until all the green beans are cooked.
  6. Season and Serve: Season with salt and pepper. Serve with sriracha mayo or your favorite dipping sauce.

How to Store and Reheat Leftovers

You can store any leftover green beans in an airtight container in the fridge, and they will last for 2-3 days. To reheat fried green beans and get them nice and crispy again, you can reheat them in the air fryer or in the oven. Don’t use the microwave, or they will be soggy.
