Fried Green Beans With Garlic

Fried Green Beans With Garlic

This dish uses the technique of frying in hot oil until they the beans become crunchy and flavorful.  You could add pork or crumbled feta cheese if you want to.  I have been known to eat the cold from the fridge the next day. 


1/2 Cup Olive Oil

1 Pound Green Beans

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

6 Garlic Cloves (Thinly Sliced)

1 Tablespoon Capers (Drained And Chopped)

1 Teaspoon Crushed Red Pepper Flakes

Heat oil in large-size skillet over a high heat.  Add green beans and cook 3 minutes until browned underneath.  Cover with a splatter screen if the oil is splatter.  Don’t toss, but turn beans with tongs and cook until beans are browned evenly.  Continue to cook another 5 minutes, turning occasionally, until browned all over.  Season with kosher salt.  Add garlic, capers, and red pepper flakes.  Cook, turning occasionally, about 1 minute just until garlic turns golden. 

Transfer beans to serving platter.  Spoon garlic mixture with some oil over.  Season with additional kosher salt if needed. 

Serve warm.
