  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.

This was a great appetizer! The only thing is it's a bit tedious and I didn't care for the dip.

I had a difficult time finding wasabi powder, so I used 1 tsp of horseradish, and 1/2 tsp wasabi sauce. The sauce was very runny. The beans are awesome. I did not measure exactly to the recipe. ...

Used a horseradish/wasabi sauce, otherwise followed as directed and it turned out fantastic!

Used this sauce with the recipe of Green Bean Fries also on this site. It is a similar way to prepare the green beans without having to use up 4 cups of chicken broth. In the sauce I almost do...
