  • 1 cup beer

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • 2 teaspoons salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 (12 ounce) package fresh green beans, trimmed

Dipping Sauce:

  • 1 cup ranch dressing

  1. Mix beer, flour, salt, and pepper together in a bowl. Coat beans with batter in small batches and shake off excess.
