Make bar style beer battered onion rings at home!
Yes…those tasty things above are what you think they are, except probably soooo much better. Beer Battered Onion Rings….mmmmmm. These Beer Battered Onion Rings are from the resourceful little cookbook by my friend, Susan Russo called Recipes Every Man Should Know. Check out my review of the book over at the Mom it Forward blog, where I had a guest post today. You can find the recipe below!
Beer Battered Onion Rings
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon seasoned salt such as Lawry's
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1 12-ounce bottle beer, preferably dark 2 large sweet onions, such as Bermuda, Vidalia or Walla Walla, sliced into 1/2 inch thick rounds and separated into rings
- Canola oil for frying
In a medium bowl, combine the flour, seasoned salt, baking powder, and pepper. Slowly add beer. Set aside.
Place onion rings in a bowl of ice water and let chill for 15 minutes. Remove onion from water and pat dry with paper towels.
Fill a medium heavy bottomed pot with 2 inches of canola oil and heat to 370 degrees. (It's ready when a little batter dropped into the oil bubbles and floats immediately to the top.) Dip each onion ring in batter, letting excess drip into the bowl.
Fry onion rings in batches, being careful not to over crowd.
Cook 1-2 minutes per side or until golden brown. If they're too dark, lower the heat. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate to drain. Serve with ketchup, ranch dressing, Thousand Island dressing, spicy mustard, BBQ sauce, or any condiment you like.
