Beer Battered Onion Rings

We have all at one time or another had those fast food greasy as heck onion rings. My wife (aka Household CEO) came to me one day and said, “Make me some amazing onion rings with a golden crust that are not a messy grease trap”. So, I began my mission. Make golden onion rings that are not overwhelmingly greasy. Mission accepted. It is not that I had much of a choice, I mean the love of my life told me too, and between you and me I am a little scared of her. I can write this here because she does not read these blogs. Therefore, we are safe.

My first thought was beer batter. It puffs up and gets so golden brown. This really was a no brainer. However, the taste had to be there too. I know she did not want to eat a batter that tasted like beer and flour. After a few test runs I knew I was onto something and here she is… amazing, fantastic, incredible, outstanding…ok I think you get it. I bring to you beer battered onion rings.

Beer Battered Onion Rings

Ingredients

  • Peanut oil
  • 2 Vidalia onions sliced ½ inch thick into rings
  • 2 cups of buttermilk
  • 3 cups of flour
  • 12 oz. beer (I recommend a pale ale)
  • 1 teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 teaspoon fresh Rosemary finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • S&P to taste

Instructions

  1. Directions (or guidelines, I mean…you be you)
  2. Soak cut onions in the buttermilk for at least an hour.
  3. Add peanut oil to a Dutch oven or fryer and heat to 350 degrees.
  4. Combine flour with S&P (to your liking but don’t be skimpy), granulated garlic, paprika and rosemary.
  5. In another bowl, combine beer with 2 cups flour and mix
  6. Remove the onion rings from the buttermilk and allow the excess to drip off. Dredge in the dry flour mixture (shaking off any excess) and then dip in the beer batter allowing the extra to drip off.
  7. Once your choice of frying mechanism has heated the oil to 350 degrees place the batter coated rings into the batter. Do not overcrowd the pot or the temperature will drop and the rings will stick.
  8. When cooked to a nice golden brown remove from the oil and place on a paper towel lined pan.
  9. Repeat with remaining rings.
  10. So I served these rings to she who must be obeyed and I will admit it… I was afraid. But man o man sis she love them. These rings are so crisp and flavorful. They go great with my bacon cheeseburger. Thanks for stopping by and Life44… Live, Laugh, Love & Learn
