Beer-Battered Onion Rings

I just made the most fantastic onion rings. Disregard my other onion rings post, this version blows the other recipe out of the hot oil!

If you’re like me and can’t stand to throw things out that are slightly past their prime, this is a perfect use for the beer that’s been sitting in your fridge since February 2009. Make sure that you don’t overcook these rings. In fact, I recommend undercooking them just a bit. The batter gets more crispy the longer it fries. Also, cut your rings thick. Skinny rings just can’t stand up to this batter!

Beer-battered Onion Rings

  • Vegetable oil, about 3 inches deep in a pot
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/3 cup beer
  • Pinch each of Salt and Pepper
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 T paprika
  • 1 large onion, cut into thick rings

In a deep pot, heat oil to 360 degrees.  Mix all ingredients except onion and stir together until smooth.  Dredge the onions through the batter, coating evenly, then drop into the hot oil.  Fry until a light brown, turning if necessary.  Drain on paper towels.

Serves 2
