Beer Battered Onion Rings

A plate of fried onion rings.Wow these are soo good, lol. At first I thought, "hey I can go on the Internet and find an awesome recipe for these", but a lot of the recipes had buttermilk, or breadcrumbs. The catch? I did NOT have any of these things :( So I thought I might just wing it! And I am soooo glad I did, these are soo good and easy.


And guess what? No breadcrumbs, or buttermilk is needed to make these beauties awesome:)

Note: Add salt once they are done, because it really does make them like a thousand times better;) I used garlic salt, you can get it anywhere at any spice section in a store.

  1. Okay so get all of your ingredients together, including a big bowl and plate.
  2. Ingredients for making beer battered onion rings.
  3. Now add one cup of flour to your plate and set aside for later.
  4. A plate of flour for breading onion rings.

  5. Next add the other cup of flour to your bowl. Then put the cayenne pepper, garlic powder, pepper, and cumin in there.
  6. Adding flour to a bowl.
    Adding spices to the flour.

  7. Next take your egg and beat it, then add it to the bowl too.
  8. Mixing eggs in a bowl.
    Adding eggs to the flour mixture.
  9. Now add the beer;) Mix this all until there's no more clumps in it.
  10. Adding beer to the flour mixture.
    Mixing the batter for onion rings.
  11. Okay now take the vegetable oil and put enough in your pan or pot till it comes to about 2 1/2 to 3 inches deep. Turn the heat on high, and leave it there for about 5 mins then check how hot it is. I used a cast iron skillet and I ended up using the whole bottle of oil, so your gonna need a lot:)

  13. Okay so while the oil is heating up, cut the onions and separate them. You want them pretty thick but no more then 1/2 an inch to 1 inch thick.
  14. A cutting board full of cut onion rings.
  15. Okay now take that plate of flour you set aside and coat the onions in it.
  16. Dredging onion rings in flour.
  17. Now put the onion in the beer mixture and make sure that their completely covered with it
  18. Dredging onion rings in batter.
  19. Now put the onions in the oil. By now the oil has gotten hot enough to where by the time you have coated one onion in the two mixtures the onions that were cooking are already done. So when you go to put more in, it's more than likely the previous ones are done;)

    Hopefully that makes sense lol!
