These onion rings are coated in beer batter and deep fried until golden brown. Homemade onion rings are even better than what you’d get at a restaurant, and they also happen to be fun to make!
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
- 2 onions Vidalia, Maui or yellow
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour divided use
- 1 cup beer
- 1 3/4 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
- oil for frying
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
- Peel the onions and trim off the ends. Cut the onions crosswise into 1/2 inch thick slices. Separate the slices to create rings. Remove the smallest rings and reserve for a different use.
- Place the buttermilk in a large bowl. Add the onions and soak for one hour.
- Heat 3 inches of oil in a deep pot to 375 degrees F.
- Place 3/4 cup of flour in a bowl.
- In a medium bowl, mix together one cup of flour, beer, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
- Remove each ring from the buttermilk, letting the excess drip off. Coat each ring in flour, then dip the rings into the batter.
- Fry 6-8 rings at a time until golden brown, about 3-4 minutes.
- Repeat the process with the remaining onion rings.
- Sprinkle with parsley, then serve immediately.
