Onion Rings Resting in the Flour

Onion Rings Resting in the Flour

Oh GOODNESS. I had to toss out the rest of the batch after I tasted one, well two, or I would’ve eaten every single one!  Try this recipe once; you’ll never order rings out again, promise!  15 minutes start to mouth, guaranteed!

1 large sweet onion, sliced crosswise 1/4″ thick
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour, divided
1/2 cup plus 1 Tbs rice flour
1 1/2 t kosher salt
1/2 t baking soda
1 cup Bud Light, or other light beer
1/2 cup Vodka
Vegetable Oil for frying

Frying in the Pan

Frying in the Pan

Separate onion slices into rings.
In bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup of all purpose flour, rice flour, salt, and baking soda.
Whisk in beer and vodka until smooth.
Place remaining flour in shallow bowl.
Dredge onion rings through flour, shaking off excess flour, transferring rings to large bowl.
Carefully pour batter mixture over floured onion rings, just enough to coat.
In large frying pan, heat 2 inches oil on high.
Working in batches and using tongs, lift onion rings from batter, allowing excess to drip off.
Place in oil and fry until golden brown, about 3 minutes per batch, no need to turn.
Drain on paper towels.
Sprinkle lightly with salt and pepper.
Serve warm or room temperature.

Ahhh!  The Finished Product.
