This is by far one of the better beer batter recipes out there. I did end up adding more beer to give mine more of a pancake batter type of consistancy, and if you don't have a favorite dipping sauce, you'll want to add something more for flavor. I ended up using some Walla Walla sweet onions and it turned out great!
One tip... rather than drudging the onion before dipping it, I just threw my sliced onions in a gallon size bag with the flour and gave them all a good shake at the same time, it really cut down the mess.
Ok, maybe my onions were too big?
This is wonderful recipe. The batter must be of pancake batter consistancy. So add extra beer as needed.
Recipe as written is good. But on our second batch we decided to add some spices to see if it would make them more flavorfull. We really enjoyed them better with the spices. We added some paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, red pepper, extra salt.
absolute decadence! the batter was like fine gold!
i had to keep adding more beer to the batter- i guess it couldn't handle our Canadian brew EH? this recipe will be a keeper when in the mood for artery clogging food!!
This works well, I ended up dipping them in flour, then batter, then flour again, then batter again, and they came out beautifully crunchy. First time frying onions; next time would use more spices in the flour/batter/both :)
Best. Onion Rings. Ever.
LOVED EM! Thank you for this easy delicious recipe! I had to add more beer like the others but boy was it worth it. I'm embarrassed to admit that I didn't have enough onion so I dunked a turkey sandwich in the batter and deep fried it like a Bennigans Monte Cristo. And it was soooooo good. I think I've fulfilled my fried food quota for the next six months after what I ate today!
Delicious! I would make it again. It is light and crispy, and addictive...thanks!
I have to admit, I was afraid to make these...I hadn't deep-fried anything before, but these turned out fabulous! Easy easy easy to make. I did use about twice the amount of beer than called for. I used Heineken but I think the next time, I will use Nut Brown Ale, as the beer flavor didn't come through very strong. No leftovers, it all went fast and now they are having me make more this week! **Update** I made them again with Newcastle Nut Brown Ale and you could taste the beer more, it had a deeper flavor. I will make them with the Nut Brown Ale from now on.
