The last few times that my dear husband and I have gone to dinner, as a date, we have ordered Onion Rings. Man, we are addicted! The most recent ones we ordered we really superb. We loved every bite. I am dying to make them myself now.
Battered Onion Rings
adapted from: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/tyler-florence/tempura-battered-onion-rings-recipe.html
Oil, preferably corn
2 sweet onions, peeled and cut into thick rings
1 1/2 cups rice flour
1 T baking powder
1 T baking soda
1 egg yolk
1 cup beer
1/2 t salt
Heat oil to 350. In a mixing bowl combine dry ingredients. Whisk egg yolk in another bowl. Slowly add egg and beer (until it is as thick as pancake batter). Dip onions(after removing the slimy film between rings) flour then into batter. Fry until golden. Place on cooling rack (over a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper) to rest. Salt and pepper.
