Throughout Australia, beer-battered onion rings are a common snack you can find being enjoyed by those of all ages. You can find them on fairgrounds, cinemas, and corner stores. This tasty fried treat can be a satisfying experience for your taste buds, but how are beer battered onion rings made? Let’s take a dive into the creative process to gain an understanding of how the delicious onion rings are brought to life.
It all begins with the batter mixture. To make a standard beer-battered onion ring, you will need:
Â· Â cup of flour
Â· 1 egg
Â· Â tablespoon of salt
Â· Â tablespoon of black pepper
Â· 1/3 cup of your favorite lager beer (let’s get tipsy)
Â· 1 onion, cut into Â inch-thick slices.
First, you want to combine all of the dry ingredients together in one bowl. Then, whisk the egg and add it to the mixture. Next, pour your beer onto this mixture while continuously whisking it until it is nice and smooth.
Once you have your batter ready, it’s time to get cooking! Heat up oil in a deep-fryer or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat (the temperature of the oil should be somewhere between 350 and 375 degrees). Place your freshly cut onion rings into the hot oil and let them cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until they are lightly golden brown. Once your onion rings appear to be lightly fried, take them out of the oil and let them sit for a minute so that all of the excess oil can drip off before you place them in your A&T Trading beer battered onion rings.
Once they’ve sat long enough, place each ring into your batter mixture one at a time. Flip each ring so that both sides are coated with batter, then gently shake off the excess mixture before placing them into your hot oil for about another 3-4 minutes or until they are golden brown. Keep in mind that the thicker your rings are cut, the longer these delicious treats will have to fry to get done just right.
When your onion rings have reached a nice golden brown color, take them out of the oil and place them onto a tray lined with paper towels or a dish rack so that they can continue to drain. Don’t forget to season these tasty treats with salt and pepper while they’re still hot! Once all of your onion rings have been fried, you can enjoy these crispy morsels by themselves or with your favorite dipping sauce. With this easy guide, you’ll have tasty onion rings ready for yourself whenever you like. Let us know how they turn out!
