Print Recipe


  • 2 large sweet onions
  • 2 cups flour divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon oregano
  • 1 cup beer of choice
  • 3 cups vegetable or blended oil
  • Coarse Sea Salt
  • Chipotle Aioli


  • Peel and discard the outer skin of the onion. Slice into 3/4 inch wide rings, set aside the centers (anything too small for an onion ring). Separate all rings from each other.
  • In a medium bowl combine 1 cup flour through oregano and whisk together. It will be a thick and pasty. Slowly whisk in beer. Place in the refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
  • In a large heavy frying pan, heat oil over medium-high heat. You can test the oil by dripping a small drop of batter into the oil, if it starts to float and sizzle, the oil is ready for frying. Also preheat oven to 250 degrees.
  • Dredge each onion ring in remaining 1 cup of flour and then in cold beer batter. Working in batches, place 4-10 onion rings in the oil, being careful not to crowd the pan too much. Cook for 6-8 minutes turning every 2-3 minutes to evenly brown. You don't want them to cook too fast otherwise the onion inside won't cook.
  • Remove each batch to a paper towel lined baking sheet. Sprinkle each batch with desired amount of sea salt after removing. Place them in the oven to stay warm until you complete frying all onion rings.
  • When you are through with all batches, serve with chipotle remoulade.
