Onion Rings Recipe

Serves 4-6 as an accompaniment

Prep time | 5 minutes
Cooking time | 10 minutes

Onion Rings | For best results when deep frying I always recommend the use of a deep fryer. They are thermostatically controlled so the oil is always at the right temperature. When frying at the correct temperature only small amounts of oil are absorbed into the food. You can use a frying thermometer in a saucepan too, but it is harder to keep the oil at the correct temperature and adjustments will need to be made throughout the cooking time.


• 1 cup plain flour
• 1 1/3 cups (330ml) beer
• 2 large brown onions
• Vegetable oil, for frying
• Sea salt flakes


1. Place the flour into a bowl and make a well in the centre. Pour the beer in, stirring until well mixed.

2. Slice the onions a little less than 1cm thick, and separate the slices out into individual rings.

3. Half fill a medium sized saucepan or a deep fryer with vegetable oil and bring to a temperature of 190°C. Dip each onion ring into the batter and drop into hot oil. Working quickly, place 4-6 in the oil at a time – they will float. Fry for 1-2 minutes and then flip them over and fry for a further 1-2 minutes or until golden brown.

4. Remove from the oil, drain on paper towel and sprinkle with sea salt. Repeat with the rest of the onion rings and serve with steak or burgers.
