How to make it

  • In a Dutch oven heat oil to 350 degrees F.
  • Dip Sauce
  • In a food processor combine sour cream, mayonnaise, sun-dried tomatoes, red bell peppers, lime juice, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, 1 teaspoon salt, white wine and minced garlic, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  • Cut onions 1/2-inch thick, remove dark exterior of onions, separate into rings and soak in buttermilk for 1 - 6 hours.
  • Combine 1 cup of flour, remaining salt, pepper, and garlic, mix thoroughly. In a medium bowl combine beer and 1 cup of flour, mix thoroughly. If you like some kick add some cayanne pepper at this step.
  • Remove onion rings from buttermilk, shake off excess, dredge in flour, shake off excess, then dip in beer batter. Drop some onion rings in canola or peanut oil and continue process, being sure not to crowd rings as they will stick together. When golden, remove, salt to taste and let drain on paper towels.
  • Enjoy!

    Soaking them in buttermilk is a great idea! Also loving the dipping sauce. I will try these soon - this is perfect for a Sunday afternoon cooking project with my daughters!
