Ingredients

How to make it

  • In a deep stockpot or deep-fryer, preheat oil to 360 degrees F.
  • Place 1/2 cup of the flour and the cayenne pepper in a resealable plastic bag or paper bag and set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, combine the remaining flour, the baking powder, cornstarch, salt, and white pepper. Whisk in Guinness until smooth.
  • Place the onion rings in the bag containing the flour mixture and toss to coat well. Working in batches, transfer the floured onion rings to the beer batter, making sure that each ring is thoroughly coated with the batter. Remove the rings from the batter and allow excess batter to drip off from the onion rings and immediately place in the preheated oil. Fry, in batches, until golden brown, turning rings as needed, about 2 to 3 minutes per batch. Remove the onion rings, place on a paper towel-lined plate, and season with salt. Repeat with remaining onion rings. Serve hot.

    Guinness and Battering? Did anyone report this????
    Hey Vickie Pal: These sound luscious. Bam!! I was breezing through looking for a battering for some fish I bought today and ran into this recipe. So dinner will be the onion rings and an unbattered fish. I'm off for my ONE of my favorite liquids-Guinness~~~Sas

    Although Onion Rings are not an Italian food...I say... "Mangia, Mangia"! My family will inhale these!
    Thanks, Vickie.
    Throw up your hand for me, and catch this High 5! Flagged beautiful as well.
    Thanks! Great recipe.

    Nice one !! Not surprising if it was Emeril Inspired ! I love cooking with beer especially Souts as the yeast give a bitter taste that is quite challenging to deal with but the sweetness and aroma of the onion will take care of it! I will definitely try this one and i'm sure it will become a classic during the Super Ball :)

    Ordinary onion rings will never be the same thrill as these tasty morsels. The extra cayenne adds a great Kick.
    I do exactly as you do and let the finished onion rings sit in a single layer on folded out paper bags on a sheet pan. Are you looking over my shoulder?
    You have my 5 Vickie
