Thread: Onion Rings

  1. #1
    Onion Rings

    As I live on the Chesapeake Bay of the Eastern Shore of Va, I have no need for the many recipes for crab cakes offered on a previous thread as I am quite satisfied with my own. However, I was nevertheless quite impressed with the culinary knowledge of many of those responding to the request…so much so, that I would like to make a request of my own.I have difficulty preparing edible onion rings.

    I’ve traveled over much of the U.S. and in many foreign countries and for the most part I've found that the onion rings served in many restaurants (and in most recipes) are heavy, breaded rings that smother the taste of onions in hard, crust like enclosures and are usually so spiced that the taste of the onion is barely discernable. So c’mon all you HVAC Jocks that are wannabe chefs…enlighten me with your onion ring recipes that will match those crab recipes.

    Being from the east coast and raised in connecticut I have to say the BEST onion rings/french fries(American fries) are at JIMMIES of Savin Rock, in West Haven Ct. Every year I take one of my weeks vacation to go back to Ct. to visit friends and relatives and that place is always one of my stops!Well worth the 950mi. trip.

    Basic Onion Rings

    INGREDIENTS
    1 quart oil for frying, or as needed
    2 cups all-purpose flour
    2 teaspoons salt, divided
    2 teaspoons ground black pepper, divided
    3 egg whites
    1 cup milk
    1 tablespoon white vinegar
    3 large sweet onions, peeled and sliced into thick rings

    DIRECTIONS:
    1. Heat the oil in a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat, or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    2. Place the flour in a shallow baking pan, and stir in 1 teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon of pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg whites, milk, vinegar, and remaining salt and pepper until frothy.
    3. Dip the onion rings in the wet ingredients then into the flour mixture until coated. Then dip in the egg white mixture again, and then into the flour again.
    4. Fry onion rings in the hot oil a few at a time so they are not crowded, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and serve immediately.



    Regards.........
