These steak house onion rings are light, crispy, and packed with flavor. A true Loon Favorite! We absolutely love these Steak House Onion Rings! Perfect as a side for a burger or steak, or an killer-good appetizer!
- 2 or 3 large onions ends cut off, and then sliced into 1/8 inch rings
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp Kosher salt
- 2 tsp smoked paprika
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
- Vegetable oil for frying
Place onion rings into a bowl and cover with buttermilk.
Cover with plastic and place in the fridge for 1 hour (or up to 24 hours).
Stir flour, salt, paprika, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper in another large bowl.
Add the onion to the flour mixture and toss to coat. If you prefer extra crispy onion rings, do a double dredge (add the coated rings back into the buttermilk then dredge in flour again).
Place oil in a large, heavy saucepan to a depth of about 3 inches, or heat your deep fryer, to 365° F.
Working in smaller batches, shake excess flour off onions, and cook in hot oil until golden brown and crispy, about 2 minutes per batch.
Transfer onions to paper towels.
Season with a little more salt (if desired) and serve immediately! Delicious served with Kickin' Remoulade!
