It’s time to share some recipes that are good to serve on St. Patrick’s Day. I have some fun recipes up my sleeve and I will start with Beer Batter Onion Rings. Delicious fried Onion Rings made with Killian’s Red Ale beer batter.

Like I said above, I have a few beer recipes for you in the upcoming week that I hope you will love. I have these Beer Battered Onion Rings, I have Guinness Glaze and Chocolate Stout bread coming your way. There are also so many wonderful St. Patrick’s Day ideas floating around from my fellow bloggers. Many green recipes, corned beef recipes, Bailey’s Irish cream and beer recipes. I can’t wait to see them at our weekly party and I hope that you will come back to check them out on Saturdays.

Another piece of news before I share the recipe… I’m bringing Food Fight back!! I know that it’s been three long months, but I got so busy with holiday stuff and things got crazy. Things are still a bit crazy but I missed my food fights. It will still be on the first of each month, which will be this Saturday, March 1st. Upcoming battle will be between Guinness and Irish Cream Recipes! Get ready…

Beer Batter for Onion Rings

For these onion rings, you should definitely try my Cheddar Ale Dip. This dip is amazing, cheesy and also made with red ale. The combination of the two is perfect to celebrate the upcoming holiday. (Psst…this would also be perfect for Father’s day lunch!)

If you don’t feel like making the cheese dip, try these onion rings with ranch, honey mustard, BBQ sauce, whiskey sauce or plain and simple. There is enough wonderful flavor in them to not need anything at all.

Beer Batter Onion Rings
 
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 1 cup of red ale
  • 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and a little pepper
  • 1 large onion
  • 3-4 cups of oil (vegetable or canola) for frying
Instructions
  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk flour and beer together until smooth.
  2. Whisk in Worcestershire sauce, salt and pepper. Taste the batter to make sure you have enough salt.
  3. Cover and set aside for about 30 minutes (if you have the patience).
  4. Slice the onions into thick rings. Pat them dry from the onion juice.
  5. Preheat the oil in a sauce pot (or in a frier) on medium-high heat. (Do not use a shallow pot so that you minimize the splatter.)
  6. Dip the onion rings into the batter and slowly add them to the hot oil. Fry until they are golden brown. Lay the cooked onion rings onto a paper towel to soak up excess oil.
  7. Check out my Cheddar Ale Dip, it would go perfectly with these onion rings.

  1. Now that is some serious comfort food! You did a fantastic job with the prep work shots – the lighting and clarity is amazing! I think I could handle a plate of these, no problem ;)

  2. Lyuba, loving how you incorporated this beer in with this beautiful batter. They look absolutely amazing!

  3. I just found your blog for the first time from a link party at Rattlebridge Farm… these onion rings look amazing! I’ll definitely be making them and sharing with my own friends — i’m a sucker for deep fried apps. ;-) Come visit my new blog if you have a chance — I could use some new blogging friends!

  4. We aren’t alcohol drinkers. What would you recommend as a substitute?

    • Hi Katie,
      If you substitute anything other than beer, it will be regular batter. You can always use buttermilk. If you are worried about alcohol, alcohol actually cooks out. If you are still not comfortable, use buttermilk :)

  5. Seriously!!!! I opened this in my inbox with the hubs standing behind me. He had a few choice words when he saw the pic- because……..now we HAVE TO make them!!! :) YUUUUUMMMM!!!!!!!!!! You found my weakness – fried food. Oh my!!

  6. Lyuba, these onion rings look amazing! I am definitely going to try these – thank you so much for sharing at Best of the Weekend! Pinning! Have a happy Sunday and a fabulous week!

  9. Wow, Lyuba, these are so mouth watering and your photography is stunning! Onion rings are a favourite of mine and this recipe is definitely be saved. Thanks so much!

  10. Wow these look sinful!!!

  11. These look PERFECT! I love onion rings but have only made them once at home….can’t WAIT to try these!

  12. I do love onion rings but have never made them at home! Yours look perfect!

  13. So you used millions for the beer then? Any other suggestions?

    • I use Killians, yeap. You can use another Ale. I would suggest something dark, like ale or lager, with a lot of flavor. You don’t want to use anything like a Bud, not much beer flavor from those.
      Enjoy, Killie!
