In preparing the onion rings maintain the oil at 350º F during cooking.  If the temperature drops below 350º then the onion rings take longer to cook and tend to absorb too much oil.  Plus they don’t get crisp like they should.  Try and prepare the steak and the onion rings at the same time.  If you can’t do that then have the onion rings ready to fry as soon as those delicious steaks come off of the grill.

INGREDIENTS

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

1/2 Cup Cornstarch

1 Tablespoon Ground Red Chile Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cayenne

1 Teaspoon Ground Cumin

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper

1 Quart Vegetable Oil (For Deep Frying)

4 Large Thinly Slices Onions (Rings Separated)

In a large size bowl combine the flour, cornstarch, red chile powder, cayenne, cumin, kosher salt and pepper.  Pour the oil into a saucepan or deep-fryer and bring the heat to 350º F. Put the onion rings into the flour mixture and coat.  Gently shake off any excess.  Using tongs carefully put some of the coated onions into the hot oil.  Fry for 2 to 3 minutes until golden and crispy.  Remove from the oil and place on paper towels to drain.  Do this in 3 or 4 batches until all are fried.  Season with additional kosher salt if you like.  Serve warm.  Serves 4
