Craftsteak Onion Rings

A jolt of tangy whole grain mustard in the batter enlivens these onion rings, which Chef Tom Colicchio serves at his Craftsteak restaurants. Serve the crunchy, golden rings alongside our French Dip Panini (see related recipe at left).

really good
March 13, 2011
This was the first time I've ever tried beer batter frying. They were wonderful. Yes, they were a tad greasy, but they're onion rings, it's fried food. I wanted to make them the same day I read the recipe, so I let them sit in the buttermilk for about 6 hours not overnight. The onions were very tender and well cooked. They stayed crispy while I made subsequent batches. My only complaint is that it made way too many. I had five people for dinner, I only cut up one onion, and we had too much.

Great Tasting Rings
March 9, 2011
Attended a technique class and agree the rings were a little greasy, but the flavor was excellent. The oil needs to be at the correct temp. and allowed to reheat prior to subsequent batches. I will make these at home.

Craftsteak rings
March 6, 2011
Attended the technique class for these rings today. I found them to be greasy, and couldn't taste the mustard or the beer. They were very chrispy though. They need some sort of dipping sauce. What is the purpose of soaking in buttermilk?

The buttermilk contains acid that helps break down and soften the onions before they're cooked.
It's very important to maintain the proper temperature of the oil to avoid the greasy taste.
Craft's horseradish sauce or WS's smoked ketchup is perfect with these onion rings.
