I'd like to make some homemade onion rings to go with some fresh venison steaks. I've made them before with mixed results. What is your favorite recipe ? Please list ingredients, type of oil, temperatures, etc. Thanks !

3 eggs 2 cups flour Salt Pepper Bread crumbs (you can also substitute crumbled up potato chips) LARD Grandpappy Deep Fat Fryer The secret is battering it right and LARD. Scramble your eggs up. Combine the rest of the dry ingredients. 1. Eggwash. 2. Flour dip 3. Eggwash 4. Flour dip 5. Eggwash 6. Flour dip 7. Drop into fryer. You can also do a blooming onion the same way. Just cut off the tops and bottoms of the onion and slice the onion (not all the way thru) into slivers so it all stays together. Soak the onions in cold water and they will open up some. Then just batter and fry. Same way for Granny's Southern Fried Chicken and Chicken Fried Steak...... For Chicken Fried Steak, get hamburger meat, make large patties and proceed with battering.

Beer batter is a wet batter. 1/2 bottle of beer (other half for yourself) and 1 cup of flour, salt and pepper. Dredge in batter, drop in hot lard for a few seconds and re-dip in batter then fry golden brown.

Slice up your onions (I like yellow and Vidalias) and put them in a big salad bowl with ice water. This keeps them crisp. In one bowl, flour, salt, pepper, a little red pepper. I like to add a little curry powder, too. In another bowl, a coupla three eggs, and a bloop of milk, mix it up. Get you frier going, set to 375*F. Check with a thermometer. Now pay attention to this little detail... if you drip the onions into the egg mix, a lot runs off because onions have an oily coating...like water on waxed paper. Dip the onions first into the flour, THEN into the egg mix, and back into the seasoned flour. Now drop them into the frier.
