I love all things onion: onion soup, onion rings, onions on my hamburger. I could go on and on, like Bubba on Forrest Gump.
For tonight's dinner I wanted to cook a thick, juicy steak. I love sauteed mushrooms on my steak, but tonight, I wanted something different. ONION STRAWS.
This was so easy. Here are the ingredients:
Onion, sliced very thin
2 cups buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
To begin, slice your onion very thin. I am lucky to have a mandolin so I was able to slice the onion before I started crying!
Soak the onions in the buttermilk.
In a large pot, heat oil to 350 degrees. In the meantime, take the flour and add salt, pepper and a little cayenne pepper.
When the oil is hot, take the onions, shake off the buttermilk and dredge in the flour.
Fry in the oil until golden brown.
