Onion Strings

2 White Onions, thinly sliced
2 cups (16oz) Buttermilk
2 cups flour
1 Tablespoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Cayenne Pepper
Freshly ground Black Pepper, to taste

After slicing the onions, place them in a ziploc bag or an oblong cake pan. Pour the Buttermilk over the onions. Zip the bag closed or cover the cake pan and refrigerate for at least an hour.  Bring your Oil (4 cups of either vegetable oil or canola oil) up to temperature (375°) in a large pan.  When your oil is up to 375°, take a handful of onions, shake excess buttermilk off and dip into the flour mixture, shaking off excess flour. Put into the hot oil and fry for a few minutes, til golden brown. Remove to a pan lined with paper towels.

Make sure you do these in small batches (I used a 5qt Dutch Oven, with about 3" of oil and I had 5 batches), so as to not overcrowd the pan. This will keep the temperature from dropping and also give you the crispy onion strings you want!

Enjoy them with a Steak - on a Burger or as a snack!!
