Stay Home for a Steakhouse Supper: Sour Cream and Onion Rings

Make these as a side dish with Stay Home for Steakhouse Dinner: Steaks with French Onion Sauce and Stay Home for Steakhouse Supper: Roasted Garlic Creamed Spinach. Double-Baked Crazy-Crisp Oven Fries complement and complete the meal.


  • Vegetable oil or canola oil, for frying
  • 1 yellow-skin onion
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • About 1 cup buttermilk
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup chives, finely chopped
  • 1 1/2 cups flour, for dredging
  • undefined


Heat 2 inches of oil in a deep-sided pan over medium to medium-high heat. Cut the onios into 3/4-inch-thick to 1-inch-thick rings.

Whisk together the sour cream and buttermilk and season with salt, pepper and chives. Pour the flour into a shallow dish and season it with salt and pepper as well. Double-coat the rings in buttermilk and flour. Add the rings to the hot oil and fry to crispy and golden, a few rings at a time.
