Kent Rollins is a real cowboy. He grew up wrangling cattle in Oklahoma and became a chuck wagon cook. In addition to catering and selling cookbooks, he still feeds cowboys at ranch gatherings. Rollins enjoys teaching folks about a traditional way of life. Here, he shares his secret for crispy onion rings. You'll find the printed recipe at his site. Now, you might think that a "traditional way of life" wouldn't include onion rings and ingredients like panko crumbs, but cowboys do exist in the 21st century, and there's no reason they can't eat the good stuff.
You might also think that watching someone cook onion rings pales in comparison with eating onion rings, but this video is not only informative, it will inspire you to make some onion rings yourself. There are enough ingredients involved in Rollin's recipe that you have to make a lot of onion rings to justify it. More power to ya. -via Digg
