How to Make Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles

Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles Ingredients

  • Frying oil
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour[1]
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper[3]
  • 2 cups pickle chips
  • Ranch dressing or horseradish sauce

Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles Recipe

  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or large deep pan until oil sizzles when a water drop is placed on top.
  2. Combine flour, salt, pepper, sugar and cayenne pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk to incorporate all the dry ingredients.[1]
  3. Drain the pickle chips to remove excess water. The pickles do not need to be completely dry as some moisture is needed for the battering process.
  4. Toss a portion of the pickle chips in the seasoned flour mixture until the pickle chips are well-coated with the flour.
  5. Transfer the pickle chips to a wire strainer. Shake to remove excess flour from the pickle chips.
  6. Carefully place the pickle chips in the hot oil. Cook for three to four minutes, or until the pickles float to the surface.
  7. Remove from oil and place on a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Transfer to a serving plate and serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.[3]

For best results, use a deep fryer. If you do not have a deep fryer, a deep pot will work, but the outcome will not be as crispy as the higher-temperature fryer fried pickles.

Brian Johnson from Texas Roadhouse recommends using peanut oil for frying. He also advises placing cooked pickles in the oven to keep them warm until you are ready to serve, and for chefs to keep an eye on thinner pickle chips as they will cook faster and are liable to burn. Make sure to allow time for the oil to reheat between batches of pickles.[3]

Tone down the saltiness by soaking the pickle chips in water for about 20 minutes, then draining the liquid. If needed, repeat the process to remove additional salt from the pickles. Continue with the battering the frying process as outlined in the Texas Roadhouse Fried Pickles recipe.
