Lonestar Steakhouse Texas Rose Recipe

  1. Peel the very outer layer off of the onion. Chop the bottom off.
  2. Slice the onion into sections about 3/4-inch wide, stopping about 1/2-inch before the bottom so that the base of the onion is intact and holds all the "petals" together.[5]
  3. Place the onion in a bowl of cold water, and let sit for about 20 minutes or until the petals begin to separate.
  4. Drain and dry well with a towel.
  5. Heat oil in a large saucepan or dutch oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  6. Mix eggs, beer and milk into a shallow bowl.
  7. Mix flour, baking powder and spices into another shallow bowl.
  8. Dredge the onion in the wet mixture, coating evenly.
  9. Dredge the onion into the dry mixture. Shake off any excess.
  10. Set the onion into the oil carefully, using a wire basket to avoid splashing hot oil.
  11. and fry for about 10 minutes until golden brown, turning once.[6]
  12. Place the fried onion on paper towels to drain the excess oil. Serve.

How to Make a Bloomin' Onion

A demonstration of the cutting technique used for the Lone Star Steakhouse Texas Rose as well as Outback's Bloomin' Onion


  • If Vidalia onions are not available, any type of sweet, white onion will do.
  • For a quick dip, mix one part mayonnaise with one part sour cream. Add a dash of chili powder or any other desired spices.[5] Make the sauce in advance and chill in the refrigerator while cooking for a more flavorful taste.
  • For added flavor, salt the onion after frying.
  • If you want to serve the fried onion with the dipping sauce in the center, just as servers do at Lone Star Steakhouse, simply pull the center petals open a bit wider after cooking. Mix the sauce and place it in a small sauce cup. Set the sauce in the middle of the fried Texas Rose.[6]
