Today I have a fun secret recipe that will show you how easy it is to make one of Texas Roadhouse’s most popular appetizers. Many steakhouses offer some kind of fried onion appetizer and at Texas Roadhouse they are known for their Cactus Blossom.
They take a jumbo-sized onion and slice it to create onion petals that are coated in a seasoned batter and deep fried. In the end, it looks like the onion has blossomed open to reveal all the yummy crispy petals within. They serve it with a spicy dipping sauce that is out of this world. I make this zesty sauce often as it is also a great dip for french fries and tater tots.
Sweet Vidalia onions work best with this recipe and can often be found in larger sizes. One extra large onion will make enough for 4-6 people, but if you’re only cooking for 2, a small onion is all you’ll need.
New Secret Recipe
1 extra large onion
Chili-Horseradish Dipping Sauce:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup prepared chili sauce
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 tablespoons horseradish sauce
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons paprika
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoons garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
3/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 1/2 cups cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic salt
12 ounces beer
Mix mayonnaise, sour cream, chili sauce, cayenne pepper and horseradish sauce in a medium mixing bowl until well combined. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Heat the oil in a deep fryer or large stock pot to 375-400 degrees Fahrenheit.
Prepare the seasoned flour mix by combining flour with garlic powder, paprika, sugar and pepper in a large mixing bowl. Whisk seasonings and flour to incorporate well.
Slice 3/4 inch off the root end of the onion.
Make 12-16 slices into the trimmed end working in a clockwise manner. Do not cut completely through the onion, leaving about an inch of uncut onion near the opposite root end.
Remove about 1 inch of the center petals from each onion.
Toss the onions in the seasoned flour to coat well. Peel back the petals slightly to allow the flour to reach between each petal, but do not remove.
Combine remaining flour, paprika, pepper, cornstarch, salt, garlic salt and beer in a second large mixing bowl. Whisk well until smooth.
Dip the floured onion in the batter. Allow excess batter to drip off the onion.
Use a fryer basket to carefully place the battered onions, one at a time, into the hot oil. Cook for about 90 seconds, flip and cook for an additional 90 seconds.
Place on a serving platter and insert the cup of dipping sauce in the center of the onion.
