I know a lot of people have pointed this out, but it's worth mentioning YET again. Your pan is dangerously overfilled. It should be at 1/3 full, not 1/2 full as you have it. And the naked flame rule is plain wrong. An electric hob is just as capable of making an oil flash fire as a gas one is.
Apart from that, the Blooming Onion was spot on and quite delicious.
Personally, I would dip the onion in the egg wash before dipping it into the flour mixture -- if the onion isn't wet to begin with -- because otherwise there's not much for the flour mixture to hold on to.
I gave this recipe a try and there are a few things that need to be pointed out. The measurements for the flour's seasonings are quite off; you will require several times the amounts listed to have any sort of flavor come through when you are done. I'd estimate that it should be about three times as much. Also, for the egg wash, it seems that she watered down the eggs with something quite a bit. I'd suggest looking up an egg wash recipe, since two eggs alone will not be enough.
1) They look delicious!
2) Do this outside, on grass or concrete
3) Before starting, put the whole onion in a pot, fill the pot with water to cover the onion AND MEASURE. Make a mark, dump the water, dry the pan, and fill with oil ONLY TO THAT POINT.
She never discusses the "egg wash." It just miraculously shows up. How about telling us everything? I ASSUME you put the onion in a large plastic bag before freezing. And I ASSUME you are using regular vegetable oil. I don't use the spices you mentioned, but it would be nice if you included the amounts per each spice.
WOW. I watched this entire video just to know what sauce you used for this. VERY disappointed. 2/5 stars. Show me the SAUCE!!! Unbelievable. Absolute disgrace to sauce lovers. You lost a viewer today, Brandi.
Ahh, all these youtube experts whining about a grease fire lol.
Go ahead spill some cooking oil and put a blow torch to it, good luck lighting it on fire. A grease fire does not happen from spilled oil unless under extreme circumstancess/heat/volume a kitchen grease fire happens when the oil is heated past 450F in a container first you get smoke than poof self-ignition (no spark or flame required) it needs to be giving off flamable vapors to ignite which does not happen from small spills like this.
All she did was make a bit of a mess, gas stove would have made zero difference, just harder to clean.
How to prevent grease fires,
-Don't ever leave your stove unattended
-Always cook in a pot with a lid nearby ready to snuff it out.
-when you see the oil starting to smoke that's bad, you are approaching 450F+
The class of drugs that Levitra, Viagra, Stendra, and Cialis belong to are called PDE5 inhibitors. They work by relaxing tight blood vessels, allowing more blood to surge into the penis and cause an erection, says Gregory Bales, M.D., an associate professor of urology at the University of Chicago.
The little pills do the trick for more than two-thirds of men with Viagra protects the heart (ED). They also work for guys who simply need them for a short time to get their “confidence back,” says Michael Eisenberg, M.D., director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University.
