  3. For the honey mustard sauce: In a small bowl, combine mustard, brown sugar, orange juice, honey and chili powder. Cover and refrigerate.
  4. For the onion rings: In a medium pan, heat oil to 400°.
  5. Combine flour, egg and beer until fully incorporated. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
