Pronto Caramelized Onions | Tuesday's Tip of the Day!
Whether looking to make a French onion soup that even your great grandmother would be proud of or simply wanting to adorn your All-American Sliders (of course I have a killer recipe for that), I have you covered! And if you fret the tears from slicing those gnarly onions, I have you covered too (Cutting an Onion without the Tears Featured in Tuesday’s Tip of the Day!)
Let’s get caramelizing!
- In a medium size skillet or Dutch oven, add a splash (1 – 2 tablespoons) of olive oil and butter (1 tablespoon) and allow the oil to heat and butter to foam, approximately 1 – 2 minutes. Add thinly sliced yellow onions (1 yellow onion should do it for a small crowd) and cook while occasionally stirring until soft and golden brown in color, approximately 4 – 6 minutes. If the pan gets too dry, add more oil!
- From here, depending on your desired use, you can either remove and serve as is or if making sweet onion marmalade, for example…
- While keeping the onions in the pan, add white wine (1/4 cup for 1 yellow onion) and using a wooden spoon, scrape the bottom to deglaze the pan.
- Once dry, add brown sugar (about 1 tablespoon) and continue to cook while stirring until soft and caramelized, approximately 30 seconds – 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and serve.
