Simple Caramelized Onions

If you have the time to properly caramelize onions, the silky, luscious strands will more than pay you back for your effort. Learning how to caramelize onions means you’ve always got a flavor-rich, healthy condiment at the ready. Want to jazz up a burger? Add a layer of depth to mac and cheese? Swirl up a single serving of French onion soup? Make these onions once, and you’re going to want to keep a batch on hand all of the time.

How to Make It

Step 1

Slice onions in half then cut the halves vertically into thin slices.

Step 2

Add olive oil to a saute pan over medium heat. Add onions. Cook, stirring gently, until the onions start to soften. Season with salt and pepper. Reduce heat to medium-low.

Step 3

Continue to cook onions, stirring every few minutes. If they start to stick, add a splash of stock or water, and continue to stir. Cook until a deep golden brown, approximately one hour.
