Let's talk about onions.
Wait. Are you still with me? Look, I know onions aren't sexy. And onion breath is especially not sexy. But you're going to want to stick around for this one. Trust me.
Caramelized onions combine the spikiness of onions with sugar and a little acid to make something meltingly better than the sum of its parts. They also keep in the refrigerator for a week and make a great addition to an otherwise blah meal. Also, these babies are so mellow that they won't even give you onion breath.
Perfect Caramelized Onions
1 tbsp. dark brown sugar
1/4 tsp. white wine vinegar
1 onion, either white or yellow
Melt the butter over medium heat in a large skillet. Add the onion, brown sugar and vinegar and sauté for approximately 25 minutes, or until the onion is golden brown. Stir every couple of minutes to ensure that the onions don't stick. You'll know the onions are done when they are limp and have a deep caramel color. Don't take them off too soon.
