After the burnt caramelized onions from last week, I decided I needed to come up with a method to make caramelized onions. And I figured that I’d post it here. I’m sure everyone out there has a way they do this, but this is what worked for me.
One Year Ago: Peanut Butter Brownies
1 onion, cut in half, then sliced
1/2 Tbsp olive oil
Place olive oil in a 8" skillet with a lid. Turn heat on medium. Once the oil is warm, add the sliced onion.
Put a lid on the skillet. After about 2 minutes, give the onions a quick stir. If they are starting to brown/burn, turn the heat down a bit. Put the lid back on and set the timer for 5 minutes.
The onions should be soft, but not brown at this point. Remove the lid and stir the onions.
Add a pinch of salt to the onions. Continue to cook without the lid for another 10-15 minutes until caramelized completely.
