Sweet Onion Puree

  • ACTIVE: 20 MIN

Creamy long-cooked onions, a simplified version of classic French onion soubise, are an ideal accompaniment to the savory rack of pork, but they're also great with duck or any other poultry.

  1. 2 thyme sprigs
  2. 1 bay leaf
  3. 1 1/2 teaspoons whole black peppercorns
  4. Pinch of crushed red pepper
  5. 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  6. 4 medium onions, coarsely chopped
  7. 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  8. 1 small baking potato, peeled and cut into large dice
  9. 2 tablespoons dry white wine
  10. 1 1/2 teaspoons sherry vinegar
  11. Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  1. Wrap the thyme, bay leaf, peppercorns and crushed pepper in a piece of cheesecloth and secure with kitchen string. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Add the onions, garlic, potato, wine and the herb bundle and bring to a simmer over moderately high heat. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the onions are very soft, about 2 1/2 hours.
  2. Drain the vegetables, reserving the cooking liquid; discard the herb bundle. Transfer the vegetables to a food processor and puree with 2 tablespoons of the cooking liquid and the vinegar. Pass the puree through a sieve, then transfer to a bowl, season with salt and ground black pepper and serve warm.
Make Ahead The puree can be refrigerated for 2 days. Rewarm over low heat. Serve With Pork Rib Roast with Sweet Onion Puree and Crisp Sage Tempura.
