Balsamic-Glazed Red Onions

  • ACTIVE: 15 MIN

A road trip Mary Ellen Carroll took with her grandfather inspired this sweet red-onion condiment. You'll know the onions are done when they are very tender and their juices are syrupy. Don't overcook the onions or the sweetness will be cloying. Carroll slathers any leftovers on slices of buttered baguette.

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  3. 2 large red onions, halved and thinly sliced
  4. 1 cup water
  5. 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  6. 3 tablespoons sugar
  7. 1 rosemary sprig
  8. Kosher salt
  1. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter in the olive oil. Add the onions and cook over moderate heat until softened, about 7 minutes. Add the water, balsamic vinegar, sugar and rosemary and season with salt. Cover partially and simmer over low heat until tender, about 30 minutes. Uncover the onions and simmer until the juices are syrupy, about 15 minutes longer. Discard the rosemary and serve warm.
Make Ahead The onions can be refrigerated overnight. Reheat gently.
