Sautéed Onions

NotesMagazine

Recipe Notes

  • When sauteing more than one onion, avoid crowding them in the pan.

Our Onion Magazine features this recipe:

Ingredients

1
medium onion, sliced or chopped
1 teaspoon
oil, margarine, or butter

Directions

1. Heat oil in a wide bottomed skillet or pan over medium-high heat.

2. Add chopped or sliced onion and cook, stirring frequently, until desired softness and color are reached. Reduce the heat as needed to prevent burning.

  • 3-5 minutes – onions will be crisp-tender and a clear white
  • Longer cooking will start to brown the onions. They will become softer and sweeter.
  • Cooking for a long time (30 minutes or more) at a lower heat will turn onions a rich golden brown.

3. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • When sauteing more than one onion, avoid crowding them in the pan.
