Caramelized onions seem like a complete “no brainier”, but to have super tasty grilled onions, requires some seasoning and some patience. Caramelized onions are sweet, savory and delish. I serve them with burgers, tacos, sandwiches, and even with steak. They
2 yellow onions (Maui or Vidalia are good too)
2 Tablespoons olive oil
2-3 Tablespoons Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 Tablespoons Soy Sauce
Heat a skillet or grill pan on medium high heat. I set the temperature on my griddle to 350º. Add the olive oil. When hot, add the onions. Move the onions around and make sure they are coated with olive oil. Let the onions soften a bit this will take at least 10 minutes or more. Once the onions are soft and golden add the worcestershire sauce and soy sauce. Turn the heat down to medium and let the onions cook until brown and soft. The onions will sizzle and begin to soak up the sauces. Continue to cook the onions on a medium heat. Depending on how big your onions are, you might want to add more worcestershire and soy. How long they stay in the pan is personal preference. My family likes grilled onions that are really brown and done. Don’t try and blast the heat to rush them. If you keep the heat high, you will scorch the onions. Let the onions sweat and cook slowly. You want the onions to be caramelized not burnt.
