This recipe was created when I was working on the beet and oranges recipe a month ago. Not only were they fantastically incorporated into that recipe, these onions are perfect as a topping for sandwiches, hotdogs, hamburgers, or pork chops. Serve them cooled with the sauce as a dressing over romaine for a salad, or chop the onions fine and you have a sweet relish that can be used in meatloaf. You can even serve it as a side dish alone. They truly are sweet enough for children to eat.
Sweet Bourbon Braised Red Onions
- 1 medium red onion, halved and sliced
- 1/2 red wine vinegar
- 3 T honey (or agave)
- 1/2 cup bourbon
- Very simple: add the sliced onion, red wine vinegar, honey, and bourbon to a sauce pan or skillet over medium heat.
- Allow to simmer for approximately 7 minutes, to reduce. Toss regularly as to not brown the onions.
- Serve the onions as a topping and the sauce as a dressing as desired. You can double the vinegar, honey, and bourbon for additional sauce as needed.
