There is NO WAY you can carmelize onions properly in the short amount of time given in this recipe! I have used this recipe for many years and it takes about 45 minutes. item not reviewed by moderator and published
pretty good i added some sugar to help it caramelize faster but overall it was great item not reviewed by moderator and published
These were very good. I read the other comment about the missing sugar, so I took their advice and just tossed it in at the beginning. It made a quick and easy compliment to baked chicken. I'll be sure to use this again, especially the next time I make steak for dinner. item not reviewed by moderator and published
What about the sugar? I believe you should add it at the beginning to help in the caramelizing process, but the recipe never says what to do with it. item not reviewed by moderator and published
NEVER...in 15 years of catering...has it taken me 45 minutes to caramelize onions. Slice them thinner, add some sugar...you are doing something wrong :( item not reviewed by moderator and published
Any cook, chef, or caterer worth their salt says it takes an hour to properly caramlize onions. YOU must be doing something wrong. item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe I read called for sugar. Why do the comments question this? item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe I see calls for a pinch of sugar (which is all you need). Did they originally leave this out of the recipe, then revise it, or did people miss the ingredient? item not reviewed by moderator and published
The recipe above mentions a pinch of sugar, but not when to add it. You need a little more than a pinch and add it when you have the onions coated in melted butter. IMHO. item not reviewed by moderator and published
LindaButter seems to be a pompous jerk. Do your thing fellow kitchen adventurers and never let anyone make you feel dumb for asking questions or getting clarification. Not all of us can know everything about everything all of the time like she thinks she does. item not reviewed by moderator and published
