2 Spanish onions, peeled and sliced 1/2-inch thick

6 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

1 tablespoon sugar

3 teaspoons salt

1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

2 tablespoons chives, chopped


  1. Pour the olive oil into a large skillet and place over high heat. Add the onions and garlic and cook, stirring to coat in oil.
