5 Tbsp butter
2 large onions, thinly sliced
pinch of salt
pinch of sugar
In a saute pan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onions, sprinkle with salt and sugar, and toss in butter. Cook over medium heat, stirring occasionally, for about 20-30 minutes, or until desired color has been reached. If you noticed your onions are starting to brown on the edges, lower the heat. Notice how much they cook down!
FYI - I halved this recipe because I knew I was going to be the only one eating them.
The thinner you slice your onions, the quicker they will cook (but also your heat may need to be lower because they will brown before they caramelize)
Put caramelized onions on everything - pizza, salad, steak, green beans, any meat (or if your like me - anything).
