I wanted to do steak sandwiches and decided to try making some caramelised onions like those I had in cafes. A quick google search showed that I only needed a few simple ingredients to make it. Most recipes needed apple cider vinegar but I replaced it with rice vinegar as I couldn’t find any in the kitchen. It resulted in a very yum relish anyway so I think the recipe basically just needed an acidic touch from any type of vinegar. Not all recipes call for butter but I thought that will make it taste better! Heh!
3 large brown onions sliced thinly
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 tbsp butter (optional)
1) Heat up some cooking oil in a small pot and add the sliced onions.
2) Cook until slightly golden brown and add in a few dashes of salt, the brown sugar and vinegar.
3) Stir occasionally under medium fire for 10-15 minutes until the onions are further softened. Stirring is important so the onions do not stick to the bottom of the pot.
4) When onions are caramelised and soft, add in the butter and stir for a few minutes before removing it from heat.
Now you are ready to add this your sandwiches!
