  • 3 tablespoons safflower oil
  • 2 1/2 pounds thinly sliced Vidalia onions
  • 1/2 cup mustard powder (from 2 containers)
  • 1 tablespoon salt

  • 1 cup pale ale


  1. Heat a large skillet over high heat. Add safflower oil, and swirl to coat. Reduce heat to medium. Cook Vidalia onions, stirring often, until very soft, about 30 minutes.

    On the broadcast, Calder commented how the addition of dry mustard seemed to thicken the sauce into a creamy consistency. I think that this might have been the time to mention that mustard, particularly dry, but also prepared mustards, are incredible emulsifier, due to the high concentration of lecithin. A touch of mustard can stabilize the vinegar and oil in a vinaigrette, bring toget her melted butter and lemon, anything that otherwise would separate.

    I made this thinking I'd use it as a condiment and realized I needed a vegie side so threw in frozen corn OMG! it was delicious. So mostly corn with the addition of the onion mustard (so to speak)!
