  • 2 large red onions
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • Coarse salt and ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine onions, cut into 8 wedges each (trim core if pieces won't separate), thyme, and olive oil. Season with coarse salt and ground pepper; toss to combine.

  2. Cover and cook over medium-low, stirring occasionally, until onions release their moisture, 30 to 35 minutes.

  3. Reduce heat to low; leave cover on, and cook onions until golden, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.

  4. Stir in balsamic vinegar; cook until syrupy, 1 to 2 minutes.
