  • servings: 14

Ingredients

  • 3 pounds red and white onions (about 15 small onions)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Peel the onions, and trim roots, leaving enough to keep onion intact. Cut them lengthwise in halves or quarters, depending on their size.

  2. Step 2

    Place in a large skillet with butter, sugar, salt, pepper, and enough water to come halfway up sides of onions. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce to medium-low, and cook, covered, until the onions are tender, about 20 minutes. Uncover, raise the heat to medium, and cook, stirring occasionally until caramelized, 30 to 40 minutes.
