Tomato Onion Stew

This relish-like condiment makes a wonderful accompaniment to Miss Lamie's Fried Chicken or a plain roast or grilled meat, adding color along with a tangy, acidic flavor. From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

Source: Mad Hungry, September 2010


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 medium onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 5 medium tomatoes, cut lengthwise into eighths
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons coarse salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper


  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the oil and swirl to coat the pan. Add the onions and saute until translucent and soft, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir for another minute.

  2. Add the tomatoes and cook until soft and the juice is slightly evaporated, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir in the salt and pepper. You can serve the mixture hot or cold. It will keep in the refrigerator for about 1 week.
