EasyPreparation time: 5 minutesCooking time: 20 minutesServes 4
Ingredients:3 large onions3- 4 tablespoons vegetable oil¼ cup port or orange juice - you can also use brandy or apple juice
You will need a large frying pan.
- Peel the onions. Slice them in half. Slice each half thinly, into half-rings.
- Heat the oil in the frying pan. Add the onions. Allow them to begin to color, then move them around the pan with a spatula or wooden spoon. Continue stirring until they are well browned. This will take about 20 minutes. Lower the heat if the onions are burning. The trick here is that the onions MUST be soft and they must take on a deep brown colour - this gives the onions that lovely sugary taste.
- When you are happy that the onions are ready, slowly add the port or juice. A lot of it will evaporate, but stir as you add the liquid, scraping the bottom of the pan at the same time. Cook until the liquid is thick - it should only take a minute - stirring all the time.
