This recipe is way, way too easy! My good friend, Marleene told me about this cooking technique which I think she got from a restaurant in Hawaii. The beauty of this recipe is that it is fat free, loaded with taste, kid friendly, virtually low in calories and did I mention....way to easy??!!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut the onion into strips. Sprinkle lightly with salt, and let it sit for at least 10 minutes to draw out the juices from the onion.
  2. Spray large skillet with Pam and let heat. Add onions and cook on low heat for 15 - 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onion is golden.

Easy straightforward recipe - Love Onions and especially grilled onions. I find leaving the lid on while cooking keeps the moisture in and they tend to brown easier. Cooked them for 20 minutes over low heat. Mmm they were great with Maui pork stir fry.

Low and slow is the way to go baby! I used a Vidalia onion. I also added some mushrooms in about halfway through. I love that these are not all greasy. I made it on my electric griddle at 250 degrees. Perfect!
