Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Over medium heat, heat skillet before placing in butter and oil.
  2. Add onion, salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and sugar.
  3. Cook uncovered over medium heat, moving the onions around, until onions begin to get browned; approx.
  4. 8-10 minutes.
  5. Cover and reduce heat to medium-low and cook for an additional 13-15 minutes.
  6. The onions will sweat down and be glossy and soft.
  7. *(At this point for visual affects, I add 1/2 tsp. Gravy Master or Kitchen Bouquet) to give it a rich brown color.
  8. Can be made in advance; freezes very well for the next Sunday roastbeef dinner.
  9. Serve with hamburgers, roasts or steaks.

Absolutely Fantastic! I made this to serve with quick hot roast beef sandwiches. I used thin sliced deli eye roast on a hard Italian roll with cheese on top. I microwaved these till hot and then topped with the onions. Thanks Gingerbee for a wonderful recipe.
