These chopes were excellent thanks Latchy. They smelled fantastic as they cooked and tasted better. I found the onion wasn't anywhere near caramelised by 15 minutes (it took me about 30), and I had to use dried tarragon and sour cream (no creme fraiche) but the flavour comes mainly from the vinegar and sherry, and this is a fantastic recipe I'll make again. If you didn't want to use a dairy product, the sauce would be really nice without it too. And I can imagine it over 'roo, beef, or lamb.

I really enjoyed this but Dave wasn't convinced. He found the vinegar a bit overpowering. Personally I enjoyed the sweetness of the onions against the tartness of the vinegar. Took Jan's advise and used dried tarragon and sour cream. Served with Recipe #123403
