Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to brown on all sides; about 10 - 12 minutes.
  2. Add the brown sugar and gently stir in the mustard to make a smooth coating over the onions; add salt, pepper, and 1 tbsp parsley. Cook about 2 minutes longer.
  3. Place into a serving bowl and sprinkle with remaining 1 tbsp parsley for garnish.

Phenomenal! That's all I have to say. A perfect side to our grilled steaks. Thanks for posting.

This is a very simple but delicious recipe. One bite and DH said "WOW". They definately have that. The recipe is very easy to follow. The only change I made was to use cilantro for the parsley.

Everyone loved them. Next time I'll use the fresh onions, (only for a little more flavour) Great recipe. Dinner wasn't even finished and they were asking when I was going to make them again.
