This recipe has a unique flavor; the blending of pepper, vinegar, and sweet Vidalia onion compliment each other. Fantastic recipe for burgers, steaks, or as a side order.

Great taste, quick and easy to make. Just a tip - you gotta keep stirring to keep the onions from cirsping up.

These onions came out really good! I used normal yellow onions instead of the sweet onions and subsituted brown malt vinegar instead of distilled white vinegar. I used it on a toasted steak and cheese sandwich for my husband and he said it was the best part of the sandwich!
