Ready In:
2 cups




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

  5. 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.


I'm a "newbee" to this site, but not to cooking. I love great food and to share recipes and this site is great! I don't know where the information of a "fry cook" came from, but I would consider myself anything else but that :) A NYC girl originally, lived in London and Canada where I am now. Met lots of interesting people along life's way who taught me a great deal and enriched my life with their knowledge of cooking. With my children now adults, the family has doubled in size and my commitment to making memories to pass down to another generation inspires me to cooking. I find cooking a creative expression of one's personality and never tire of new challenges in the kitchen.
