Elise, I finally got around to trying this recipe. I’ve never had brown braised onions and they definitely piqued my interest…they were so good! I was definitely surprised :). can’t wait to try the creamed version, as I’ve never had creamed onions, either. thanks!
I made this for my boyfriend with a few other recipes from this site–incredible! He is not a fan of onions, but a few bites in, he was in love.
Highly recommended for anyone who wants a nice, warm dish!
At the very end…I added a drop of white wine and reduced it. Yummy.
So now…let me see…Elise’s braised onions OR Elise’s caramelized onions.
Braised or caramelized; Caramelized or braised. What’s a girl to do?
Me thinks I have to caramelize some onions as well this week, Elise. Both are winners. :)
Now…if I could only stop eating chocolate…I’d lose some weight with all these vegetable dishes of yours.
Thanks for another goodie.
These look delicious! I’m wondering if you think this could be adapted to a slow cooker / crock pot. I’d like to have these as a side for a vegetarian meal I’m preparing, but I fear that all of the burners will be taken. Do you think they’d turn out alright if the braising was done in a slow cooker? Thanks!
I don’t see why not. Sounds like a good idea! ~Elise
I am trying the beef bourguignon and will add the braised onions also. What else would you suggest to go with this meal?
Potatoes, either mashed or boiled, and a green vegetable. ~Elise
Made these as a side to go with Mother’s Day T bone steaks. Also used the frozen variety. Delicious!
Hi Elise, I am getting into cooking and love all your recipes. I have a real novice question. I have seen references to “blanching” vegetables. What is this and how do I do it?
Hi Samantha, great question. Blanching means dipping into boiling water from anywhere from a few seconds to a couple minutes. The idea is not to cook through, otherwise that would be called boiling. ~Elise
After dipping into boiling water for needed amount of time you will place what you are blanching into a bowl of ice water to stop the cooking process. I bet explaining that “The idea is not to cook through, otherwise that would be called boiling” side-tracked her and the ice bath was just an oversight. I hope this comment is not taken to be inappropriate as that is not my intent. I will definitely be fixing these for my hubby, he loves all veggies.
My husband and I made the onions on New Year’s Eve as a side dish with Filet Mignon. They were so tender and delicious. We really loved this recipe!! We will most certainly make this dish again.
