Caramelized Onions

A Fabulous Foodie
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 45 mins
Total Time 50 mins


  • 1/2 large onion chopped lengthwise
  • 2 tbsp. unsalted butter I used Kerrygold... because it's the best
  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1/4 cup of chicken stock
  • Salt to taste


  • Heat your largest skillet, either stainless steel or cast iron, to medium heat.
  • Melt the butter and add the olive oil.
  • Cook the onions in the pan, stirring every five minutes or so.
  • The onions will begin to brown at around the 20 minute mark. However, the longer you leave them cooking, the darker and sweeter they will turn.
  • Once they turn the color you desire, pour the chicken stock in the pan.
  • Deglaze the pan by scraping the burned bits, or fond, with a wooden spatula.
  • Add salt to taste.
  • Serve immediately or wait a few minutes - they will turn jammy!
