16 oz Frozen pearl onions
2 tb Vegetable oil
3 tb Sugar
1 1/2 c Beef stock
4 tb Red wine vinegar
Black Pepper

Original recipe makes 6 Servings



RINSE THE ONIONS IN A strainer, just to separate them and remove extra ice. Blot them on paper towels. In a large, heavy skillet, heat the oil over high heat.

When it is hot, add the onions and sugar and continue cooking for 5 minutes, shaking often, until the onions are lightly colored.

Add the beef stock, adjust the heat to medium-high, and continue cooking until the liquid is almost completely evaporated, about 20 to 25 minutes. Stir in the vinegar, cook for 30 seconds, season with salt and pepper, and serve.

Sweet and tangy. They got nicely browned and caramelized. I also used balsamic and it worked out perfectly.

I made this with 20 oz of fresh pearl onions, brown sugar and distilled balsamic vinegar, and vegetable stock instead of beef stock to include my vegetarian son-in-law. There were no leftovers. Yum!

My wife and I have this side dish often. I use brown sugar and a good balsamic vinegar. Instead of the white sugar and red wine vinegar. It is better than the meat dish.

These are by far the best onions I've ever had in my life! My husband cannot eat his steaks without them. They are simply terrific.

Thinking about making this for Thanksgiving, Do you think this could be made in advance and warmed when we are ready to eat?
