In my opinion the most underplayed and most flavorful addition to almost any dish is caramelized onions. BOOM. There, I said it...the cats out of the bag now. You're welcome.
how to make;
(1) 3lb bag +/- onions - sweet, yellow, vidalia, any will do
(they shrink a lot and last a while in the fridge so I always suggest you do as much as those teary eyes will allow for. *tip - for convince I will sometimes purchase pre-cut onions so I can save my mascara)
1 stick of butter
EVOO 1/4 cup
Sugar 1- 2 tablespoons
Place chopped onions in a sauté pan with butter, 1/4 cup of evoo and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of sugar on top, mix so onions are well coated and cover on medium/low heat till onions are soft. Turn up the heat to medium/high and toss until brown. Toss on any dish from breakfast eggs to steaks.Keeps well in fridge and reheats in seconds.
2 - 4 oz of Whiskey;
(Farm preferred Makers Mark)
Simple Syrup - homemade equal parts sugar and water heated until completed combined.
Orange (blood orange preferred if in season)
Cherries ; marchino or in syrup. (1-2)
How to smoke (optional) Take Map gas, or creme brûlée burner on a hard piece of wood (ie; cherry or oak) until slightly amber and fragrant.. place on glass to add a smoky flavor.
