Caramelized onions are soooo good, but I think a lot of us are put off by how long it takes to make them. If you ever see a recipe saying it’ll take you less than an 20 minutes, they’re lying. But fear not, I have a little trick when I need caramelized onions that doesn’t make me feel like I’m wasting an hour at the stove.
Heat up some olive oil over medium heat, then put your sliced onion in the pan and coat with the oil. Turn your stove down to a very low heat. Now go and put on an hour-long TV show on Hulu or your DVR. At every commercial break, go back to the stove and stir your onions for a bit, and return to your show when you’re done. By the time your show is over, you can turn off your stove and your onions will be caramelized. You can’t cheat and make fast caramelized onions, but I promise the TV show method will feel quick and easy!
