Cooking with Beer - IPA Glazed Onions

Tangy onions glazed with the sweetness of sugar with a bite of an IPA.  It makes for a wonderful contrast of flavors that compliments steaks, chops or burgers.  These would be great in an omelet or mixed roasted potatoes.  The possibilities are endless!  And delicious!

I chose Harpoon IPA for this recipe.  Harpoon is a nice balanced beer; not too bitter so it won't overwhelm the other flavors.  

IPA Glazed Onions

1 Tablespoon Butter
1 Large Onion 
1 Cup IPA
1 Teaspoon Raw Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

Slice the onions very thin.

Melt the butter in medium sized skillet over medium-high heat. 

Add the onions and saute.  Stir occasionally.  Cook for about 5 minutes until they begin to brown.

Stir in the salt and sugar.  Then pour in 3/4 cup of beer.

Continue cooking until all the beer has been absorbed by the onions and they begin to brown slightly, about 18 minutes. Add the remaining 1/4 cup beer and bring to a simmer. Keep onions warm until ready to use.
