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.
