Sweet Tea Caramelized Onions

Serves 1 cup

Cook Time: 35 - 55 minutes

Put Sweet Tea Caramelized Onions on top of a steak with blue cheese, on chicken, on salmon, use in any kind of toasted sandwich or quesadilla. Add them on anything to make it taste that much better. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 3/4 tsp. Kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. oil of choice
  • 1⅔ cup sweet tea of choice
  • ⅛ cup granulated sugar

Directions

Cut each onion into 1⁄8 inch strips (follow the natural lines of the onion.) In a large bowl, add the cut onions, salt, pepper, and oil. Stir to combine all ingredients evenly.

Heat Evo grill to medium. Lightly coat the Evo cooktop with a paper towel that has some oil on it.

Take the bowl of cut onions and empty it onto the Evo. Spread the onions evenly on the grill and do not touch them for about 5 minutes This will allow the natural sugars from the onion to start to caramelize. Stir the onions around a little to now caramelize the other side of the onions. Let them cook without touching for another 5 minutes.

Once the batch of onions has evenly caramelized turn the outer burner off and adjust the inner burner to medium-low.

In a medium sauté pan add the cooked onions, cup of sweet tea, and granulated sugar. Allow this to cook on the Evo for about 25 min. stirring occasionally to assure no sticking.

The liquid should be close to gone at this point. The onions are done, however now is the chance to really make those onions pop with flavor; if time permits, add the remaining 2⁄3 cup sweet tea and allow that to cook for another 20 min.

Place finished onions in a bowl and allow to cool. Use hot or refrigerate for later use.
