I’m planning to cook my own version of beef burger this weekend. Juicy, tender, overnight marinated beef patty topped with dripping cheese and caramelized onions. I’ve got few questions from friends asking me how to make those “sweet onions” on top of the burger. It’s really easy and the results, gratifyingly nyummeh.
- 3 tablespoons butter
- 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 2 medium size onions, thinly sliced
- salt and pepper
- 2 teaspoons sugar
In a large pan, melt the butter in the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the onions and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper, and cook, stirring constantly, until the onions begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the sugar and cook, scraping the browned bits off the bottom of the pan frequently, until the onions are golden brown, about 20 minutes.
I know the onions don’t really look appealing on it’s own but it goes very well with burgers, promise!
