You ever find yourself looking down at your steak that may or may not have come out quite right and say to yourself “I really wish I could salvage this!” ? Well, My son always likes to add caramelized onions to his steak in these situations. Thing is, they are somewhat hard to make if you don’t know what you’re doing. Not to mention everyone has different tastes. Do you cook them lightly, giving them some bite? Do you char them, and bring out a very strong, naturally sweet flavor as a result? Do you add seasonings? there’s so many different ways to go about it, and to be honest, there’s no real “right” answer. Find what works for you! This method from Simply Recipes is a nice place to start I think. Experiment on your own all you like. Onions are cheap, and even “bad” attempts can add great flavor to pretty much any dish, so what do you got to lose?

Several medium or large onions, yellow, white, or red
