Sautéed Onions

This is a great side to go with any steak, just serve it right on top of the meat.

Although I use Port Wine in this recipe, you should be adventurous, and try other liquids and spices to flavor your onions. Just try to match any flavors that you're using in the rest of the dish.

Possible Substitutions:
  • Sweet Vermouth
  • Sweet Sherry
  • Malt Vinegar
  • Grand Mariniere
  • Plum Wine
  • Etc.

  • 1 Large Onion, sliced
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1 Tablespoon Vegetable Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butt Kickin' Blacken, Original Recipe
  • 1 Teaspoon Coarsely Ground Pepper
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/4 Cup Ruby Port Wine

3. Saute on high, until the onions are almost done, and the wine is reduced, about 6 minutes. This can be done well before you're ready to serve.
