    Onion Sauce

    ONION SAUCE for steaks, or whatever else you want to use it on

    2 TBLS sugar
    1 TBLS vinegar
    1 TBLS butter
    1 TBLS flour
    1 cup water
    salt (to taste)
    2 Med white onions, sliced

    melt butter in pan
    add sugar and cook until the sugar JUST starts to brown
    Add and lightly brown onions
    add flour and stir
    add water, vinegar and salt to taste
    simmer until thick, serve on or next to steak

    Ingredients may be varied to taste. I start with a bit more butter and tend to go a bit heavier on vinegar. ENJOY!

    I had to look up this post, richinlbrg , after you mentioned it on the What would your last meal be? topic. This sauce sounds wonderful. I'm printing it out and will be making it with our next steaks. Thanks so much!

      How did I miss this the first time around?

    This sounds absolutely amazing. I'll definitely be trying this soon. Thanks for sharing!


      Ohh, WOW!!

      Hope y'all enjoy it as much as I do. Please let me know, and criticisms are welcome. Craigar , Danjohnston949 , Parnicus and fzxdoc , no pride of authorship here!

      It should be a touch sweet and a touch sour, so adjust the vinegar and sugar to taste.

        Craigar , white distilled!

        But you can try the balsamic and let us know!

        richinlbrg Thank you! Before I start monkeying around I will stick with the original recipe and maybe give the balsamic a go later on down the road. Thanks again!

        Thrilled you're going to try it, Craigar !

        I pretty much always take your approach, sticking to the recipe verbatim, then try changes after that.

      Thanks! I want to try this. I do something similar to sauté but you have added some nice wrinkles to make it a sauce. I appreciate it.


        Ditto what everyone said. Looks really good will try soon


          Craigar , I made it again last night, but when I went to the pantry to get the distilled white vinegar, we had none. I wont say who used the last (but the initials are #1, who, when asked said "ooppppsss LOL) so I tried apple cider vinegar. Didn't work well. Tried adding lemon and lime (a purported substitute). Not so good either.

          So that change I do not recommend.

          Also should note that the recipe calls for white onions, but I regularly use mayan or vidallia when in season. Not good with red onions.

        Grilla Pellet Smoker proves good things come in small packages

        We always liked Grilla. The small 31.5″ x 29.5″ footprint makes it ideal for use where BBQ space is limited, as on a condo patio.

        The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

        Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
