Vidalia Onions

Hubby bought a 4 lb box of Vidalia Onions on sale. I do enjoy these onions and ISO recipes for it. I did some googling and came up with a few recipes but thought you might have some recipes to share as well.

Onion jam, great on steaks or burgers or sandwiches. I've used different types of onions, depending on what I have on hand. This was from a chef friend here in Toronto.

Saute sliced onions in butter until lightly caramelized and softened. Add red wine, red wine vinegar, sugar and salt. Cook down slowly until the onions have started to break down and the liquid has turned syrupy and almost evaporated.

Slice them in thick slices, brush with olive oil, and grill right alongside your burgers--or chicken, or steak. I like them just charred a little, and still crunchy.

They are also super in stir fries, just cooked enough to soften a little, or raw in sandwiches or salads.

We bake them. Here's how.

Peel onions and leave whole. Using a spoon or a melonballer, scoop out a "well" in the root end. Using one onion per person, place the onions into a shallow baking dish, "well" side up. Pour in enough water to 1/4 inch deep in dish. Put one beef bouillon cube in each "well," along with a small slice of butter. Cover with foil and bake in preheated 350F oven for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

These are sooooo good and literally disappear before your eyes. We're addicted to them. They're great with roast beef, pork or chicken.

Katie E, they sound delicious! I have also stuffed them with a ground beef / rice mixture, as you would peppers.

sounds good. Do you brown the ground beef first and cook the rice first before stuffing?

This is exactly what Ido but I use chicken broth instead of beef. Never thought about using beef broth but you're right they are delicious.

Those sound great with the bouillon cubes
I've baked onions before and left the skin on after cutting the root end off. The skin carmalizes and the onion squeezes right out.

Lots and lots of onion rings. Have a recipe somewhere for an onion ring loaf like Tony Roma's. Baked stuffed onions with apples & raisins, onion blossom with dipping sauce, oniobn flowers, onion soup in onion bowls:

Sparrowgrass, I did these on the weekend to go with grilled steak, and they were great! Thanks!

I bought a bunch recently and made Gyuudon (Japanese dish)

1-2 large onions, sliced
1 lb. beef thin sliced
butter/oil as needed

1/2 cup soy sauce
1/4 cup mirin
1/4 cup water/beef stock
2 Tbsp. Sugar

cooked sticky rice

In a pan, saute the onions in butter until soft (or use more and caramelize them :D )
Add the beef and sear for a minute
Add the soy, mirin, stock, and sugar. Mix prior so the sugar dissolves.
Simmer 5-10 minutes or until the beef and onions are fully cooked.

Serve on top of rice :D

I made a Vidalia Onion Pie, Lady, but can't for the life of me, find which recipe I used.

But this one looks good, and it gives you the idea. Recipes : Vidalia Onion Pie : Food Network
