For some reason caramelizing onions takes me forever!  And it requires constant attention, stirring, checking, covering, adding water (according to some recipes), lather, rinse, repeat, etc.
So this time I threw my chopped onion into a crockpot with a shitload of olive oil, set it, and forget it.  Yes, it takes a long process and makes it longer, but it’s worry free.  This is how mine looked after 4 hours on high.  But if I wanted, I could let them go a lot longer and get darker and more caramelized.  You can make a batch and use it in recipes all week long.  In eggs, on steak, in side dishes, on hot dogs, burgers, etc.

  6. meyechael said: why is that better than sautéing the onions for a few minutes in a frying pan?
