I’ll find a reason to add a caramelized onions recipe to any dish. And if red wine is involved? Even better!
This recipe for red wine caramelized red onions is the epitome of easy-and-gourmet. Whip up these quick caramelized onions on the stove in 10-15 minutes.
How to caramelize onions on the stove
You don’t need to make caramelized onions with white sugar when you have wine. When you caramelized onions in red wine, the wine starts the caramelization process and adds deep flavor. For this recipe, I used a Cab Sauvignon called Merf wine from the Pacific Northwest.
How long do caramelized onions last?
Caramelized onions last a few days in the fridge. If you want them to last longer, freeze batches of caramelized red onions in muffin tins.
If I need an extra “something” for a holiday or party, I’ll serve an onion side dish for steak, turkey or ham. And they’re always welcome and enjoyed on a cheese plate. If you have sous vide equipment, check out this recipe for sous vide onions.
Your always looking for a reason to cook with onions and wine blogger bud, Jenna.
Caramelized onions in red wine
- 1 red onion sliced
- 1 tbsp garlic
- 2 tbsp oil
- 2 tbsp red wine
Make caramelized onions. Add onion, garlic, and oil to a pan on medium heat and stir regularly until brown, about 10 minutes. Add a drizzle of olive oil, as needed, to prevent onions from sticking to the pan.
Add wine, reduce to medium-low and cook until the wine is fully absorbed into the onions.
For wine, use any red wine you like. I used a Cab Sauvignon called Merf.
