Caramelised Beer Onions

We have always caramelised onions in balsamic vinegar, soy sauce, red and white wine - now, think beer! Why not? Try this recipe and serve with the next cheeseboard you present. It could also accompany your marinated, braaied beef fillet. The options are endless.

Ingredients : 

  • 2 (350gr) Onions, sliced
  • 1 can (330ml) Beer
  • 60 ml White Sugar

Method : 

  1. Place the onions, beer and white sugar into a heavy based sauce pan.
  2. Allow to simmer until the onions are caramelised and most of the liquid has reduced to make a syrup coating the onions, this will take about 20 minutes.
