The red onion relish is a soft sweet sour&sauce, the perfect complement to Burgers, Barbecued Beef, Matured Cheese.
I like to use red onion as they have a soft sweet flavour that nicely balances the white vinegar.
It gently breaks the strong taste of grilled meat or matured cheese like Pecorino, Gruyère or Comte.
Red onion relish
- 3 red onion
- 3 tbsp melted butter
- 1 tbsp Olive oil
- 1 tbsp caster sugar
- 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar Best if from Modena
- 1 tsp salt
- Cut the onions into vertical slices, and fry them at medium heat with butter and olive oil
- Once they become translucent lower the heat, add the salt, sugar and balsamic vinegar and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring from time to time.
- You can serve it immediately with a warm meal, or at room temperature in a sandwich.
