How to caramelize onions

My mom sent me this recipe that she had made a while ago. Brian doesn’t like onions, but has recently come around to liking caramelized onions. Probably because they are sweet…and he loves all things sweet. This batch was extra sweet, because I halved the recipe, except I forgot to half the sugar. Whoops. It got him to eat them though, with rave reviews.


1 T. canola oil
2 large onions, sliced
1 T brown sugar
1/2 c. reduced-sodium beef broth
1 T balsamic vinegar
1/2 t salt
1/4 t. black pepper
Thinly slice onions.
Heat oil in large skillet over med. heat.  Add onions and brown sugar and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes.  
Add broth, vinegar, salt and pepper, cook, stirring until the liquid has almost evaporated. 
How will you use these delicious onions once made? I recommend on a bacon and egg sandwich with spinach and sharp cheddar. Oh yeah.
