step-by-step directions
  • Heat a large skillet oven medium-high with a few tablespoons of olive oil. Add onions, and season with salt. Sprinkle the onions all over with sugar. Cook, undisturbed for one minute, and then add the butter, continuing to cook until the onions begin to develop deep caramelization. Flip the onions, and cook for one minute, and then add the thyme, followed by the sherry. Cook for 10 minutes or until onions are lightly deeply caramelized and. Remove from heat and stir in cream. Adjust seasoning to taste.
