Chili Sauteed Onions

I love cooking with onions! They are healthy, great in salads, roasted or sautéed and super easy to regrow! (I will be attempting this very soon!) In the words of Julia Child: “I can’t imagine a world without onions!”

Earlier this year, I posted my  Smokehouse Turkey Burger recipe but didn’t get a chance to show off the finished product, which includes…..yep, onions! Just look at those savory morsels!!

Now, you may know that I like spice! However, you can tone down the spice (read on).

You’ll need:

  • 1 large white onion (or Vidalia, if you have it!), chopped
  • 1 Tbs. Garlic, minced
  • Soy Sauce, low sodium
  • 1 tsp. Chili Garlic Sauce (see image below)
  • 1 tsp. Olive Oil


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, add about 1 tsp. of Olive Oil.
  2. Chop the onion, roughly, as shown above. If you have something like the Chop Wizard, definitely use it! I would, but my lovely husband broke ours!
  3. Add the onions and let sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Add the minced garlic and let it get fragrant.
  5. Then, add the Chili Garlic Sauce. You can find this in most grocery stores. It should be in the international section. Now, if you add this a bit early on, maybe right after the onions go in, some of the spice will cook off. Either way, you’ll want to let the this cook for few minutes.
  6. Next, add one complete swirl of of the soy sauce. Not too much! This will act as your salt and glazer. Let sauté until the mixture is caramelized.

Finally, top with the mixture and some crumbled goat cheese. Boar’s Head Chipolte Gouda goes great too! Enjoy!
