There’s something comforting about the sizzle of the pan when ingredients splash into the hot oil.
Here, onions will be transformed into sweet caramelized goodness. But first, raw, they hit the sauté pan with that satisfying sound. sizzling and popping as they are stirred. Each slice of onion coated with a little oil to help in the process of cooking.
One note about the video. I mention that salt kills the caramelization process. This is not true. Add a pinch of salt at the beginning and it will help the onions brown faster.
