  • 1 Medium onion
  • 2 Tablespoons cooking oil


  • Grab a piece of onion and cut off the tops. Slice onions lengthwise in half and peel, discarding the outermost layers.
  • Take one half of the onion and place it on a clean kitchen surface with the flat side facing down. Slice further into half rings. You can also mince the onion if you will be using it to cook a certain dish. Do the same with the other half.
  • Add oil into a pan and warm it up over medium-high heat. Once hot, throw in the onion.
  • Cook the onions until their color become darker and they start sticking to the bottom of the pan. To keep onions from sticking too much to the pan, dash them with a little water occasionally.
  • Continue to stir the onions until they achieve the flavor and color you prefer. Remove from heat or continue cooking to make the dish that you want.
