  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, cook and stir until lightly browned. Sprinkle in the sugar, and continue cooking until onions are deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth and vinegar and season with paprika. Mix in the bread until dissolved. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 3 minutes.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Serve with pork or beef.

Whats his face

Very Very good onion sauce. Anyone who enjoys the taste of onions will want to make this. Works well for any dish that could use a little tweaking or to add moisture to a dry meat. As far as adding calories goes, I'm sure one slice of rye to a entire recipe of onion sauce and then use a portion of it to your dish wouldn't add many calories if you think about it.:)

This turned out pretty good. Left out the bread and poured over pork roast in slower cooker all day. Thanks for the post.


Rye bread turns out soggy (sp?) and adds too many calories to the meat. Thanks anyway. Love rye bread, just did not work for me
