I remember my parents called these Coney Island Onions, reminiscent of hot summer days eating hot dogs and walking the boardwalk. My son Chris loves them. Sweet and pungent this condiment remains a classic. We like them on Sausage Heros!! Spike it with some hot sauce or sliced cherry peppers.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 Vidalia onions,sliced
A few pickled sliced cherry peppers (optional)
A dash of hot sauce ( optional)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup water
1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons mustard
1/4 cup sugar
3 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
2 teaspoons paprika
Salt to taste
1 tablespoon butter
1. Heat the oil in a saucepan, add sliced onions and sauté for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
2. Add vinegar, water, ketchup, mustard, sugar, Worcestershire sauce, paprika and salt. Stir until combined. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer, cook until the onions are soft, about 35 minutes. Stirring occasionally.
3. Adjust seasonings, add the butter and serve.
