Makes 4 Servings


  • 2 large yellow onions, peeled
  • 4 tablespoons Red Crown Pomegranate Reduction*
  • 2 tablespoons butter or olive oil
  • salt to taste
  • water
  • fresh pomegranate arils for garnish


  • Halve onions from root to tip and remove root. With root facing you, slice onion halves into ⅛” to ¼” thick slices. Repeat for both onions.
  • Season with pinch of salt and reduce heat to medium-low. Cook onions for 15 to 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes to prevent from sticking.
  • Check onions for doneness. If they are getting too brown or sticking a bit, reduce heat. Cook for another 15 to 20 minutes.
  • If there are any bare spots in the pan, add splash of water to keep onions from burning.
  • Reduce heat and add Red Crown Pomegranate Reduction. Season with salt and stir to combine, cooking on low for 2 to 5 minutes until combined.
  • Serve and garnish with fresh pomegranate arils.
