Do-Ahead
The caramelized-onion mixture will just get better when made a day or two ahead. It practically cooks itself, needing more time than attention. Store in the fridge, then reheat before serving.
Planned-Overs
Think how good a roast beef sandwich could be with some of the caramelized-onion mixture spread on the bread. Or liven up Sunday night’s meat loaf with a dollop of these tangy onions.
