Braised Pearl Onions

This is a lovely side for a good steak.

 

1 1/2 tablespoon Unflavored or Butter Flavor Olive Oil

2 (14.5 oz.) pkg frozen pearl onions, thawed and drained*

1/3 cup Traditional, Pomegranate or Vermont Maple Balsamic Vinegar

1/4 cup water, as needed

3/4 teapsoon kosher salt

1/4 teaspoon black pepper

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. add onions; cook 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Add the vinegar.  Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes, adding water, 1 tablespoon at a time, if the pan seems dry.  Stir in remaining oil, salt and pepper.  Top with parsley.

* I used fresh pearl onions and cooked them just a bit longer.  They were terrific.
