  • 4 large sweet onions, peeled and cut into thick rings
  • 2 Tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1⁄2 tsp. salt
  • 1⁄4 tsp. ground black pepper

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, simmer the balsamic vinegar until it has cooked down to syrup.
  • Run a long metal skewer through each onion from edge to edge; brush with olive oil and season wit salt and pepper.
  • Heat a grill or stovetop grill pan to a low heat. Place skewers on the grill; cook slowly without moving them until dark grill marks appear, about 15 minutes, turning once about halfway through.
