Directions

  1. Heat the butter in a skillet over medium heat until the foam subsides. Cook and stir the onion until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the apples, and cook and stir until the onion and apples are starting to brown and the apples are soft, about 10 more minutes. Sprinkle on salt to taste.

This is a great recipe! my family makes this dish in the fall every year. My mom-mom cooks bacon with the apples though and she adds a touch of brown sugar. Everyone loves it!!!

This was bitter and smelled bad when I made it as directed. Maybe I shouldn't have use granny smith apples.

Loved this! My husband is allergic to red onions so I used a Vidalia onion instead. So yummy!

I made this to go with pork tenderloin today and we loved the combination as a nice change of pace from my sickeningly sweet style fried apples. I'll make this again.

Scaled this down to 2 servings and used Gala and Granny Smith apples. Most cooked apple dishes are sweet, so this is a really nice change for a savory side dish which was served warm with a pork entree. Next time I make this, I will add some crumbled crisp bacon as suggested by the recipe author, as that should only enhance its savoriness. Thanks Jin for sharing your recipe, this is a good one!

My family loved this. Made a big bowl for a family event and it was gone faster than anything else. I used the apples I had on hand, and walla walla sweet onions. I did add bacon, but I used the candied bacon I made the day before. A month later I am still getting emails asking for this recipe.
