  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.

  • Peeling the apples is optional. I prefer them unpeeled.

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!

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!

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.
