Pressure cooker caramelized onions. Caramelized onions are healthy and favorite component of many dishes, cooked in a pressure cooker. Use them as a topping for a hamburger or pizza, serve as a side dish for a steak, or use for a famous French onion soup.

This recipe is for stove top pressure cooker. If you have an electric instant pot, use this cooking method:

Pressure Cooker Caramelized Onions (Electric Pot)

Ingredients: 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, 3 pounds (1.44 kg) yellow or mixed onions, sliced, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Method: Melt the butter in an electric pressure cooker turned to the browning function. Add sliced onions and baking soda and stir well to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onions slightly soften, for about 3 minutes.

Close the pot and lock the lid. Set the machine to cook at high pressure. Set the timer to cook for 20 minutes. Using the Natural Release method, bring pressure to normal. Unlock and open the lid. Continue cooking with lid off, stirring constantly, until liquid inside completely reduced and onions are brown and sticky, for a further 5 minutes.

For vegans, substitute coconut oil for butter.

Pressure-cook at a gauge pressure of 1 bar/15 psi for 40 minutes. Start timing as soon as full pressure has been reached.

Step 5

Allow the pressure cooker to cool. Transfer cooked onions to a pot.

Step 6

Simmer over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until cooking liquid has reduced to a syrup, for about 10-12 minutes.

Step 7

Season caramelized onions to taste with salt, sugar, and black pepper. Serve warm.
