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.
