Ingredients:  
# 1/3 cup sugar
1 tablespoon water
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

Strips of zest from 1 lemon
4 fresh bay leaves

Directions:
1. In a large saucepan, dissolve the sugar in the water. Cook over moderate heat without stirring until a medium-amber caramel forms, about 5 minutes. Off the heat, carefully add the butter and 1/2 cup of the balsamic vinegar. Return the saucepan to the heat and cook until the caramel is melted.

2. Add the onions, lemon zest, bay leaves and chicken stock to the saucepan and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper and simmer over moderately low heat until the onions are very tender and glazed and the liquid is syrupy, about 1 1/2 hours. Stir in the remaining 2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar and season with salt and pepper.


Make Ahead

The balsamic-glazed onions can be refrigerated for up to 1 week. Reheat gently before serving.

Personal Notes:
Called cipollini agrodólce in Italian for their sweet-and-sour vinegar glaze (agro means sour; dólce, sweet), these soft and tangy onions are a fantastic accompaniment to any rich roast meat.
