Sweet and sour pearl onions

Yesterday I finally cooked one of my favorite wither dishes: sweet and sour pearl onions! I found frozen pearl onions at Traders’ Joe and¬†immediately¬†decided I needed to get them. Yesterday I cooked them and very happily ate them all (well BF helped, but I am pretty sure I was the one that ate the most).

Sweet and sour pearl onions


  • pearl onions
  • 2 cups of beef broth
  • 1/4 cup of raisins
  • butter
  • sugar
  • balsamic vinegar


  1. First, in a pan I put the onions with about 2 cups of water and a beef bouillon cube and let them boil for about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, I soaked a tablespoon of raisins in hot water.
  2. When the onions were soft and nice I drained the leftover broth and put a bit of butter in the pan.
  3. When the butter is melted I added back the onions, a tablespoon of sugar and the drained raisins.
  4. Finally, I added a splash of balsamic vinegar and let everything caramelize for a couple of minutes.
  5. Ready to serve as a side to a pot roast, a roast a stew or even by itself.
