Whole Onion Simmered In A Broth

After making a hotpot or a nabe, you always have leftover broth. This is excellent, as it has all the taste from the previous ingredients, so never waste this - let's cook a whole onion in it!

Recipe By: midnight kitchen (https://cookbuzz.com/kitchen/111)
Serves 2 Prep: 5 min Cook: 15 min

Ingredients

Onions 2
Leftover broth as required
Seasoning to taste

Method

1
Peel the onions and push through two cocktail sticks through the middle to make a cross - this will hold the onion together while it cooks. Slice a deep cross on the top of each onion right down to the cocktail sticks.
2
Put the onions in a pan then pour the broth in so they are just covered. Cook on a high heat until it boils then turn down to a simmer for 15 minutes then turn the gas off and leave overnight.
3
The next morning, you'll see the onion has absorbed some liquid and is very sweet. Microwave for 1-2 minutes and remove cocktail sticks. Put your favourite seasoning such as chilli pepper, yuzu or yuzu pepper and it's ready to eat.

Tips & Note

Of course, instead of a leftover broth, you can use a noodle soup stock for example. The main thing is that the onion will become more flavourful if left overnight to cool.
