There’s a formula to this and it’s simple: If you’re going to use garlic and onions together, all you need to do is the following:
- Mince the garlic, dice the onions.
- Put the garlic in the pan on medium-high with either a small amount of oil or water. Stir slightly and allow garlic to brown a little before adding the onions. If needed add a little water to prevent garlic from sticking and burning to the pan. I end up having to do this a couple times, usually.
- Add the onions with a bit of water. This helps to steam-fry the onions and soften them fairly quickly. Cook until the onions have a bit of a clear appearance and they are becoming flexible and more rubbery.
- Add salt to taste.
- Add remaining recipe ingredients. Follow recipe from here.
