One of my readers asked me if I could make the Sweet Onion Sauce that is sold on one of the sandwiches at Subway.
I have to tell you, I have never tasted it before so I did a Google search and found a copycat recipe at Food.com
I tweaked it up because it called for 1 cup of sugar. YIKES.
My version of Sweet Onion Sauce is so tasty that I don’t care if it tastes like Subway’s or not.
- ⅔ cup granulated sugar
- 1 cup water
- 6 tablespoons white vinegar
- 1½ tablespoons red wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon arrowroot
- 1 tablespoon minced onion flakes
- 2½ teaspoons Honey Dijon mustard
- 2½ teaspoons mustard powder
- 1 teaspoon celery salt
- 1 teaspoon fresh onion, finely minced (I used a mircoplane)
- 1 teaspoon poppy seed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon sweet smokey paprika
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ⅛ teaspoon chili sesame oil (hot chili oil)
- In a medium-sized sauce pan, whisk all the ingredients listed above.
- Place on the stove set to medium-high heat. Whisk continuously until it comes to a boil.
- Reduce heat to a simmer for 5 minutes.
- Remove from heat.
- Let it cool then you can jar it and refrigerate.
I served this sweet onion sauce on top of my sirloin burger. It can be used on just about any sandwich that you usually use mustard and/or mayo.
It does have a lot of ingredients, but took only minutes to make.
Oh an my new-found ingredient that I love is Arrowroot, which as I mentioned in a previous post is a great thickener.
I sure hope you enjoy your weekend and thanks for stopping by.
