Using Baby Silver Skinned Onions In Stews

Baby silver skinned onions, also known as pearl onions, are a delightful addition to stews, imparting a subtle sweetness and tender texture that complements the heartiness of the dish. Here’s how to use them in stews:

  1. Peeling: Start by peeling the baby silver onions. Blanch them in boiling water for about 2-3 minutes, then transfer them to an ice bath. This will make peeling easier, as the skins will slip off effortlessly.
  2. Sauté: In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat a bit of oil or butter over medium heat. Add the peeled baby onions and sauté them until they turn golden brown. This step not only enhances their flavour but also adds depth to the stew.
  3. Stew Base: Before adding the onions, prepare the stew base. This might include browned meat, aromatic vegetables like onions and garlic, and a combination of herbs and spices. Simmer this mixture until it’s fragrant and the meat is partially cooked.
  4. Combine: Add the sautéed baby onions to the stew base. They will absorb the flavours of the stew while contributing their own unique sweetness. Stir well to ensure even distribution.
  5. Simmer: Continue simmering the stew until the meat is tender and the flavours meld together. The baby onions will soften further and become infused with the stew’s rich taste.
  6. Serve: Ladle your hearty stew into bowls or plates, ensuring that each serving contains some of those tender, flavourful baby silver skinned onions.

Baby silver skinned onions elevate stews, providing a touch of sweetness and a delightful pop of texture. Their addition enhances the overall complexity of the dish, making your stew a comforting and satisfying meal. Contact us today at Victus Emporium to find out more.
