Grilled Red Onions

These onions are a terrific – you can use them as a side or topping for all kinds of grilled meats and hot sandwiches.


  • 1 large red onion
  • Light colored oil such as peanut, vegetable or canola, for drizzling
  • Steak seasoning blend such as McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning or coarse salt and pepper


Trim a thin slice off the side of the whole, unpeeled onion. Set the onion flat on the cut surface for stability. Cut the onion into four 1-inch thick slices. Remove the outer ring of skin from each slice. Drizzle the sliced onion with oil and season both sides with steak seasoning or salt and pepper, to taste.

Grill on hot grill or on a nonstick grill pan for 5-7 minutes on each side until onion is tender and has begun to caramelize.
