Good as a side dish for a steak or pork.

Ready In: 20 mins

Serves: 4


  • 3  tablespoons butter
  • 1  lb  frozen pearl onions, thawed (can use fresh, cooked and peeled)
  • 3  tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 1  teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 14 teaspoon salt (to taste)
  • 14 teaspoon pepper
  • 2  tablespoons  chopped parsley, divided


  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions begin to brown on all sides; about 10 - 12 minutes.
