You may find caramelized onions addictive, especially in this recipe with an exotic ginger accent. Try them with other meats or poultry or atop mashed potatoes.

2 (3/4lb.) pork tenderloins, cut into 1-inch slices
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups sliced sweet onion
1 tablespoon minced fresh ginger
1 (8oz.) pkg. fresh mushrooms, cut in half
1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
3 tablespoons apricot preserves

Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat; add pork, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until golden. Remove from skillet; cover and keep warm.

Add onion to pan; cook over medium heat 20 minutes or until onion is browned and tender, stirring often. Add ginger and mushrooms; cook 2 more minutes.

Reduce heat to low; stir in cranberries and preserves. Return pork to skillet; cook until glazed and thoroughly heated.
Serves 4

"Happy is said to be the family which can eat onions together. They are, for the time being, separate, from the world, and have a harmony of aspiration." ~Charles Dudley Warner, 'My Summer in a Garden' (1871)
