When it comes to pickled red onions, Bobby Flay is the master. If you're a fan of the show Beat Bobby Flay, you've seen him make these. My favorite part is always the addition of grenadine. I have a happy association with grenadine and childhood Shirley Temples. Who doesn't?
From time to time, I would look on the internet for his recipe and I could never find it. He seems to have several versions of the pickled red onions out there. Every time I thought I found "the" one, it wasn't the recipe that included the grenadine. That's the one I wanted! But finally, I realized he published it in his great book, Bobby at Home: Fearless Flavors From My Kitchen.
And so I made Bobby Flay's fantastic pickled red onions for my Amazing Pork Schnitzel Sandwich. I also used those same pickled red onions for my Four Awesome Avocado Toast Ideas blog post. It made me realize that I have some recipes that have other recipes within them. They are recipes that stand on their own and could be useful for many recipes. So here I am. I'm posting the video that is just the pickled red onions.
there are so many uses for pickled red onions
In addition to using them on my Crispy Pork Schnitzel Sandwich and avocado toast of many varieties - you can use them on top of salad. You can put a heap of pickled red onions on top of a burger and they would be AWESOME on my Bacon Stuffed Cheeseburgers from my Backyard BBQ video! Throw them on your Pork Carnita Tacos! Get creative and add them to a cole slaw recipe! Believe me, you'll keep finding uses for these crunchy, tangy pickled red onions.
