how to get onions to soften

arifa | Feb 17, 2009 01:06 PM

i don't know why but i can never seem to get onions to soften when i sautee them on the stove. i have tried using lower heat, adding salt, cooking for a longer time (8-10 minutes), cooking with the cover on, adding some water... they always still feel crunchy when i'm done! i cannot figure out what i am doing wrong. how do you get onions to soften?
