What's a "brown onion?"

Erika L | Dec 28, 2012 02:36 PM

I have a recipe for a Turkish lamb and fig stew. It calls for brown onions as an ingredient, not as in "saute the onions until brown." I did an online search and found a couple of websites from the UK and Australia. Based on the photos and descriptions, it sounds like a brown onion is what in the US is called a plain ol' yellow storage onion. Are there any CH out there who can enlighten me?
