Simple Caramelized Garlic Slices Cooking Recipes

Caramelized garlic Slices

Pass these delicious garlic slices to stir into mashed potatoes, or serve them as an accompaniment to roast pork, grilled steak or roast lamb.

Makes about 1 cup

  • 3 tablespoons butter

  • 3 large head garlic, cloves peeled and thickly sliced lengthwise

  • 1 tablespoon sugar

  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons dry white wine

  • 1/4 cup well flavored chicken stock

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

  1. Melt the butter in a medium size heavy skillet over very low heat.

  2. Add the garlic, cover and cook, shaking the pan from time to time to keep it from burning, until the garlic is almost tender, 15 to 20 minutes.

  3. Sprinkle the sugar over the garlic. Pour in the vinegar, wine and stock. Increase the heat and boil until the liquid is reduced to a few tablespoons of thick glaze and the garlic is coated and golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes.

  4. Season with salt and pepper and toss with the parsley. Serve hot.

Note: Garlic chars and burns easily if cooked at too high a heat. Burned garlic has an unpleasant bitter flavor that will spoil the final dish. It is better to add the cut up cloves to a moderately hot pan and to cook , stirring constantly, for no longer than 1 minute. If you must add garlic to very hot oil or butter, cook it only for a few seconds before adding other ingredients. For a milder flavor, cook a whole peeled clove of garlic in butter or oil over medium heat for 1 minute, being careful not to let it burn. Then remove the clove from the pan with a slotted spoon and discard. The whole clove will impart a mild garlic flavor to the fat and will enhance a delicate dish or sauce.
