Caramelized Onion Dip
adapted from Chaos in the Kitchen
1 tbsp oil
1 tbsp butter
2 onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp beef base or 1 cube beef bouillon
1/2 cup water
2 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
salt and pepper, to taste
16 oz sour cream
4 oz cream cheese
1. Heat butter and oil in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Cook onions and garlic until soft and browned. You want them caramelized- this takes a long time, 20-30 minutes or more. Careful not to burn them. Add beef base or bouillon and water and continue to cook until mixture is combined. Season with Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper to taste. Can be made in advance, cool and refrigerate onion mixture until ready to use.
2. Using a hand held mixer (if necessary), combine sour cream, cream cheese, and onion mixture. Chill dip at least 30 minutes or up to several days. Taste and adjust seasonings as desired before serving.
