The Best Kind Of Onions To Cook With Pot Roast
Yellow onions taste a bit different from white onions, starting with spice and sharpness before a gentle sweetness sets in. This unique flavor makes them perfect for pot roast.
Yellow onions are starchier than white onions, so they hold their texture better, even under the heat of a slow cooker or oven. They also caramelize well for more depth of flavor.
Their high natural sugar content allows them to turn sweet as they are heated, achieving that characteristic caramelized consistency and taste perfect for adding to your pot roast.
Yellow onions are typically what recipes call for unless otherwise stated. As versatile as they are, they can't replace red or white onions if a recipe calls for those instead.
