Good deal. It's real simple to make, just a few ingredients and takes roughly an hr. The longest part is getting those onions to brown and caramelize.

Glad yall enjoyed.

I took the pic halfway through the browning process. Let them cook a little bit longer but since they were gonna continue to cook in the sauce later on I didn't want to push it.

Again thanks for the props guys. Still young at this (im 23) but love to try new cooking styles.

Question: how do you keep the onions feom disappearing? I've done this with pork several times. But, in the end the onions are all but gone.

The key is to salt the onions a bit to draw out some of that extra moisture. That and keep stiring them, or they will burn. It takes awhile but carmelized onions are the shite.

Read the post last night, cooked it tonight. Really good. You were right about the gravy. Make a lot to use later. Thanks for the recipe.

Just wanted to let you know that I decided to try out this recipe last night and it came out great. I've cooked similar meals before, but the pics looked so good that I decided to give it a shot your way. Only thing I did different was using bone-in thighs (I had them in the freezer already).

I did it too, but was kinda rushed. Wife and child did not like. Next time looks like I'll be cooking it just for me.

I must be a redneck at heart then because this is the only way I've ever done it. What other way is there?

Same technique, generally, browning the hell out of the meat, then the onions, then add the meat back and slowly incorporate stock or water. The melting onions will thicken the gravy to a degree.Very popular in the Cajun Prairie area. The "redneck style" would use flour.

Yea it takes some time, the key is to really brown and carmelize the onions as that is essentially the base of your gravy. Took me about 20-25 mins just for that step. Low heat and a dash of salt to draw out some water is key.
