  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add onions and simmer until tender, about 20 minutes. Drain and pat dry.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and stir until well coated with butter. Season with salt. Cook and stir until onions are brown and caramelized, about 5 minutes.

Serve hot or cooled with vinegar syrup drizzled on top.
