Sauce That Sings

From the moment I saw this pin, I knew it would be love at first taste, and I couldn't wait to try the recipe. Everything The Pioneer Woman makes sounds divine, plus her photographs are practically edible and she's hilarious; the perfect ingredients if you ask me. As is customary, I made a few small changes - a little less butter and skim milk instead of heavy cream - but as I can't imagine it tasting any better, the original recipe should probably be illegal. I can't take credit for how genius and amazing this was, but I can say that Jeff and I licked our plates, I told about five people about it within an hour of eating it, and I'm already thinking of the next opportunity I'll have to make it. Without further ado, I give you...

Onion-Blue Cheese Sauce

Recipe, lovingly adapted from The Pioneer Woman:
(Makes 4 servings)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1 cup skim milk
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese

In a large skillet, melt butter. Add onions and cook over high heat, stirring occasionally and allowing onions to caramelize and get dark brown.
Reduce heat to simmer and pour in 1 cup milk. Cook until milk reduces by half. Stir in blue cheese and cook until melted.
I served my sauce with boneless pork chops, mashed potatoes, and sauteed spinach. It went great with pork chops and I'm sure it would be delicious with chicken, steak, or with a spoon!
