    This divine combination of sweet red capsicums and red onions goes well with lamb, and leftovers add something special to an ordinary sandwich.

    Serves: 4 

    • 2 red capsicums, seeded and cut into strips
    • 2 red onions, cut into strips
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • knob butter
    • 4 tablespoons red wine (optional)
    • pinch salt
    • pinch ground black pepper
    • pinch chopped fresh basil

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a saucepan over a medium heat, combine capsicums, onion, oil and butte. Gently cook for 2 minutes then reduce heat to medium low and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the onions and capsicums soften.
    2. If desired, stir red wine into the vegetables and cook until the wine evaporates; approximately 30 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and basil.

    Altered ingredient amounts. Absolutely lovely! my husband loved it with some fresh foccacia bread. So easy and yummy. I used only oil, though, no butter and added some thyme as had no basil. I also added some balsamic vinegar instead of wine. Definetely one to make again and again. Thanks so much! - 29 Sep 2008


    This is wonderful!! I have made this dish at least 4 times since I got a new pan for Christmas. I can not believe the flavours. I have served this with sausage in sandwiches, and with chicken and pork chops. Its a wonder there's any left, I pick onions out of the pan while they're cooking! I have used a little balsamic vinegar instead of wine, also a little chicken stock if I need a little more moisture. Experiment with your herbs - this is very adaptable. - 29 Sep 2008


    Used different ingredients. Everytime we have (any) steak, my husband requests nothing other than onions & mushrooms and since he LOVES red capsicums, I decided to give this a try. I made it per recipe, but threw in 4 semi-chopped, portabello mushrooms. Not only did it smell great while cooking, but tasted great as well! I didn't add sultanas. Thanks Crow, for the tasty steak topper! - 29 Sep 2008
