Step 5: Adjust the heat to medium and cook for another 10 minutes until brown, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Make sure to stir from time to time to prevent the onions from burning.
Step 6: Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 10 minutes while stirring.

Step 4: Put the caramelized onions back to the skillet as well as 1 cup of heavy cream and ¼ teaspoon of salt, and then allow the mixture to boil.
