Ohhh yayy for Jen! I have always wanted to master the art of chopping onions. This was very helpful!


I love chopping onions and veggies. It's one of my favorite parts of cooking. It has therapeutic properties or something, like baking. Great post Jen!

Great post! Chopping onions do not bother me as much as the fact that they make my eyes go nuts. Thanks for the tips:)


it's a radial vegetable! no need for both horizontal and vertical slices. just halve the veg and concentrically slice to the center...safer and saves so much time...oh children and their food network shows...

Michael Harp

Agreed. The horizontal cuts are unnecessary, and actually make it more difficult to make a proper cut. Also, the vertical cuts should be in a radial pattern, as Holly suggests. Now, be sure to sear your meat so that you seal in the juices... :-) I am always amazed by all the misinformation perpetuated on these cooking shows by 'professional chefs'...

Great tip, though I'm an onion chopper babe when I need loads of Onions!
