How To Chop An Onion

Last week I vlogged about how to peel garlic.

How to chop an onion quickly and safely

I’ve timed myself. I am capable of peeling and chopping an onion in 30 seconds. And I mean the right way not just hacking at it. It’s a super simple process that everyone should know because it seems like I’m chopping onions constantly, and I can’t be the only one.

That’s my trick. What do you have to teach me?

    I do both of those things, too…I’ve learned them over the years. The longer you’ve been cooking, the more little tricks and short-cuts you have under your belt!

    • Michelle says:

      Absolutely. It’s all the little tricks and tips that you don’t realize you know. But oh the time savers are important, aren’t they?

    This is very helpful. I learned recently how to properly cut an onion and it has saved me a lot of time as you are right onions are in everything!

    Next, I need a hot to cut pineapple tutorial!

    Why do I always chop onion? The halve trick plus smiley face is wonderful!

    I just learned that technique recently! I have to remember to grab the chef knife though. I’m always grabbing the smaller one.

    • Michelle says:

      Get your chef’s knife. My husband likes to try to cut and chop with a paring knife, and it drives me nuts because it’s dangerous when a knife is too small for the job.

    I love this tutorial!! My mom did something similar growing up but never verbalized to me just how to do it. The “smiling faces” makes it all so clear. Thank you!!
