Baked Onion on the Grill for your Steak

1 Large Onion
1 tsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Brown Sugar
Salt and Pepper (to taste)

Cut the top off the onion. Cut just enough off the bottom of the onion, so it will stand up straight. Peel off the remaining skin. Cut the onion into 4 to 6 wedges stopping just short of going all the way through. This will keep it together. Tear off two pieces of aluminum foil 10 to 12 inches long. The double layer will protect the onion from burning while on the grill. Place the onion centered on the foil pulling foil up tight and around onion. Crimp foil so the top of the onion is exposed. Add salt and pepper and brown sugar. Then drizzle the olive oil over onion to moisten the brown sugar.

Place the onion directly over medium high heat until it is hot. Then move onion away from heat and bake indirectly for 20 minutes or till desired softness. Using tongs to reach into foil and pull out onion wedges.
