Caramelized onions

A few weeks ago I bought a "make sausages"-book. I did not buy it directly for how to make sausage or the sausage recipes in it, but for the accessory recipes within it. This recipe is a modified recipe from the book.
The book is called "Gör korv, korta långa råa starka", in Swedish of course, by Johan Åkerberg and Jesper Lindberg. 
Caramelized onions
The ingredients I used were:
  • 2 yellow onions
  • 2 small cloves of garlic
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 50 g butter
  • 1 dl of lager beer
  • salt and pepper

 When the butter has melted in the medium hot pan, I add the garlic and the onion.

I thought it was still a bit much texture left after only 10 minutes in the pan so I let the onions lie in little more than 20 minutes before I added the sugar and beer.
The onions will become sweeter the longer it gets cooked and I have seen recipes for onion soups where it will caramelize for 40 minutes. I guess it needed less sugar the longer the onions are left in the pan.
Although we did not eat sausages the day I made ​​the caramelized onions it had to be tasted. It worked great for burgers.
