Wee Mac French Onion Dip

We are excited to announce our new collaboration with our great friends at Sun King Brewery and the Indianapolis City Market!

If you’re like us, we’re always looking for new ways to create great meals. Collaborating with Sun King Brewery was a natural fit. They started up just 2 years after Green Bean Delivery and have played a fundamental role in giving back to the greater Indianapolis community, contributing to over 500 non-profits and generating over $1,500,000 in economic impact.

As for the location, the amazing people at the Indianapolis City Market welcomed us to their incredible test kitchen to be the host site for our Cooking with Sun King series! First opened in 1886, the Indianapolis City Market ushered in a new tradition: an open space for the sale of meats and produce. It wasn’t long before the Indianapolis City Market began to flourish as a community gathering place and one-stop shop for fresh produce, meat, fish, poultry, dairy and baked goods.

To start off our collaboration, we’d like to share this sensational recipe for Wee Mac French Onion Dip! This is the perfect appetizer to wow your crowd at your next gathering!

  1. Heat sugar in a 12-inch stainless-steel skillet over medium-high heat until completely melted and light brown, about 3 minutes.
  2. Immediately add onions and stir with wooden spoon to coat onions in sugar.
  3. Add butter, baking soda, 1 teaspoon salt, and a few grinds black pepper. Toss to combine. Cook, shaking pan occasionally until onions release all their liquid and brown coating builds up on bottom of pan, 6 to 8 minutes.
  4. Add 2 tablespoons of Sun King’s Wee Mac beer and shake pan while scraping with wooden spoon to deglaze brown bits from bottom of pan.
  5. Continue cooking, shaking occasionally until coating begins to build up again, 3 to 5 minutes. Repeat deglazing and cooking steps three more times until all Wee Mac is used up and onions are deep brown. Transfer to medium mixing bowl and allow to rest at room temperature for 5 minutes.
  6. Add sour cream, mayonnaise, lemon juice, parmesan, and Worcestershire and whisk to combine. For smoother texture, run through blender or food processor.
  7. Chill in a sealed container for at least 1 hour and up to 5 days (flavor will improve with time). Spoon into a bowl, sprinkle with chives, and serve with chips.
