-Cut the onion in half so that the uncut end from before is divided in two.
-Slice the onion vertically, making sure not to slice all the way through the uncut end from before.
-Once you have made vertical cuts all around the onion, start slicing horizontally to create strips.

The Right Way to Cut an Onion

Step 1: Cut off one end of the onion and peel it

First, cut off one end of the onion and peel it so that the edible layer is exposed. Cut the onion in half so that the uncut end from before is divided in two, then slice the onion the long way. Finally, cut the long strips of onion into smaller pieces by cutting them crosswise.

Step 2: Cut the onion in half

Step 2: Cut the onion in half
Arrange an onion horizontally on your cutting board, so that the two ends of the onion are facing out. Slice the onion in half vertically, so that each half has a root end and a pointed end.

Step 3: Peel off the skin
Peel off the skin of each half of the onion. You can do this with your hands or with a paring knife.

Step 4: Cut off the root end
Cut off the root end of each half of the onion. The root end is the end that was attached to the plant when it was growing.

Step 5: Slice the onion vertically
Slice the onion vertically, making sure to keep the root end attached to one half of the onion. Slice as thinly or thickly as you like. If you’re slicing for French onions, you’ll want to slice them about 1/4-inch thick.

Step 6: Slice the onion horizontally
Slice the onion horizontally, making sure to keep the root end attached to one half of the onion. Slice as thinly or thickly as you like. If you’re slicing for French onions, you’ll want to slice them about 1/4-inch thick.

Step 3: Slice the onion

Now that your onion is peeled and halved, it’s time to start slicing. For most recipes that call for “strips of onion,” you’ll want to cut the onion in half lengthwise first, then slice it thinly crosswise. To do this, hold the onion half in one hand, flat side down. Slice the onion in half lengthwise, then slice it thinly crosswise

For thinner strips, you can slice the onion lengthwise first, then cut it into thin slices crosswise. To do this, hold the onion half in one hand, flat side down. Slice the onion in half lengthwise, then slice it thinly crosswise.

If you’re cutting a lot of onions at once and your eyes are starting to tear up, try slicing them under running water or using a food processor fitted with the slicing attachment.

Step 4: Cut the onion strips

Now that the onion is cut in half and the root end is removed, it’s time to start cutting the onion into strips. To do this, first make sure that the flat end of the onion is facing up. Then, start slicing the onion vertically, making sure to not slice all the way through. Once you have a few vertical slices made, start cutting the onion horizontally. You should now have a bunch of small strips of onions.
