    Hi, and welcome!

    Not familiar with the request, but found this for you. The person requesting Bill Miller's recipe, tried the first one and said it was close. They also said to half the oil in the first recipe, as 1 cup was too much.

    Marinated Onions

    2 lg Vidalia Onions
    1 c Vegetable Oil
    1 c White Vinegar
    3 tb Sugar
    1/2 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Pepper
    1/2 ts Parsley Flakes
    1/2 ts Oregano
    1/4 ts Garlic Powder

    Slice the onions 1/4 inch thick, separating rings. Ingredients are more estimated than measured, add or subtract to your own individual taste. Mix all ingredients in a container you can cover and shake, keep in the refrigerator. Marinade at least 24 hours before serving. You can continue to add more onions to mixture as necessary for up to four additions. After that, drain, make new marinade and transfer onions.

    Marinated Onions

    2 medium yellow onions, thinly sliced
    1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
    2 Tablespoons Champagne vinegar
    2 Tablespoons kosher salt
    1 Tablespoon freshly cracked pepper
    1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
    1 Tablespoon finely chopped chives

    Rinse onions under cold water to reduce their sharpness. Drain and place onions in medium bowl. Toss onions with oil, vinegar, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Marinate at room temperature for 15 minutes. Stir in chives.

    Found this message on another board....
    My daughter worked at Bill Miller's here in San Antonio and says that the recipe is just onions (Vidalia, if not..add some sugar to taste), 1 part oil to 2 parts white vinegar, salt, pepper and parsley to taste.

    I keep a big jar of these in the refrigerator all the time and change out pretty often...they need to be made and refrigerated for at least 24 hours before eating.

    Momof1Boy, my sister is the one that posted the request for me. I was unable to register at first. I live north of San Antonio and my husband and I love these onions. I was told by someone at one of the Corpus (Calallan) locations that they also used chives and chopped up the dark green leaves from the cabbage they used for their coleslaw. Is your daughter aware of using either one at the location where she worked?

    Judy, her reply says she found that on another site. I don't think it is her daughter she is referring too. I read the same thing, several employees posted the exact same thing, no cabbage or chives.

    Default marinated onion

    I tried the marinated onion recipe in hopes that it would taste like the Bill Miller BBQ restaurant. I was disappointed. I used half of the amount of oil like one post had mentioned. I spoke with someone that had actually made the onions for the restaurant. He did not remember the measurements but said they had used chives along with salt, pepper, cottonseed oil, vinegar and onion. I did not use sweet onions so I added a little sugar. I used canola oil because I did not find the cottonseed oil. I used 1 c. of vinegar and 1/2 c. oil. They were way too oily. Bill Millers does not have an oil taste at all. I guess I'll keep experimenting. Thanks for all the posts though.

    That's really a coincidence. I am not Miller though. I am Morgan. I wished it were the Bill Miller that owned the chain of restaurants in the Texas area so I could get his exact recipe!

    How do peeps use these---side dish/salad or condiment?

    Does it matter what type of onion is used vs. how they are eaten?
