2 tablespoons olive oil

1 bay leaf
3/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup Cabernet Sauvignon or other dry red wine

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, thyme, and bay leaf. Cover and cook 25 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Stir in salt and garlic; cook, uncovered, 2 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in wine, brown sugar, and vinegar; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer 12 minutes or until liquid almost evaporates and becomes syrupy.

Remove from heat; stir in pepper. Cool to room temperature. Discard bay leaf.
