Can you say mooooo to au ju?

I know that usually onions are not in an “au ju” sandwich.

But this is a nice surprise when you dip it in the hot jus and take a bite.

And the onions just put this sandwich over the top!
And don’t worry about the sugar, when adding sugar to onions it brings out the natural sweetness of the onions. You can leave this out if you wish. But whyyyyy?????

You won’t get this sandwich in any restaurant!!!!!
