Stage 2 - 5 min.

Slice the onions thinly. If you have one, a mandolin will make this job a lot quicker.

This seems like a lot of onions to begin with, but they will reduce by 2/3 when cooked.

Stage 3 - 1 min.

Stop when they are browned to your liking.

Salt and pepper to taste...

Remarks

Once cooked, the onions will need quite a generous amount of salt as the process tends to make them rather sweet.

You can balance this sweetness, which can be a bit excessive at times, by pouring half a glass of dry white wine or 3 tablespoonsful of vinegar into the pan 5 minutes before the end of cooking.
