The Unrivaled Practical Guide for Asian Cooking

When a recipe calls for sauteing both onions and garlic, why is it essential to add the garlic near the end of the sauteing process?

If you saute the garlic for as long as is required for the onions, you will certainly burn the garlic, producing a bitter flavor. If you shorten the sauteing time of the onions to accommodate the garlic, your onions will be insufficiently cooked, giving your dish a raw, un-sweet, oniony flavor.
