In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter and whisk in oil; add onions and sauté for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and tender.  Stir in vinegar and remaining ingredients; cook for 5-6 minutes, or until liquid is reduced to about 2-3 Tbs. Stir in pomegranate seeds.  Serve at room temperature.  Can be made ahead and stored in the fridge for 2-3 days.
