Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a 6-quart Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add crushed red pepper; cook, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds. Add onion, garlic and salt; stir to combine. Carefully add wine. Boil gently, uncovered, until reduced by half, about 5 minutes.Advertisement
