Slice up/off some onions for me. What would be more appropriate if both are correct and what's the difference?

1 Answer 1


Slice up some onions, slice off a piece. Slicing up is done to the whole onion, while slicing off yields a minor piece, leaving the rest of the whole intact.

Slice up: cut into slices (thefreedictionary.com)
