sweat (cooking)

Hi everyone!
I have a term here that I've never heard before. It's in a recipe book. They say: "sweat the onion":confused:
here's the full sentence: "
Sweat the onion, watercress and potato with the oil in a covered pan for about 7 minutes"

How would you say that in French? (this word is making me sweat...)

    sweat: (in cooking)
    To cook food, generally vegetables, over a low heat, using a small amount of fat (butter is often used, or a half-half mix of butter and olive oil). This method softens, draws out any natural juices, and helps develop flavour.

    c'est quoi la traduction en français pour le mots 'sweat' ici?

    Voici la définition suer ou faire suer (sweat):
    Faire revenir un élément (viande ou légume) dans un récipient couvert, à feu doux, pour évacuer l'humidité et lui faire rendre ses sucs. Se fait à sec (en général) ou avec un corps gras.
