French Onion Soup

French OnionThis ultimate version of the bistro classic is made beef broth and sweet red onions. Nothing better than that traditional bubbling crust of cheese; it’s rich, smooth, and melts easily. Yum.

 

Ingredients:

  • One gallon Beef Broth
  • 8 medium red onions
  • Granulated garlic,To Taste
  • Black Pepper, To taste
  • Toasted Baguette bread
  • Shredded mozzarella Cheese (or Aged Gruyère)

 

Preparation:

Peel and chop red onions.   The red onions are sweeter than the yellow. That is the reason for using them. Add the onions to the beef broth.  Bring mixture to a boil.  Turn down to a simmer. Then add pepper and granulated garlic.  I add enough garlic to just coat the top of the liquid.  Let simmer for about 2 hours.  Add water as needed.  Ladel soup into bowl top with bread and cheese.  This recipe is not traditional French onion soup and I have been scolded many times for the way that I prepare it but everyone seems to really enjoy it so I continue to prepare it this way. ENJOY!
