How to Make French Onion Soup
NOW let's change our appetite.What is it about soup that offers such comfort, particularly when winter nights draw in? French onion soup is a conundrum as it's so luxurious and rich, yet economical.


Thing You'll Need:

4 Tbsp unsalted butter
4 large onions, halved and thinly sliced
1/4 C sugar
Salt & pepper to taste
1/2 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
6 C beef stock
2 Tbsp Ruby port wine
4 large slices French bread, toasted
1 C grated gruyere cheese
4 oven-proof bowls
1 large saucepan

Step 1:
Melt butter over medium-low heat in saucepan.

Step 2:
Add onions to saucepan and cover. Allow them to sweat for 20 minutes, stirring every few minutes to avoid burning.

Step 3:
Sprinkle sugar over the onions and cover for 10 minutes. This will allow the onions to caramelise and turn a golden brown colour.

Step 4:
Add 3 cups of stock and simmer on medium heat for 15 minutes uncovered.

Step 5:
Add remainder of stock with port and heat using medium heat for 30-40 minutes.

Step 6:
Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Step 7:
Preheat oven to 350F.

Step 8:
Fill each oven-proof bowl with soup and top with a slice of toasted french bread.

Step 9:
Sprinkle gruyere over each slice.

Step 10:
Bake until cheese melts and goes bubbly which will take approximately 10 minutes. The cheese will go a beautiful shade of golden brown.

Relevent Tips
Allow the dishes to cool for a few minutes before serving as they will be tongue-burning hot! However, I have to say its worth burning a tongue for this recipe!
