French Onion Soup

There are only a couple places that we like to go for French Onion Soup, but we can assure you that nothing beats T.W.O.’s French Onion Soup! It’s savory, light and healthier than most recipes! Every minute cooking it will be worth it in the end!

Ingredients:
– Beef broth*
– 5 sweet onions, sliced
– 1 bottle dark beer
– ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– Salt
– Pepper
– Olive oil
– Baguette, sliced
– Mozzarella, sliced

*The secret to this recipe is the broth.  T.W.O. used the broth from their seven-bone roast they cooked a couple nights before.  The meat was seasoned with Montreal Steak seasoning and onion soup mix.  Make sure to strain the broth before using it for your French Onion Soup!

Sautee the onions and garlic in olive oil for 8-10 minutes or until soft.  Add salt and pepper to taste.

In a pot, bring the beef broth to a boil.  Add the garlic and onions.  Slowly stir in the beer, balsamic vinegar and fresh pepper.  Cook on high heat for 1 minute.

Bring the temperature down to low and cover the soup.  Cook for about 40 minutes to 1 hour.

Once the soup is ready, ladle some into an oven safe bowl.  Turn the oven on broil or 500°F.  Put the bread in the oven and broil until a little toasted.  Once toasted, put the bread in the soup and top with a slice of mozzarella.

Place the soup in the oven and broil for about 3 minutes or until the cheese browns a bit.  Remove from the oven and place on a plate so you don’t burn your hands!

Ready to serve! Happy cooking.
