French Onion Soup
This soup is savory and delicious. The sweetness of the onions and the creaminess of the cheese is a wonderful combination.
2 Tbsp. Butter
2 Large White Onions, Sliced 1/4 Inch Thick
2 Garlic Cloves, Minced
2 14-oz. Cans Beef Broth
1 1.22-oz. Container Concentrated Beef Stock (or 2 Tbsp. Beef Base)
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1 Cup Shredded Swiss Cheese or Provolone Cheese
4 Sliced Toasted French Bread
Melt butter in a large sauté pan over medium heat. Add the sliced onions to the butter and sauté for 12 minutes, until onions are tender. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute. Add the beef broth, beef concentrate and Worcestershire sauce. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to a simmer for approx. 5 minutes. Spoon soup in 4 ovenproof bowls. (I generally place the soup bowls on a baking sheet for ease of moving in and out of the oven. Coffee mugs may be used in place of soup bowls if desired). Top each individual soup with 1 slice of toasted French bread, then top with ¼ cup of shredded cheese. Place under the oven broiler until the cheese begins to bubble. Serve immediately.
