French Onion Soup

From the blogger: "Slow-simmered French Onion Soup is a delicious meal to warm up with this season. The richly caramelized onions and slowly simmered broth are incredible. French Onion Soup has always intimidated me. I'm not sure why since I'm pretty brave in the kitchen. When the temperatures dropped, signaling the beginning of Fall (only to tease us for a bit and warm back up!), I decided to give it a whirl. The best part is that many of us often have all of these ingredients in our kitchen at any given time."

Preparation Time20 min

Cooking Time3 hr

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 pounds yellow onions, trimmed and sliced root to tip
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 4 cups beef broth, preferably organic
  • 2 whole bay leaves
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Heat butter in a large, high-sided skillet over medium heat. Add sliced onions and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, approximately 45 minutes to one hour.

  2. Deglaze the bottom of the pan by adding the red wine and balsamic vinegar and gently scraping the browned bits off the bottom with a spatula.

  3. Add the broth, bay leaves, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and sprigs of fresh thyme. Season with additional salt and black pepper, if desired, and stir to combine.

  4. Increase heat to high and bring to a rapid bowl, then immediately reduce heat to medium-low. Loosely cover the skillet with a lid and simmer, stirring occasionally, for two hours.

  5. Remove from heat and discard the thyme stems and bay leaves. Divide the soup between four large oven-safe ramekins or bowl. Top with slices of the Gruyère cheese, followed by the freshly grated Parmesan cheese.

  6. Place top oven rack in the second position from top and set the broiler to high.

  7. Arrange ramekins on a large, rimmed baking sheet and place on the top oven rack. Broil until the cheese is melted and golden brown, approximately 8-10 minutes. Remove from oven and serve immediately garnished with a few fresh thyme leaves. Enjoy!
