    French Onion Soup

    ***WINNER*** Most Succulent Soup Recipe March 2013

    French Onion Soup

    1/2 cup unsalted butter
    4 onions, sliced
    2 garlic cloves, chopped
    2 bay leaves
    2 fresh thyme sprigs
    Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup red wine
    3 heaping tablespoons all-purpose flour
    2 quarts beef broth
    homemade croutons
    1/2 pound grated Gruyere


    Melt the stick of butter in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, bay leaves, thyme, and salt and pepper and cook until the onions are very soft and caramelized, about 25 minutes. Add the wine, bring to a boil, reduce the heat and simmer until the wine has evaporated and the onions are dry, about 5 minutes. Discard the bay leaves and thyme sprigs. Dust the onions with the flour and give them a stir. Turn the heat down to medium low so the flour doesn’t burn, and cook for 10 minutes to cook out the raw flour taste. Now add the beef broth, bring the soup back to a simmer, and cook for 10 minutes. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper.

    When you’re ready to eat, preheat the broiler. Ladle the soup into bowls, top each with croutons and grated cheese. Put the bowls into the oven to melt the cheese.

    * For the croutons: Cut day old french bread into cubes. Drizzle olive oil and dried herbs of your choice onto bread. Bake for 10-15 min in a 350 degree oven.
