Slow Cooker French Onion Soup...


Soup, Living From Glory To Gloty Blog



Slow Cooker French Onion Soup



INGREDIENTS
¼ cup butter
4 medium sweet onions, halved and thinly sliced
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons flour
1 cup beer (You do not need to add this)
2 quarts low-sodium beef stock or Use Your own fresh made beef stock if you have some
½ teaspoon pepper
1 baguette, sliced (You can also use croutons)
Gruyere cheese, sliced or grated (Parmesan is also good)



INSTRUCTIONS
Turn on your slow cooker and set to high. Add butter and let melt. Add onions, garlic, vinegar, brown sugar, and salt. Mix well. Cover and let cook for 1-1.5 hours, stirring every 15 minutes, until onions begin to caramelize and turn brown. Stir in flour, allow to cook for a couple minutes, then stir in beer and beef stock a bit at a time, stirring well between each addition to avoid lumps. Stir in thyme and pepper. Cover and cook for 6-8 hours on low. Taste and season with additional salt, if desired.
To serve: Top baguette slices with cheese and broil until cheese is bubbly and golden. Serve on top of soup.



After weeks of sweets and heavy foods, it is nice to have a lighter fare such as a warm bowl of soup!

Thank you for posting this, Roxy. I appreciate it so much because it suits the season so well. And the slow cooker is a wonderful aide to the homemaker, ad well as providing a comforting aroma at home.

Roxy, this looks fantastic! Just the thing for winter comfort.
I think I will make it for my Dad (93, nearly 94)...I'd forgotten, but he loves French onion soup.
Hope your Christmas has been a blessed one.

French Onion soup is a favorite of mine and I have never made it from scratch. I usually order it in a restaurant. It looks like the secret ingredient is balsamic vinegar! No wonder I enjoy it so much! This is going into my recipe box!

Mmm . . . just love French onion soup. And so much better made at home b/c you can control the sodium content. Hope you're having a wonderful week Roxy. xo

Hi Roxy,
When I first went out to a fancy restaurant as a young girl I had French Onion soup. I couldn't believe how good it was with the main ingredient being onions! This is still today one of my favorite soups. Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home.
