French Onion Soup Recipe


  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, then add the onions and cook on low heat, stirring, until golden and caramelized - about 12 to 15 minutes.
  2. Add in the vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper, and mix well, stirring to combine. Remove from the fire.
  3. Add in the flour, stir, then add the beef stock and wine. Return to the fire on low, and simmer, stirring, until thickened and reduced. Remove from heat.
  4. Set oven to broil.
  5. Toast the slices of baguette.
  6. Remove from fire and transfer into 6 oven-ready ramekins or oven-proof pots, top with a slice of baguette, sprinkle heavily with gruyere and place into a baking sheet.
  7. Broil until oven until cheese is melted – this will only take a couple of minutes so keep an eye on it! Serve and enjoy.
