Easy French Onion Soup
Serves: 4
  • 2 onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsps sugar
  • ½ tsp dried marjoram
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • Salt, to taste
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 1 tbsp red wine vinegar
  • 4 thick slices French bread
  • 1 cup Swiss, Emmental or Gruyere cheese, shredded (I used a mix)
  1. In a big frying pan, heat the butter and add onions, garlic, sugar, marjoram, pepper and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring often, for about 20 minutes or until the onions are translucent and soft. Add beef stock and vinegar and bring to a boil. Simmer 10 minutes, uncovered. While it's simmering, Toast the bread slices on both sides using the broiler (keep a close eye on them!). On a baking sheet, arrange four oven-safe bowls and fill with soup. Top with toast and smother with shredded cheese. Broil on low until cheese is bubbly, melted and golden.
