Default French Onion Soup in the Crockpot

I could not be more THRILLED with this!

I love French Onion Soup, but hated the carmelizing step! This method omits the standing around, making the slow cooker do all the work while you're sleeping.

And the next day, after adding the beef broth and sherry, you can cook the soup on low all day, or until you are ready to plate it up.

Brilliant!

And the house smells incredible for 24 hours!

I will always make French Onion Soup this way from now on!

French Onion Soup in the Crockpot

3 lbs. yellow onions, peeled, cut in half then sliced
1 teas. sugar
2 T. butter
2 T. olive oil

2 boxes beef broth or stock
1/2 cup sherry
few sprigs fresh thyme, if you have it

Gruyere cheese, grated
French bread
Chopped green onions

Place onions, butter, sugar, olive oil in crockpot and cook on low overnight, or 10 to 12 hours, until onions are very brown.

Add broth, sherry and thyme. Cook on low another 10 or so hours (doesn't matter how much longer than say 6 hours you go), until ready to serve.

Toast slices of French bread for croutons. Preheat oven to 375. Dish the soup into individual oven-proof bowls. Place a crouton on each serving and cover with grated cheese. Heat in the oven until the cheese melts, then place under broiler for a few minutes until cheese is browned.

What you see in my first photo is a 3 lb. bag of onions (sliced on a mandoline).

They were dark brown in real life - the flash on my camera made them look lighter.

Details, details, Andy.

Okay, I posted the recipe from memory, since it's so easy. I adapted it from two online recipes.

Sounds wonderful.
What is the size of the boxes of broth?

I wonder how I can convert this to the pressure cooker.

Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

Never explain yourself. Your friends don't need it and your enemies won't believe it anyway.

I made minestrone today using that very same product.
It's a huge batch and should feed more that 30.

Next week will be onion soup for sure.
