French Onion Soup Recipe | Elijah's Xtreme
2 sweet onions, sliced thin into strips
1 1/4 cup beef stock
1 1/2 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup grated gruyere cheese
1/3 cup red wine
1-2 Tbsp Elijah's Xtreme Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce
1 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp parmesan
1 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp flour
1 tsp fresh thyme
1 bay leaf
Salt and pepper to taste
In a large pot, melt butter over medium-low heat. Add sweet onions with a dash of salt and pepper. Stir to coat then cover. Let onions cook for 75-90 minutes, stirring occasionally until onions are caramelized.
Uncover and increase heat to medium. Add flour and stir the onions to coat them in flour. Add red wine, Elijah’s Xtreme Ghost Pepper Hot Sauce, lemon, thyme, and the bay leaf, stir.
Add beef and chicken stocks then increase the heat to high. Stir occasionally while the soup comes to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to medium and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Transfer the soup to oven-safe bowls and place a slice of the baguette on top. Sprinkle soup and bread with gruyere cheese and then the parmesan.
Turn the oven broiler on high and place the soups on a baking pan then put in oven. Broil soups until the cheese melts and browns slightly.
Serve and enjoy!
