A whiskey twist makes this French Onion Soup inspired recipe Irish!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 cups chopped onions
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1 1/2 tbsps minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup whiskey
  • 8 cups beef broth
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 2 tsps thyme
  • 1-2 dashes Worchestershire sauce
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: Better Than Boullion Beef Base

TOPPING

  • French baguette
  • Mozzarella cheese (I used herb and garlic mozzarella and it was super yummy)


DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a large pot, over medium-high heat (if you want specifics I cooked on a 6-7) add the butter and onions, stir. Brown the onions for 30-40 minutes, stirring often. If you find that the onions are sticking too much to the bottom, add more butter or a splash or two of the beef broth.
  2. Add the garlic and flour and stir for roughly a minute.
  3. Now the fun part, add the whiskey and scrape the bottom of the pan. Get all the bits and simmer the alcohol down for 8-10 minutes, over medium height.
  4. Next add the beef broth, bay leaves, thyme, Worcestershire sauce, sea salt, and pepper. Taste and if it's not rich add a heaping spoonful of beef bouillon (I used Better Than Boullion - get it at Costco or Amazon).
  5. Simmer over medium heat for 35 minutes.
