Best French Onion Soup Recipe
How to make French Onion Soup. This onion soup recipe is a great way to use up a lot of onions, and it’s an easy soup to prepare, but it will take a little time to cook. The key to great French onion soup is caramelizing the onions into a gooey, rich, golden sweetness. Avoid using a non-stick pan, since this will make caramelizing the onions take longer. Yellow or sweet onions are best for this recipe. Cook the onions down until they begin to release their sugars, brown, and stick to the pot. Sticking to the pot is good when it comes to caramelizing onions. And deglazing the pot with a bit of vinegar or white wine will add fantastic flavor to the French onion soup. In this video, I didn’t have to deglaze the pot, but I still added vinegar, just for that flavor zing.
