No recipe image available.Caramelized onion and beer soup served with Parmesan cheese and crisp rye bread croutons.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 pounds onions, peeled and thinly sliced
4 large garlic cloves, finely minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (12-ounce) bottle of beer (not dark)
6 cups beef broth
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons butter
4 slices of day-old rye bread, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
Freshly grated Parmesan as an accompaniment
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a Dutch oven, cook the onions in the oil over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, until onions have caramelized. (Don't rush the process, patience has its virtue here.) Add garlic and cook for 1 minute; stir in beer and beef broth, simmer mixture, covered, for 45 minutes. Stir in sugar, salt and pepper.
  2. While the soup is simmering, in a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add bread cubes, and cook, stirring, until they are golden.
  3. Ladle soup into bowls and top with Parmesan and croutons.

Makes 6 servings.
