I didn't have beef consomme in the house but then remembered that I still had the sauce left over from the French Dip recipe I had made the night before. It was a great sauce so I figured it would help to make a great soup. I'm happy to say that my family said it was the best onion soup they'd ever had. Read More

Definitely need to cook the onions at least a full half hour to get them tender. Also I didn't have consumme so I just used extra broth and it turned out great. Read More
