When we were little my Oma would serve this sauce over either pork or beef.

Very Very good onion sauce. Anyone who enjoys the taste of onions will want to make this. Works well for any dish that could use a little tweaking or to add moisture to a dry meat. As far as adding calories goes I'm sure one slice of rye to a entire recipe of onion sauce and then use a portion of it to your dish wouldn't add many calories if you think about it.:) Read More

Rye bread turns out soggy (sp?) and adds too many calories to the meat. Thanks anyway. Love rye bread just did not work for me Read More

This turned out pretty good. Left out the bread and poured over pork roast in slower cooker all day. Thanks for the post. Read More

Soggy? What?? Sauce is soggy. Bread is put through the food blender. Of course it is going to be soggy. It is sauce. Reminds me somehow of German Style cooking. I don't know why. But yummy. Bev Read More

Fabulous sauce that my DH proclaimed to be outstanding. I chose to use a dark bread and served this over pork chops. For the reviewer who said the bread became soggy obviously did not read thru the instructions correctly as the bread becomes a part of the sauce; hence the reason for running it thru the food processor. Thank you Linda! Read More

I made it as directed but left out the rye. It was good. I don't understand that people post that it is soggy isn't it supposed to be a sauce as in the title "Onion sauce" not onion crunchy..lol Read More

A fast easy dinner:) Read More
