  • 6

    medium Panoche Sweet onions (or another sweet onion)

  • 3

    cloves of garlic

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 2

    (14.5-ounce) cans beef broth

  • 3

    teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

  • 2

    cups water

  • French or sourdough bread

  • 8

    ounces Swiss cheese, grated


Thinly slice the onions and mince the garlic. In a heavy skillet over medium heat, melt the butter and add the onions. Cook until soft with frequent stirring, about 15 minutes. Add garlic and continue to cook for an additional 5 minutes. You want to soften everything up, do not brown them. Place into a slow cooker and add the beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, and water. Give everything a good stir and set the slow cooker to low heat for 6 - 8 hours. Ladle soup into bowls, then slice the bread 1/2" - 3/4" thick, float in the soup, and top with grated cheese. Using a blowtorch, carefully melt the cheese on top. Alternatively, you can toast the bread with cheese on it in a broiler or toaster oven, then float that on top of your soup.
