Fantastic French onion soup is made even heartier with beef stew meat. Start the soup in the morning and come home to a no-fuss dinner.

Ingredients

7
small onions, cut in half and thinly sliced (about 7 cups)
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
2
tablespoons sugar
2
dried bay leaves
1 1/2
pounds beef stew meat
3
cans (10 1/2 ounces each) condensed beef consommé
1/4
cup dry sherry or apple juice
1
cup apple juice
1/4
teaspoon dried thyme leaves
8
slices ( 1/2 inch thick) French bread, toasted
2
cups shredded Swiss cheese (8 ounces)

Directions

  • 1 Toss onions, butter and sugar in 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Top with bay leaves and beef.
  • 2 Cover and cook on low heat setting 9 to 10 hours or until onions are deep brown.
  • 3 Stir in beef consommé, sherry, apple juice and thyme. Increase heat setting to high. Cover and cook 10 minutes or until hot. Remove bay leaves.
  • 4 To serve, spoon into ovenproof soup bowls and top each serving with slice of toast and 1/4 cup cheese. If desired, broil with tops 6 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and begins to brown.
Tips  

For best results, don't double this recipe. If the onions are packed too deeply in the slow cooker, they steam and stay pale and boiled tasting instead of caramelizing. They would eventually caramelize, but not before the beef would become dried out and overcooked.

A fresh tossed salad with a vinaigrette would taste great with this rich soup. Spoil your family with a small fancy French pastry from the bakery for dessert.

If you broil the soup with cheese on top, place the soup bowls on pretty plates to protect fingers and your table from the hot bowls.
