Try the onions in the oven to get them good and dark. Makes such a difference.

Nah Gris, it's all about the kitchen bouquet. That's how you get the deep rich flavor

Or the 2 hour process of browning and deglazing until no liquid is left like 7 times.



Nothing for me. Way too nervous.

Well, I use some of that in my roast gravy because I don't make a roux. Makes it too thick for me. I brown in flour, but I have a thing about the gravy being really dark. I put some KB, a T of concentrated tomato paste and sometimes, a bit of beef base that I order online in about 1 1/2 to 2 cups of water depending on the size of the roast. I heat that up together and pour it over the browned roast before it goes into a slow oven. Makes dynamite gravy. I don't use it in FO soup or gumbo, though. Have never needed it. I have to have those onions really dark.

I would, but I've never done it like that so when I looked up recipes and saw TWO HOURS, I said no. It's 8pm. Ain't nobody got time for dat.

Deglaze and do it again like seven times. I learned from my grandmother. An attractive Julia Child.

Seven? My stomach is about to eat my entire body..

ETA: It will be deglazed with my red wine and broth..

But not 7 times.

Even Julia Child's recipe doesn't say to deglaze 7 times.. And that was the one I was following with a couple tweaks.

That is why you have cheese, bread and wine while cooking onion soup.

I take weekly drug tests on Wednesdays. No wine Sunday-Tuesday. Cheese and bread loses it's fun without wine.

Ahhhh.. No good blow, no start vehicle. Oops. I was invited to BR Beer Fest, just drank too much Saturday morning to drive up.

Well actually, I don't have the breathalyzer anymore. But I am enrolled in a "rehab" program every Wednesday night (this is all stuff you have to do to get DUI off your record) and they do 3 random drug tests over the 6 weeks. I may not even be tested this Wednesday, but it's not worth the risk.
