French Onion Soup

 By Chef Steffani  

    • 3 Tbls. unsalted butter
    • 7 large yellow onions halved lengthwise, sliced 1/4″ thick
    • 1 1/2 tsp. Kosher salt
    • 2 C water
    • 1/2 C sherry (preferrably dry)
    • 5 C  chicken broth (low-sodium/low -fat ideal)
    • 1 1/2 C beef broth
    • 5 sprigs fresh thyme
    • 1 bay leaf
    •  Ground black pepper
    • Bread slices and Gruyère (or swiss) for garnish

Directions

1. Adjust oven rack to lower-half of oven. Heat oven to 400 degrees. Spray heavy-bottomed  7-quart Dutch oven with nonstick spray.  Add butter, onions and 1 tsp. salt. Cover Dutch over and cook 1 hour. Remove Dutch oven from oven and stir onions. Return to oven with lid slightly ajar and continue to cook until onions are caramelized, 1 1/2 to 1 3/4, stirring onions and scraping bottom and sides once or twice during cooking. BE PATIENT. Caramelization takes time and cannot be rushed.

2. Remove Dutch oven and place on stove-top over medium heat. Cook onions until liquid evaporates, about 15  minutes, , stirring frequently.  Continue stir until bottom of Dutch oven is coated with dark crust (6 to 8 minutes). This is called FOND. Stir in 1/4 cup water, scraping pot bottom to loosen crust, and cook until water evaporates and pot bottom has formed another dark crust, 6 to 8 minutes. Repeat process, adding 1/4 cup water, 2 to 3 more times, until onions are dark brown and water is gone. Deglaze with sherry, stirring until sherry is gone.

3. Add chicken and beef broth, 2 cups water, thyme, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon salt, scraping up any final bits of browned crust on bottom and sides of pot. Increase heat to high and bring to simmer. Reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer 30 minutes. Remove herbs, then season with pepper, adding additional salt if needed.

4.  To serve: Adjust oven rack 6 inches from broiler element and heat broiler. Set individual broiler-safe crocks on baking sheet and fill each with about 1 3/4 cups soup. Top each bowl with 1 or 2 baguette slices (do not overlap slices) and sprinkle evenly with Gruyère. Broil until cheese is melted and bubbly around edges, 3 to 5 minutes.
