Author Notes: I make this soup a lot because I always have everything I need on hand. Best of all, it only has 5 ingredients (if you don't count salt and pepper). It's good pureed or with the slices of onion floating around, and it freezes well. —Erin McDowell
Makes: 1 1/2 quarts
tablespoons olive oil
onions, thinly sliced
cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper, to taste
tablespoons apple cider vinegar
3 (14 oz)
cans beef broth (or 6 cups homemade)
- Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onions, and toss to coat evenly in oil.
- Reduce heat to low and saute, stirring occasionally, until the onions are golden brown and caramelized, about 10-12 minutes
- Stir in the garlic, and season well with salt and pepper.
- Deglaze the pan with the vinegar, and stir until it reduces completely. Add the broth, and bring the soup to a simmer. Simmer until the soup has good flavor, about 20-25 minutes.
