Soupe a l'oignon

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 tablespoon (Heaping) Butter
2 smalls Onions; thinly sliced
1 teaspoon Flour
3 cups Beef Broth Or Water
\N \N Salt And Pepper; to taste
2 \N Thin Toast Slices
1 tablespoon Parmesan Or Swiss Cheese; grated

Melt the butter in a saucepan and add the onions. Cook very slowly, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon. The secret of a perfect onion soup lies in how the onions are cooked. They must be thoroughly cooked and still be soft and of a light golden color before any liquid is added. Then, stir in the flour and cook a little. Pour in the beef broth, add salt and freshly ground pepper to taste, and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes. Correct the seasoning, if needed. Place slices of toast in soup tureen, sprinkle with cheese, and pour the soup over it. Gratin in a moderately hot oven or under the broiler.

Serves 4 to 6
