  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 medium onions, 6 oz each, sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 quart beef broth, not low-sodium
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper


  • Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat, about 4 minutes. Add the onions and patiently cook, stirring often, until caramelized, 15-20 minutes.
  • Add the flour and mix with a wooden spoon about 1 minute, until it starts to brown.
  • Add the wine. Mix well. Cook about 2 minutes, until most of the wine evaporates.
  • Add the beef broth and the black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, stirring often, until soup is noticeably thicker, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
