Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour
Servings 4 servings
- 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.
