Super Easy and Delicious 1015 Onion Soup

Categories: Recipes

Right now, we happen to be in one of those very few months in Houston when one can truly enjoy a nice bowl of hot soup.

This recipe is adapted from a favorite made by my friend Cindy Smith. It is perfect for a cold, rainy day when you're craving something warm and savory, with little output required. The stars of the recipe are Texas 1015 Sweet Yellow Onions. There are just a few other ingredients, so be sure to use the best quality you can find.

The recipe, after the jump.

1015 Onion Soup

  • 5 large 1015s, or sweet yellow onions, sliced
  • 1 stick of unsalted butter
  • 3 - 14.25 ounce cans beef broth, organic if possible, with salt
  • 1 ½ cups dry white wine

Melt the butter in a large, hot soup pot.

Add onions and cook until tender, about 45 minutes.

Add in the beef broth and wine.

Simmer 5-10 minutes, or until hot and steaming.

For extra decadence, add in freshly toasted French bread croutons and Gruyere.

I always look forward to the 1015 Onions coming to Canino's. I'll try this recipe out on them soon - thanks!

I made my first French Onion soup this past Christmas and it received rave reviews. It was also one of the easiest things I've made (once you get past cutting the onions...) The recipe I used had chicken stock, beef consumme and cider and it was incredible. I simply followed this video. Try it out! (And I used a big pot, as I no longer have an electric skillet.)



i tried that recipe, and it is one of the only alton recipes i didn't really like. i think it was too sweet for me. i was really excited to try it, too.

Hmm. Did you use a chardonay? That was what I used, and I made sure to have it simmer down to a syrup prior to adding any of the other liquids, garni, etc. I also made sure that the onions were that dark brown that was shown in the video, which took closer to two hours than the 45 mins.
