We buy hinds of beef in order to cut down on the cost of meat. They always ask if we want the bones and I say yes. Then I have to boil the bones and make beef broth. The best use for the homemade beef broth that I have found is this recipe.

  • Portion size 6 servings
  • Credits : Wendy Barker

Ingredients

  • 4 large white onions
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 5 cups beef broth (homemade if possible)
  • 5 cups water
  • 6 slices French bread (dried)
  • 1 cup grated mozzarella cheese
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Method

1. Cook onions in butter 1 hour over low heat. Stir often. (Onions will decrease in volume.) Add sugar. Increase heat to medium. Stir constantly until onions turn caramel in colour. 2. Add consommé or beef broth and water. Simmer 5 minutes. Add pepper and salt to taste. 3. Place French bread in soup bowls. Pour soup over. Top with cheeses. Broil until lightly browned.
