Info
I love onion soup and the name of this recipe from Smoke & Spice was “Better - Than - French Onion Soup” which got my interest immediately. The recipe used smoked onions, dry red wine as well as a homemade BBQ sauce together with the typical beef broth. The soup was served with toasted thin slices of a French boulle and Gruyere cheese. The soup tasted similar but different to any onion soup I’ve tried before. It had lots of flavors going on besides the normal ones I associate with onion soup. At first I didn’t care for it, but the more I ate it the more I liked it. I think it caught me by surprise and it just took some getting used to. What I like about this recipe is i can toss some onions on the smoker when I am making something else and I have the beginnings of a great onion soup.
