Print Recipe


  • 2 large red onions
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 2 tsp thyme
  • 1/3 cup red wine
  • 8 cups beef broth
  • 1 tbsp worcestershire
  • 1 bay leaf


  • In a large pot over medium-high heat, melt the butter.
  • Add onions to the butter and saute until softened (about 10 minutes). Remember to stir often and cook the onions longer for more flavor.
  • When onions have developed a nice color, add the red wine to release all the flavor from the onions. Make sure to scrape up any bits stuck to the pot for maximum flavor.
  • Add broth, worcestershire, thyme and bay leaf to the pot and bring to a boil over high heat.
  • Reduce heat to medium or medium-low and simmer for about 20 minutes, uncovered. Stir occasionally to keep things from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  • Remove thyme and bay leaf. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
