How to Make Famous Barr's French Onion Soup


  1. Slice onions and saute them for 1.5 hours in the melted butter. I personally like using a large dutch oven for making this recipe.
  2. After your 1.5 hours is up then you can add the other ingredients to the pot with the exception of the beef bouillon. Saute this mixture for an additional 10 min to infuse the flavors.
  3. Add your beef bouillon and simmer for 2 hours.
  4. It is recommended to refrigerate this over night to help the flavor develop more but I don't have that type of will power and have to dig in right away!
