French Onion Soup Recipe
Fry the onions very gently in the butter in a covered saucepan for 15 minutes until soft and starting to caramelize. Remove the lid, increase the heat and fry, stirring, for about 20 minutes until the onions are a rich golden brown.
Add the stock and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, part-cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
