First thing is just ten minutes of cooking the onions is not near long enough, you need to cook the onions over a medium heat until the are golden brown (caramelized), this can take awhile, but it is what gives flavor to the onions. I added some minced garlic right before adding the flour. I also cooked my onions in a mixture of bacon grease and butter.
I bought a generic beef broth since I had no fresh left in my freezer...what a mistake to buy a big store's generic broth, I actually tasted it before using it and it pretty much tasted like water. So i added a cube of beef bouillon and a good dash of Worcestershire sauce. I used only the broth, if I added water it would really be lacking flavor.
Also the bread at the end needs to be quickly broiled until golden brown on low under the broiler and not baked for another ten minutes, or it gets mushy.
If I make again I'll only use some fresh beef broth or beef consume. My onions were great all by themselves, I used fresh thyme from the garden to spice them. I had some yellow, some red and some sweet.
