Well I kinda changed a lot...but this was a great base. I only used 3 big onions instead of four (one red, one white, one yellow as that's what I had on hand). I let them caramelize in the butter for a good 45 mins before adding the flour and sugar, and I only used 1/2 the pepper. I used two big 32 beef broth cartons, and then tossed in about 6-7 beef bouillon cubes and about a cup and 1/2 of water and the parsley and thyme. I let that simmer for about 30-45 mins before adding the white wine, a few splashes of Worcester sauce and about 4 tablespoons of a Shiraz. I let all of that simmer together for about an hour and then topped with toasted baguette pieces, provolone and swiss and broiled. DELICIOUS! I would give it 4.5 stars if I could - only thing holding me back from 5 stars is if I would have had some Gruyere cheese instead.
