  1. Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, cook and stir until lightly browned. Sprinkle in the sugar, and continue cooking until onions are deep golden brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in the chicken broth and vinegar and season with paprika. Mix in the bread until dissolved. Bring to a boil, then simmer over low heat for 3 minutes.
  2. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor, and blend until smooth. Serve with pork or beef.

Very Very good onion sauce. Anyone who enjoys the taste of onions will want to make this. Works well for any dish that could use a little tweaking or to add moisture to a dry meat. As far as adding calories goes, I'm sure one slice of rye to a entire recipe of onion sauce and then use a portion of it to your dish wouldn't add many calories if you think about it.:)

Rye bread turns out soggy (sp?) and adds too many calories to the meat. Thanks anyway. Love rye bread, just did not work for me

This turned out pretty good. Left out the bread and poured over pork roast in slower cooker all day. Thanks for the post.

Fabulous sauce that my DH proclaimed to be outstanding. I chose to use a dark bread and served this over pork chops. For the reviewer who said the bread became soggy obviously did not read thru the instructions correctly as the bread becomes a part of the sauce; hence the reason for running it thru the food processor. Thank you Linda!

Soggy? What?? Sauce is soggy. Bread is put through the food blender. Of course it is going to be soggy. It is sauce. Reminds me somehow of German Style cooking. I don't know why. But yummy. Bev

Excellant onion sauce made exactly as written! I was looking for a sauce to serve over grilled hamburger patties something to compliment the cabbage soup we were having the sauce was light and flavorful, served sourdough crusty chewy bread rolls to mop up the left over sauce! A fast easy dinner:)

Excellent sauce recipe. I served it on the side to accompany our crown Roast. Guests really enjoyed this.

I made it as directed but left out the rye. It was good. I don't understand that people post that it is soggy, isn't it supposed to be a sauce as in the title "Onion sauce" not onion crunchy..lol
