Like many other reviewers, I thought that this was just a base for onion soup. I had to modify it greatly. So, I have to rate it as written but these are my modifications. I used 3 onions; sliced as half moons, 2-2 1/2 tbsp butter, 2 cups beef broth and about 1/4 cup water, apple cider vinegar(because I didn't have wine or sherry), about 1/2 tea dried oregano. I simmered all this until the onions were soft and the flavors melded. The cider vinegar tasted strange at first. When I baked the dish with the bread and cheese (Swiss mixed with Gruyere) the finished product came out great. It ended up tasting like a real French Onion soup. Thank you for giving me something to start with. I will make this again with my variations.
