Beer, Bacon and Onion Soup

This is an interesting and simple variation on French onion soup.
Beer, Bacon and Onion Soup
Serves 4

  • 4 slices bacon, cubed
  • 2 -3 cups sliced red, white, yellow onions, shallots
  • 1 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 bottles beer
  • 2 bottles water
  • 1 tbsp Club House Le Grille steak spice or steak spice of your choice
  • 3 tbsp fresh or 1 tsp dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Shredded cheese of your choice to top bowls (I used mozza and parmesan)
  • Sliced bread to top bowls.

  1. Heat bacon over medium heat until cooked.
  2. Add onions and saute until brown
  3. Add garlic and saute for 30 seconds
  4. Add beer, water, steak spice (and dried thyme if using)
  5. Simmer 15 - 20 minutes
  6. Salt and Pepper to taste
  7. Toss in fresh thyme
  8. Spoon in oven safe bowls and top with bread and cheese.
  9. Heat under the broiler until the cheese is bubbly
  10. (If you don't have oven safe bowls, toast the bread with the cheese on it until browned and place on top of soup in bowls)

Simple! Enjoy!
