Both of my older boys have their birthdays fall during Spring Break each year. Well, one tradition that we have is we let the birthday child choose their favorite restaurant to eat at for supper that night. Well, my oldest always chooses a Japanese Hibachi grill where they cook in front of you. One of his favorite things to get there is their Onion soup. He loves it so much that only getting it once a year is not enough, so my husband decided to start making it at home. We had it for the first time this past weekend and it was awesome!!!! Here's the recipe he came up with...
5 cups water
4 chicken bouillon cubes
salt and pepper, to taste
1/2 white onion, coarsely chopped
1 smashed clove of garlic
1/2 carrot, coarsely chopped
1/2 celery stalk, coarsely chopped
Thinly sliced mushrooms
Sliced green onions
One of the following options:
1/2 white onion that is thinly sliced, 1 cup veggie oil, milk, AP flour - dip your onions in the milk, then the flour, shake off and drop into the hot oil. Once golden brown, drain on a paper towel.
French Fried Onions
You put the first set of ingredients in a pot & bring to a boil...then cover & simmer for a couple hours. Then you strain it, and then put in the mushrooms & green onions. Then you do the last step where you either put in the homemade fried onions, or store bought french fried onions, or drizzle tempura batter to make that bread-like consistency that is my favorite part!!! ;) Enjoy!
