Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    3 medium onions, peeled, halved then sliced in transparent pieces

    4 cups beef stock (left overs from pressure cooker chuck roast)

    4 cups water

    1/2 stick unsalted butter

    2 tsp. minced garlic

    generous pinch herbs d' Provence

    1/2 tsp. sea salt

    2 tsp. fresh ground black peppercorn

    4 Tbsp. grated Parmesan Cheese






Tips

I used the cast iron skillet from breakfast that we had fried sausage and bacon in for omelets. This gave a GREAT browning color to my onions. Be sure to use HOT water for rinsing the hot skillet from your onions so it doesn't make such a mess or possibly warp your pan.
