Beef French Onion Soup

Hearty, full-flavored soup with beef, onions, and mushrooms in a rich beef broth that is stress-free to prepare. Delicious topped with Cheesy toasted French bread. Enjoying French onion soup at home became so much easy. 


  • 2 cups thinly sliced onions (about 2 medium onions)
  • 1 pound boneless sirloin steak, trimmed of fat and cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 8 ounces sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon light brown sugar
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) beef consomme
  • 1 cup water
  • 1-1/2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons, dry sherry (optional)
  • 5 slices French bread
  • 3/4 cup shredded reduced-fat swiss cheese


  1. Coat a large skillet with nonstick cooking spray, and set over medium heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Add the meat, mushrooms, garlic, and brown sugar, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the meat is browned and mushrooms tender, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Transfer the onion and meat mixture to a 4-quart slow cooker.
  3. Add the broth, consomme, and water and stir to combine.
  4. Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 5 to 7 hours.
  5. Add the soy sauce and sherry and cook for 5 more minutes.
  6. When ready to serve, toast the bread. Sprinkle with the grated cheese and broil until melted.
  7. Ladle the soup into individual bowls; then float a slice of the broiled cheesy bread on top of each serving of soup.
