I don't know why, but I've always wanted to make my own french onion soup. I think maybe because it sounds so easy. Onions, beef broth, Worcestershire sauce, water, bread, and Swiss cheese. Sounds easy, right?
I had a really hard time getting the onions thin enough, as it's difficult to slice when there are tears streaming down your face and your concentration is focused on not slicing off a finger.
It didn't come out the way I hoped. It tasted nothing like what you can get in a restaurant. The cheese was good, but mostly it just tasted like onions and beef broth.
