Description

French onion soup made in the Instant Pot, quick and easy!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 6 tablespoons of light butter
  • 4 cups of sliced  onions 
  • 1/2 tsp of dried thyme
  • 4 to 6 dashes of Worcestershire sauce
  • 32 oz  of reduced sodium beef broth
  • Cooking Spray 
  • 8 slices of Sargento Ultra Thin Baby Swiss cheese Slices 
  • 8 1 to 2  oz slices of Ciabatta loaf

Instructions

  1. Turn on the Instant Pot and Select Sauté mode (medium-low). Add the butter, and stir with a wooden spoon.
  2. Add sliced onions to your Instant Pot. Sauté for about 15-20 minutes or until onions are golden brown and caramelized. Stir occasionally.
  3. Add thyme, Worcestershire sauce and beef broth. No extra salt is needed because beef broth has a lot of salt in it already.  Stir for 1-2 minutes
  4. Cover the lid on the Instant Pot, and set it to sealing mode. Pressure cook for 20 minutes followed by a quick release. 
  5. Slice bread and spray with cooking spray. Broil 2 minutes per side or until golden.
  6. Ladle soup into oven safe bowls or ramekins. Add a slice of bread to the top of the soup. Place a slice of cheese on top of the bread and place back in the oven until the cheese is bubbly and turns golden brown.
