Chin Dribblin' Savory French Onion Soup

What You'll Need:

  • 6 yellow onions
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar
  • 1/2 cup Chin Dribblin Tamarind Yakisoba Sauce
  • 8 cups of beef stock
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 1 cup tamari
  • 1/2 cup sherry vinegar
  • 1 cup brandy
  • 3 bay leaves
  • 6 sprigs of thyme
  • 1/4 cup chili paste
  • 1/2 cup of chicken bouillon powder
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 4 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of salt

For topping:

  • Gruyere cheese
  • French Bread


  • Julienne onions and add to pot with the olive oil and butter. Cook them low and slow for about 45 minutes. During the cooking breakdown process, sprinkle in the 2 tablespoons of sugar (this will help the caramelizing process and add sweetness). Once your onions are nice and brown and fully caramelized, add your brandy to deglaze the pot.
  • Once deglazed, add all other ingredients and allow to bring to a boil. Once boiling, lower heat to a nice simmer and allow to cook for another 20 minutes.
  • When finished simmering, discard thyme and bay leaves and adjust salt and pepper ratio as needed.
  • When ready to serve grab an oven proof bowl, and turn oven to broil.
  • Ladle soup into bowl, add French bread and layer gruyere on top. Place into oven and allow for cheese to melt and become golden brown and bubbly.
  • Once fully cooked, pull out of oven carefully and serve. ENJOY!
