This meal was created around the beef drippings from Drunk Paleo Beef Ribs. However, if you don’t have the beef drippings…beef broth will work just fine! This is a meal which needs about 10 minutes of prep the night before, will cook all night long and then it becomes a throw and go meal in the morning! I’m happy to report I only had to get up 2 minutes earlier to prepare this meal in the morning. However, I was a little crabby when I saw white ‘stuff’ falling from the sky. Yes, I know that this ‘stuff’ starts with the letter ‘s’, but I refuse to use ‘that’ word in OCTOBER! It is too early for white flakes to be falling from the sky!! However, I was excited to go home tonight to my Paleo crockpot french onion soup with the cold weather in Michigan!!!
In the event you do not get 3 cups of bone broth drippings from your short ribs, it is ok! Make sure you have 6 cups of bone broth in your crockpot. In a pinch, I have made this soup with only chicken broth and it came out JUST FINE! I want to forewarn you, the taste is a bit different when only using chicken broth.
