Paleo Crockpot French Onion Soup

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.

 French Onion Soup

Paleo Crockpot French Onion Soup

3 Large Sweet Onions (2 lbs)
3 cups beef broth
3 cups chicken broth
2 cups water
3 TBL ghee/coconut oil
1 1/2 tsp dried thyme
salt and pepper to taste
1.  Thinly slice the onions and place them in your crockpot.  Add in (3) 1 TBL fat of your choice on top of the onions.  Turn your crockpot on high for 10-12 hours.  I did this step the night before.  This step is caramelizing your onions for the soup.
2.  Add in both bone broths, water and thyme.  Switch your crockpot over to low and cook for 8-10 hours.
….and remember….Sharing is caring!!!
