While this was delicious, I didn't use the steak sauce because it just sounded a little weird, and plus we didn't have any. Instead I used 1 beef bouillon cube. Next time I make this I'll use only 2 1/2 onions and I will make sure to slice them very very thinly since some of them were slightly crunchy, not like the restaurant soups. Also, it took me almost an hour and 15 minutes, not 33 minutes like it suggests, to complete this because it was impossible for me to sautee all of the onions at once in one pan. Other than that this was quite tasty and would recommend it if you have some time on your hands.

I used sweet onions and didn't have any croutons. The result was a too sweet and pretty darn boring soup with an odd A1 flavor lingering in the background. I probably won't make this again, but if I do, I'll be sure to have strongly flavored (herb and garlic) croutons and regular yellow onions.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was so good. This recipe was so good. My husband almost ate all of it in one day. He thought it was just as good, if not better than restaurant style. I used low sodium broth and seasoned bread crumbs. I didn't have swiss so I used provolone and a pinch of parmesan on top. I thought it needed a touch of salt but my husband said don't change a thing.

I added less of the steak sauce, a dash of worcestershire sauce, a dash of red wine, fresh garlic with the onions and fresh ground pepper. I also prefer the swiss cheese. But this gave me a great place to start and then I adjusted until it tasted the way I wanted it to!

Followed recipe exactly and found that soup had a sweet/tangy flavour, fixed it somewhat by adding salt and pepper. Also would cut onions in half before cutting into rings, I used rather large onions and the rings kept falling off our spoons, smaller onion pieces would be more appealing.

My husband and I loved this soup, I have made it twice now, the first time I made it with the steak sauce and didn't care for that. The second time I left out the steak sauce and added a tsp. of beef base and gave it more flavor. This has now become my favorite soup and so easy to make.

I had printed off the recipe and we had talked about how easy it sounded and how long it had been since we had eaten it. It was delicious - we did add a dash of salt, but it was just excellent!

I used mozz. cheese only, however it was still so awesome. I am making this again today for my son and his wife and daughter. It's so easy and tastey. I served with hot buttered homemade bread.
