Saint Patrick’s Day-Part 1

Saint Patrick’s Day is one of my favorite holidays because I like celebrating my Irish heritage and I LOVE corned beef and cabbage.  But, this year I decided to try a few new recipes for the holiday.  The first one is an onion soup (another one of my favorite meals).  But, this recipe calls for a little special ingredient…Guinness!

1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
3 cloves minced garlic
4 cups thinly sliced onions
1/2 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, chopped
1/8 cup apple cider vinegar
1  bottle Guinness beer (I used a little more than the recipe calls for but it cooks down and there is not an overpowering beer taste)
3 cups beef stock
3 bread, cubed and toasted (I used Flax Seed Ezekiel bread to make it a little healthier)
A few slices of Cheddar Cheese, sliced thin
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat
Add garlic and cook until golden brown
Add onions, season with salt, and cook for about 5 minutes stirring often
Reduce heat to low and cook for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onions are golden brown
Add the thyme, vinegar, and beer
Reduce beer by half and add the beef stock
Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 more minutes
Preheat the broiler
Transfer soup to an ovenproof serving dish or individual ovenproof soup bowls
