French Onion Soup with Guinness
Jennifer IserlohThis year for St. Patrick's Day, I'm making French onion soup with an Irish twist - it's made with Guinness beer and aged Irish cheddar.
It turns out that the beer's "Guinness is Good for You" slogan from the 1920s might actually have some truth to it, according to the 1993 article from the BBC, "Guinness Could Really Be Good for You." Plus, the beer's naturally deep chocolate color is the perfect match for rich, darkly caramelized onions and beef broth that makes the deep brown base for my soup.
