Ingredients
  • 2 1/2 pounds yellow onions, halved, and sliced 1/4-inch thick (8 cups)
  • 1/4 pound unsalted butter
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup medium-dry sherry
  • 1/2 cup brandy or Cognac
  • 1 1/2 cups good dry white wine
  • 4 cups beef stock
  • 4 cups veal stock
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground white pepper
  • Freshly grated Parmesan
Directions

In a large stockpot on medium-high heat, saute the onions with the butter and bay leaf for 20 minutes, until the onions turn a rich golden brown color. Deglaze the pan with the sherry and brandy and simmer uncovered for 5 minutes. Add the white wine and simmer uncovered for 15 more minutes.

Add the beef and veal stocks plus salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf, taste for salt and pepper, and serve hot with grated Parmesan.
