My wife and I love Outbacks Creamy Onion Soup. I have been working on perfecting this recipe for a few months. After about 6 different batches I was finally able to mimic the recipe to perfectly.

Unlike most onion soups that us a beef broth for the base this one will only use chicken sock. I tried it a few times with beef stock and it just seemed off, so I kept reducing it until I found it tasted better with no beef stock at all.

Excellent, Thank You so much for your hard work and research. I make the soup in a crock pot, low all day. Before serving sauté same amount of onions, add to individual bowl. By cooking all day onion break down and make broth even thicker!

Very nice. Try ground white pepper instead of or combined with black. You'll be surprised.

excellent. Thank you so much for your hard work perfecting the recipe . I used the juice from canned mushrooms instead of the Chardonnay. Tastes just like at the outback. Thanks again.

This is BETTER than Outback's!!! Theirs contains MSG which causes lots of allergic reactions in many people. Thanks for posting this!!! Sláinte!
MSG is delicious and hasn't proven to have any worse affects on anyone than salt.
