Who doesn’t love a big bowl of onion soup? However, making it can be time-consuming, as you have to sauté the onions for a long time while stirring them. This recipe allows you to skip the sautéing, as your crock pot does all the work for you.
Crockpot Onion and Flanken Soup
- Cooking and Prep: 5 h
- Serves: 8
Prepare the Soup
Combine onions, salt, pepper, and oil in a crockpot; stir to combine.
Add flanken to the crockpot; cover with onion mixture. Cover; cook on high for four to five hours, until onions are golden brown.
Add broth, wine, and miso paste; stir to combine. Cook on high for an additional hour.
Miso paste is a paste made from fermented bean curd. Used primarily in Japanese cooking, it adds umami, depth of flavor, to the dishes. Miso paste is available in a variety of colors; the darker the color, the stronger the flavor. I use them interchangeably.

Replies:You can leave it out but I would substitute it with some 1-2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
