Onion and Flanken Soup
  • 12 onions, sliced into half-moons
  • 1 Tablespoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup canola oil
  • 2 pounds bone-in flanken
  • 4 cups beef, chicken, or vegetable broth
  • ¾ cup red wine
  • ¼ cup red miso paste
  1. Combine onions, salt, pepper, and oil in a crockpot; stir to combine.
  2. Add flanken to the crockpot; cover with onion mixture. Cover; cook on high for 4-5 hours, until onions are golden brown.
  3. Add broth, wine, and miso paste; stir to combine. Cook on high for an additional hour.
COOKING TIPS: 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.
