The Vidalia onions will soon be in season in the South and always prepare this recipe using them. Any onion will work but I especially love the sweet Vidalia.

Sorry, but we didn't think it was especially good. Onions came out too soft and there was too much liquid--although I used much less. Maybe adding some fresh sliced mushrooms might help?

Wonderful, absolutely wonderful!It did take bit longer to cook the onions and I used vegetable broth to accommodate the vegetarian in the family. In total the dish is way past awesome. Even the onion-haters loved this one. Thank you so much for posting this.

This was very yummy! Some things to note: I didn't know how much salt to add, and it turned out fairly salty... also I didn't have the bouillon CUBES, so I just put powedered stock in... next time I will put less salt in. It was a little runny, so I kept it in a bit longer until the broth had evaporated some. My boyfriend loved it! :) Easy to make, and great with meat.
