Quick and Easy substitution for the boxed stuff you get at the store. If you want a lower sodium version use Substitute for 1 Envelope Onion Soup Mix for the onion soup mix.

This was tasty and quite quick to make. I reduced the soy sauce to 3 tbsp, the pepper to 1/4 tsp, and used 2 cloves garlic. I used a Dutch Oven to prepare this and it worked fine. Will make this again. Thanx!
