French Onion and Meatball Soup

French Onion and Meatball Soup

Bursting with flavor, satisfying and versatile... French onion soup and meatballs will certainly not disappoint!


  • 3 large onions, sliced
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 Tbsp flour
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 Tbsp onion soup mix
  • 3 Tbsp kosher salt
  • 12 tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice


  • 1 lb (450 g) ground beef
  • 1 small red onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 egg
  • 12 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 14 cup pareve milk
  • 12 tsp salt
  • 14 tsp pepper

Combine all meatball ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Place sliced onions and oil in an 8-quart pot over medium-high heat. Sauté until golden (around 15 minutes), stirring occasionally. Add the flour and stir until it becomes a roux. Add the water and stir until smooth. Add the onion soup mix, kosher salt, pepper, and lemon juice. Bring the soup to a boil.

Form small, nickel-sized balls out of the meatball mixture and drop into the soup. Lower heat and allow to cook for 30 minutes.
