  • 1 kilo or 2.5 lbs yellow onions

  • 125 grams or 1 stick unsalted butter

  • 4 tbsp or 1/4 cup flour

  • 1 cup white wine

  • 3 liters or 12 cups beef broth

  • 2 twigs thyme

  • 2 bay leaves

  • 2 tbsp PitmasterX Texas Rub
  • 3 cloves garlic

  • 1/2 a loaf of stale bread

  • 1 bunch parsley

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 125 ml or 1/2 cup olive oil

  • 200 gram or 7 oz. Gruyère cheese

How to

The soup

  1. Begin by igniting a fire with wood logs or charcoal, allowing it to burn down into glowing embers.
  2. Roast 1 kilo (2.5 lbs) of yellow onions, with the skin on, amidst the ambers for approximately 20 minutes. Remove the onions and let them cool before peeling and slicing.
  3. In a heated pan, melt unsalted butter. Sauté the sliced onions at a low temperature until they turn soft, which will take about 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Introduce the flour, ensuring it is fully cooked, then pour in white wine, allowing it to boil down until moisture is nearly evaporated.
  5. Incorporate the remaining ingredients: 3 liters or 12 cups beef broth, 2 sprigs of thyme, 2 bay leaves and 2 tablespoons of PitmasterX Texas Seasoning.

Cheese crust

  1. Cut stale bread into small cubes.
  2. Grate 3 cloves of garlic and finely chop a bunch of parsley.
  3. Combine 1/2 cup of olive oil with garlic and parsley, adding 1 teaspoon of table salt.
  4. Drizzle the olive oil mixture over the bread cubes, allowing them to absorb the flavors.
  5. Roast the bread crumbs until crisp.


  1. Grate Gruyère cheese.
  2. Fill 2/3 of a bowl with the prepared onion soup.
  3. Top off the bowl with the roasted garlic bread.
  4. Sprinkle Gruyère cheese generously and place it under the broiler in the oven or beneath glowing embers until the cheese is melted and golden brown. Serve piping hot for a delightful experience!
