Remember last week how I told you that the white wine combined with the beef stock makes for a much richer and flavorful French Onion Soup?
Well, this week we’re turning to beer…specifically Negra Modelo beer. You don’t need much and can absolutely substitute with beef broth.
BUT…just like the French Onion Soup, the beer brings up the flavors and makes for a ridiculously delicious soup. Not to mention, a super budget-friendly soup too!
Give this a try and let me know what you think! #negramodeloFTW
