Slow Cooker French Onion Soup

My wife makes one of the best French onion soups I have ever had but since I have nothing to do I always look for new recipes and I came across this one on line. I know 8 or 9 hours of cooking is a long time. (Deb’s recipe takes about 40 minutes) but I thought I would try this one. It came out very, very good but I did make a few changes. When I went to buy a solid piece of Gruyere cheese I almost fainted at the price so I saw a container with shredded Gruyere cheese at half the price so I used that. I also used a 17.7 oz. jar of BOLD beef broth and used beef bullion cubes to make up the rest of 64 ounces.

Deb told me that once I put the bread in the soup it woud not brown and she was right but I was ok with it.

Slow Cooker French Onion Soup
4 medium onions, sliced thin
3 garlic cloves , minced
4 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2tablespoons brown sugar
3 tablespoons flour
8 ounces of beer
64 ounces of low-sodium beef stock
2 tablespoons fresh thyme
½ teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon salt
French bread
Gruyere cheese, sliced

Set your crock pot on high, then add onions, garlic, brown sugar, butter, salt and balsamic vinegar and mix until combined. Cover and let cook for 60 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are a bit caramel and brown on the edges. Add in flour, then stir thoroughly and let sit for 5 minutes
Add in beer, beef stock, thyme, and pepper, then turn heat down to low, cover and cook for 6-8 hours. I cooked it for 7 hours.)
Cut French bread into slices.
Fill bowls to the top, then cover with slice of bread and a slice of cheese

Set under the broiler for 2-3 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
