    Default Geek's Drunken Onion Soup

    So I put this in the poultry section because it starts with a smoked Turkey. I won't go into full detail on the bird, but some things are important for the flavor of the soup

    Deboned the bird and laid flat on the counter (be food safe please) with the skin up. Strained one large bottle of Italian dressing. Keep the “chunkies” from the dressing and cream with 2 sticks of butter. Apply half of the season butter under the skin of the bird. Flip the bird and inject the strained dressing into the breast, thighs, and drums. Season the meat side with CBP, Course Sea Salt, Garlic Powder, and the remaining season butter. Place a whole white onion in the neck cavity and a split white onion in the.....other cavity (whatever that's called). Truss up that bad boy and smoke.

    Again, not going into too much detail on cooking the turkey, except this one detail: Every hour pour 1/2 of a bottle of beer over the bird. That's important because the beer will be the base of the soup.....and the other half will keep you busy every hour.

    After the bird is done and rested, reclaim the onions and roughly cut and place in a large pot along with all of the turkey drippings/beer solution. Chop up (or tear away from the bone) as much turkey as you want in the soup. Dust the pot with the following seasonings:
    Red pepper flake
    Cayenne power
    Dry Mustard

    Cook on high to rolling boil. Cover and reduce to simmer until the onions have the texture you like. Be sure to stir every 20 minutes (I usually simmer about an hour).

    Long story for such a simple dish, but very complex flavors and very rich. If you aren't a beer drinker, a dry white wine will work as well, but the finished result will not be as complex.

    Enjoy:

    Sounds very nice indeed Mr. Geek. I've always been partial to a nice onion soup. Seems like a waste to throw out so much meat just for soup though.

    Some of you will get that last part

    Yea, but as the semi-wise man said "Life is what happens while you're busy doing other things". Work work work, go team go! It's the same reason I don't get to do any competitions, which I'd really like to try someday.

    Sounds really good and I would sure like to try a bowl. What I want to know is how do you make the other 1/2 beer last I don't think I can drink that slow. But like I always say the best recipies all start out Open a beer and drink 1/2.
    Be kind to me, it's not my fault I'm a "PORK-A-HOLIC"!!
