Williams-Sonoma Caramelized French Onion Braising Base

Need to get a great home-cooked dinner on the table in a hurry? Our timesaving sauce makes it easy to enjoy a savory, succulent braise - even on the busiest weeknights. Inspired by the famous French onion soup, we caramelized five different kinds of onions, including super-sweet Vidalias, and balanced them with aged balsamic vinegar, savory shiitake mushrooms, rich Cabernet wine and fresh herbs. Preparation is simple: just combine the sauce with sauteed chicken or beef in a large pan, then transfer to the oven to finish cooking. Serve your braise with freshly cooked pasta or rice for a meal everyone will love. 1 lb. 8.5 oz. (makes 4-6 servings). Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

Makes the Most Amazing Stew!
December 23, 2014
I used the Caramelized French Onion Braising Base with my family over Thanksgiving weekend - everybody loved it! I purchased a bottom round roast and simply followed the directions on the jar - couldn't have been an easier crock pot meal, and the flavor was delicious. We served it over mashed potatoes (with Williams Sonoma's garlic parmesan seasoning of course), and immediately decided it would be our Christmas Eve dinner as well. I'm headed back today for a few more jars!
Pros: Easy to Prepare, Good for Entertaining, Time-saver, Flavor, Great Gift

new sauces have vinegar overtone
November 15, 2014
I have tried two of the "newer" sauces and both have a vinegar overtone. This one was by far better than the truffle leek. Even though thyme is one the last ingredients ...that flavor comes thru and is a tad overpowering the rest of the flavor
Pros: Easy to Prepare, Time-saver
Cons: Flavor, unbalanced
