In a stock pot, melt the oil and butter on medium heat. Then, add the onions. Sauté them until they become golden. Stir occasionally and then lower the heat to medium. When the onions are done, cook for 3 minutes.
Put the apple cider vinegar to deglaze the pan. Increase the heat and bring it to boil. Cook until the ACV lowers, that is, around 5 minutes. Now, add the garlic and the broth and boil them. Reduce the heat to low.
