The Melting Pot is a fondue place where you can enjoy a delicious, leisurely meal. Unfortunately, it's rather expensive. I found this recipe on another website posted by Uncle Phaedrus. Serve with your choice of uncooked meats and veggies. Let guests cook their choice of meats and veggies in the fondue broth.
- Heat vegetable stock in fondue pot until it begins to simmer.
- Add all other ingredients, bring to simmer.
- Place individual pieces of desired meat or veggies on fondue fork and put in pot until correct temperature has been reached. Lobster and shrimp may take under a minute to cook while beef and pork will take slightly longer. Take the necessary precautions so you don't eat raw meat.
This was just like the Melting Pot and less expensive. For 2, we used 1/2 large chicken breast (5 oz), 6 oz beef fillet, some large chunks of potatoes, mushrooms, cauliflower and broccoli florets. For dipping sauces, we used horseradish cream, blue cheese butter, BBQ, sweet & sour, teriyaki, and a Thai style peanut. For company, we are planning to serve all of the above with a Spring mix salad with pecans, dried cranberry, and raspberry dressing, plus ice cream for dessert. Awesome!
We tried this recipe several times and really liked it, then we went to the Melting Pot and had theirs... it was soo much better. I tasted the Melting Pots version and it was much more strong than this recipe. The next time we made fondue I added 3 Knorr vegetable bouillon cubes and a bit more wine... voilÃ !
Great Fondue, thanks! Everyone loved it! I added 2 bullion cubes and kind of wish I did'nt, it made it a bit salty and took away from the wine/merlot flavor so be carefull and make it as written first, only add boullion after you let everything simmer together if you think it still needs more kick!
