We loved this. Added more garlic as suggested and it was perfect!! Served it with chicken, beef tenderloin, Mahi Mahi, crimini mushrooms, baby potatoes and broccoli. We ate to our hearts content and had to keep adding water to the pot once the extra broth was gone. We had 5 big appetites. We'll need to double the recipe next time. VERY DELISH.
Thank you for this wonderful recipe. I made this for our New Years Day dinner with the family and we loved it. The broth is so flavourful (I left out the seafood sauce and lessened the amount of pepper as per other comments) I found that cooking in the broth made me feel less bloated and heavy feeling that I get with cooking with oil, plus the house smelled good with the broth. I had beef, prawns, chicken, mushrooms, broccoli and ramen noodles. I made a garlic butter for the prawns and a creamy mustard dip for the beef and chicken. Cook the ramen noodles separately and then add to broth and then you can spoon it out with a bit of broth to eat in a small bowl with the veggies. I look forward to making this recipe again next year or maybe earlier.
Looking forward to having this on Christmas Eve with family
We made this for our Christmas Eve dinner. We make lots of dishes that everyone can pick from. This beef broth (for the steak) and my brother's cheese fondue recipe were perfect. Lots of flavor!!! I've saved this in my cookbook and will be using it over and over!
Made this broth tonight: no fuss and delicious recipe. All guests raved about it including kids. I added a few sticks of lemongrass to the recipe and it was a good guess! Taste is very similar to that of canned fondue broth but with probably half the sodium and better taste. For the first time, I am considering using the leftover broth for soup (usually it is way too salty).
Enjoyed this tonight with broccoli, pork loin, chicken, and edamame in the pod. I used water rather than wine... didn't have any. I also left out the seafood sauce. I went heavy on the garlic, as suggested. This made for a fun Friday evening dinner with the family. My 5 year old enjoyed the novelty of cooking his own food, but only ate a bit, cause he's 5 and that's what they do, apparently. Everyone else ate heartily. Thanks for sharing!
wow!! turned our foods into something quite wonderful and savory!!! used wine instead of water and added a bit more garlic and also ommitted the seafood sauce. may try with next time. but wouldn't change a thing!! just don't use with tempura. the broth doesnt get hot enuf to make the batter crispy. thanks midge!!
Excellent! We had fondue for Christmas Eve dinner last night. I've never done fondue but DH's family does every New Years. He said it's the best he's ever had. I substituted water for wine and left out the seafood sauce. Thanks Midge Plourde!
I love this broth! Fondue is our family Christmas tradition, and this is the recipe I have used for years. Thanks for posting!
This was a nice flavorfull broth. We had a fondue supper with potatoes, meat, veggies, and crunchy bread. I think next time I'll decrease the amount of black pepper.
