Deliciious!! It was perfect! Very flavorful.
I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, and have been to the Melting Pot restaurant several times. This New Year's Eve, my family and I decided to try to replicate the experience at home, so this recipe naturally caught my eye. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because of the cumin. I believe there may be a typo in the recipe? Perhaps it was supposed to be 2 teaspoons, not 2 tablespoons? At any rate, the cumin totally overpowered the other flavors. It wasn't inedible, though, and everyone enjoyed the experience.<br/><br/>On a related note, having now had the experience of buying and prepping the ingredients for a three-course fondue dinner for six, I now understand why it's so expensive to eat at the Melting Pot!
Good stuff! I agree this recipe is a little spicy, but very good and pretty close to what it's like at the Melting Pot. I usually just make half of what this calls for. It's nice to be able to try to duplicate the food experience without spending so much.
