I've had this at Melting Pot, but this version is SO peppery that it is hardly palpable. There was so much spice going on that ruined our dinner.
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.
Great recipe! It was a lot spicier than I remember than at the Melting Pot..... If you are not wanting that much spice, I would tone it down when you make it!
This is our favorite broth from the melting pot. It tasted just like it! Thanks so much!
This smelled so good and even my picky 9 year old loved fondue with this broth.
