Broth Fondue Dinner
For your next broth fondue dinner, why not have a side salad and some brown rice as side dishes. You can also stick to healthy fondue dips for your guests to limit the calories, salt and fat content of your meal.
Make sure to have at least three dips to dunk your cooked meat into.
Types of Broth
You should match your broth to the type of meat or veggie that you will dip into it. Good broth recipes for fondue are listed on the left according to their meat, seafood or veggie category.
Broth Fondue Equipment
You must use a copper, stainless steel or cast iron fondue pot for broth based fondue. The other types of fondue pots are not designed to be used at high temperatures and could present a safety hazard and crack under the high heat.
DO NOT use ceramic or stoneware pots. The traditional pots use a burner of some sort like the Trudeau 15-Piece Meat Fondue Set and some newer pots can be electrical such as the pot shown above. More and more people choose electric fondue pots for their versatility and because you don't have to buy fondue fuel.
How to Prepare Broth Fondue
Broth fondue is normally served with thin slices of meat: beef, pork, lamb or chicken. You can also have small pieces of seafood or vegetables ready to dip.
You should have 225 g (1/2 lb) of sliced meat per guest.
Always keep your meat refrigerated until you are ready to eat.
If you are serving different types of meat, keep them separated to prevent contamination or salmonella.
You should prepare the broth ahead of time using one of the broth fondue recipes listed on the left and heat it up on the stove.
Once the broth is boiling, carefully transfer it into the fondue pot and keep extra broth nearby. The broth evaporates and you may need to refill your fondue pot.
The fondue pot should be centrally located and easily accessible by all guests. Avoid moving the pot while it is filled with hot broth. Simply wrap a piece of meat around the fondue fork and you are ready to dip it in the hot broth.
Make sure to let the meat and veggies cool off before eating them. You should also enjoy the added flavors of dips to go with these broth fondue recipes.
