Scrumptious Fondue Dinner!

In my post yesterday, I told you all how to make a cheesy dipping sauce made by the Melting Pot.  I wanted to continue today with what you could serve for your main course.  I found this recipe at Tastebook.

I made the Melting Pot's Court Bullion Broth which added quite a bit of flavor to our meats that we cooked!

Chicken and Shrimp
The hubby loves shrimp, so I had to get him 1/4 lb. of it and he also loves rib eye which isn't pictured in this photo, but I had it on another plate!  We both thought that the shrimp and chicken were the best for the main entree part of the meal.
Here's the rib eye!

When you are cooking your meat in the fondue pot, there is one important step that you must remember otherwise you could just get sick!  Use one fondue fork for the raw meat and one fork for the cooked, especially if your cooking chicken.  Don't mix those otherwise you could be hurting later...yikes!

I picked out: rib eye, chicken, and shrimp for our meat, but you could try pork, lobster, crab, and just about anything seafood.  Whatever is to your liking:)  Tip:  When you get your meat from the meat counter, just ask them to slice up your meat into bite sized pieces.  That's what I did and it saved some time for me not having to do that!

Next, you will need to gather these ingredients:

- 5 1/2 c of warm water
- 3 Tbsp of finely chopped green onion
- 1 Tbsp chopped carrots
- 2 Tbsp kosher salt
- 1 Tbsp chopped celery
- 1 Tbsp ground pepper
- 2 Tsp of garlic powder

Grab a medium sized bowl and combine all of the listed ingredients.  Then turn the fondue pot onto medium high and carefully pour the ingredients into the pot.  Bring the broth to a rapid simmer.  Take your fondue fork and put your meat of you choice on it and cook it in the fondue pot.  I think we left the chicken and shrimp in for 2-3 minutes and the rib eye is to your liking.  It would also depend on how big your pieces are.  We always double checked the meat to see if it was fully cooked!
Just starting to simmer
I made a dipping sauce for our meats, it was called Gorgonzola Port Dipping Sauce.  This is everything that you will need in order to make it:

- 1/2 c of mayonnaise 
- 1/2 c of sour cream
- 2 oz of Gorgonzola cheese
- 1/8 tsp of kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp. of black pepper
- 1 tsp of chopped garlic
- 1/4 oz port wine
- 1/2 oz of milk

Mix all of the ingredients except the Gorgonzola cheese together in a mixing bowl.  Then once you have whisked all of those ingredients add your Gorgonzola cheese and mix together.  Cover the sauce and refrigerate for an hour or so.

As you can tell, it made ALOT of dipping sauce!  So if you wanted to make half as much or even only 1/3 of it that would probably be plenty, unless you are planning on serving quite a few people!  It really was a tasty!!!

I hope you will have just as much fun preparing and enjoying this meal as I did!  Thanks for stopping:)

Until next time!
