Cooking time: A few seconds
All you have to do is spear a piece of meat or vegetable and immerse it in the boiling liquid for a few seconds.
Present the meat on serving platters and the sauces in small dishes.
If you wish to buy an electric fondue pot, choose one with a heat control.
When using fuel burners, always be sure to fill them when cold and wipe the edges thoroughly before lighting.
- serve with cold mayonnaise-type sauces
- cream-based sauces or sour cream
- Cut the beef into thin slices
- peel the shrimp
- clean the vegetables and cut into strips
- immerse into the very hot broth.
For the beef broth, you can simply heat up some beef consommé, use a bouillon cube dissolved in boiling water, or make a good homemade broth by simmering a large piece of shoulder (with bones) with onions and carrots for 3-4 hours; strain; season with salt and pepper; add the red wine and boil again. The broth can be made a day ahead.
