What Type Of Meat Is Used For Fondue Parties
Are you planning to host a fondue party this weekend? But are you confused what type of meat to use for fondue parties? Not to worry, the solution is right here. Many of us associate fondue with fruit and chocolate but actually fondue, in true sense, refers to dipping meat or seafood into different sauces or cheeses. Fondue is all about the prep work. The key to meat fondue recipes is the oil. Peanut oil is the best oil you can use in your fondue pot for both flavor and safety.
Let's see what type of meat is actually good for hosting fondue parties.
Pork: Cut the meat into 3/4 inch cubes and allow them to cook in 350degrees oil for around 50-60seconds. For removing the extra fat from the meat, you can trim the fat from the pork tenderloin but try to leave a very thin layer of fat on the meat for additional flavor. Eat the cooked pork either plain or with some sauces like sweet and sour sauce.
Chicken: Chicken goes well with broth and oil fondue. For the oil fondue, you can cut the chicken breast into small cubes. Immerse these chicken cubes in 350degrees oil for a minute to ensure it cooks properly. Once the chicken is cooked, you can dip in various sauces. On the other hand, for broth fondue, you can make the small cubes of the chicken and dip them in 212 degrees broth. Cook for 5 minutes and eat either plain or with the broth in which it was cooked.
Beef: Like chicken, beef also goes well with broth and oil based fondues. For the broth fondue, you can cut the beef steak into thick strips and cook these strips in 212degrees broth for around 1 minute. For oil fondue, you can make the cubes of the steak and cook each cube in 350degrees oil for a minute. Eat these meat either plain or dip them in steak sauces.
Seafood: Both oil and broth can be used for seafood. For broth fondue, you can cut the fish fillet into thick size strips and dip these strips in 212degrees broth for two minutes. For oil fondue, cut the fillets into cubes and dip them in 350degrees oil for a minute.
Tips: For oil fondue, cooking oil might cover up the flavors of the fish. For more fondue meat recipes, you can check our recipe section.
