Fondue with a difference – featuring Kikkoman sauces!

In Europe we’re used to classic fondue with oil or cheese. But there’s a new version that’s becoming increasingly popular: fondue inspired by Japanese shabu-shabu. Because the ingredients are cooked in stock, this kind of fondue is much less fatty but still just as tasty. 

Kikkoman has put together three great recipes – and can also help you select the perfect sauces for your fondue.

Beef fondue

Serves 6

Ingredients

Beef fondue

  • 1 litre beef stock
  • 600 g beef fillet
  • 200 g mange tout / peas pods
  • 1 sweet potato
  • 1 jar baby corn

Cumberland sauce

  • 100 g lingonberry jam or redcurrant jelly
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard
  • zest and juice of 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp. Kikkoman Ponzu Orange
  • black pepper 

Peanut sauce

Beef stock (home-made)

  • 2 onions, unpeeled
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 kg meat for making soup
  • 1 kg beef bones
  • 2 carrots
  • 1 yellow carrot
  • 100 g celeriac
  • 6 litres water
  • 1 bay leaf
  • ¼ bunch of parsley
  • 10 black peppercorns
  • 60 ml Kikkoman Organic Soy Sauce

Method

Beef stock (home-made)

Wash the meat and bones thoroughly. Place in a large stock pot and fill with cold water. Bring to the boil. When the water starts to boil, skim off the froth. Add the remaining ingredients and cook on a medium heat for at least 3 hours. Strain and add salt to taste.

Instead of home-made stock, ready-made stock or stock cubes can be used.

Peanut sauce

Shell then roughly chop the peanuts. Toast in a frying pan without oil. Put aside. Finely chop the spring onion, ginger and garlic. Fry in oil until soft. Add the coconut milk and reduce for a few minutes. Then add the peanuts and the peanut butter. Add the lime juice and the Kikkoman Teriyaki Sauce with Toasted Sesame.

Cumberland sauce

Combine the jam with the mustard, ponzu sauce, orange juice and zest. Season to taste.

Beef fondue

Cut the fillet into cubes measuring 2 cm. Blanch the pea pods in boiling water before plunging them briefly into cold water. Peel the sweet potato and cut it into cubes measuring 2 cm. Cook for a few minutes until al dente. Heat up the beef stock in a fondue pot on the stove. Place the fondue pot on the fondue stand. Put the meat or vegetables onto skewers and cook in the stock. Serve with the sauces.

Vegetarian

For a vegetarian fondue, use vegetable stock and omit the meat.

Lemon mayonnaise

Chili sauce

Chicken stock (home-made)

Method

Chicken stock (home-made)

Wash the chickens thoroughly. Take the chickens apart and put the breast pieces aside. Place in a large stock pot and fill with cold water. Bring to the boil. When the water starts to boil, skim off the froth. Add the remaining ingredients then cook on a medium heat for at least 3 hours. Strain and add salt to taste.

Instead of home-made stock, ready-made stock or stock cubes can be used.

Lemon mayonnaise

Blend the egg yolks with a hand blender until creamy. Add the oil very gradually and continue to blend until the mixture becomes a thick, creamy mayonnaise. Finally, add the pepper, ponzu sauce and lemon juice.

Chili sauce

De-core the pepper and chop roughly. Chop the ginger and garlic. Purée the pepper, ginger and garlic with a hand blender. Bring all the ingredients to the boil, reduce the heat to 2/3 and allow to simmer for at least 15 minutes. The sauce should take on a jam-like consistency.

Chicken fondue

Cut the chicken breast into cubes measuring 2 cm. Divide the broccoli into florets and cook in boiling water for several minutes, then plunge it briefly into cold water. Heat up the chicken stock in a fondue pot on the stove. Place the fondue pot on the fondue stand. Put the vegetables, meat, pasta etc. onto skewers and cook in the stock. Serve with the sauces.

Vegetarian

For a vegetarian fondue, use vegetable stock and omit the meat. Use vegetarian ravioli (e.g. with ricotta or mushrooms).
