Traditional Meat Fondue

Traditional meat fondue is a beloved Swiss culinary tradition that brings together friends and family around a communal pot of hot oil or broth for cooking bite-sized pieces of meat.

Traditionally, the dish involves preparing beef; however, variations might include chicken, pork, or even game meats. The chef slices the meat into small portions and skewers them onto long forks. Then, they immerse the forks in hot liquid for diners to cook the meat to their preferred level of doneness. After cooking, enjoy the tender meat with a variety of flavorful dipping sauces, such as tangy mustard, creamy horseradish, or savory herb-infused options, enhancing the dining experience.



Sometime after World War II, Swiss cooks began cooking meat in hot oil as an alternative to their beloved cheese fondue, Traditional Meat Fondue — a kind of French-fried meat supper. The French-speaking Swiss descendants from the Burgundians named it fondue Bourguignon. Today, broth has become a popular, and healthier, substitution for hot oil.
