This is an amazing fondue recipe sent to us by our Facebook friend Leslie P. She found a recipe on epicurious.com and adapted it, and we’ll share her adaption with you here.
Boetje’s Beer Cheese Fondue
1 cup/240 ml pilsner-style beer or American lager
1/2 lb Gruyère cheese, shredded
1/2 lb Emmentaler cheese, shredded (Raclette and Gouda are also good options)
1 tbsp cornstarch
2 tsp Boetje’s mustard
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
Pinch of paprika
Fine sea salt, such as fleur de sel or sel gris
Bring the beer to a boil over medium-high heat in a fondue pot or a medium heavy saucepan. Reduce the heat to medium-low so the beer is gently simmering.
Toss the cheese with the cornstarch in a medium bowl. Add the cheese mixture to the beer one large handful at a time, stirring the cheese in a figure-eight pattern until completely melted before adding more. Stir in the mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and paprika, and season with salt. Serve immediately.
Leslie also added a few personal notes & tips for using this recipe:
You can add more cornstarch if cheese is too runny. I have not had this issue. I suggest avoiding low calorie or light beers, as they may have too much water.
Serve with pretzel bread, apples, crudite, or even sausages and pickled veggies.
