This was wonderful! The beer smelled awful when first beginning to heat it but once the cheese was added it became super fragrant. We had to stir it, continuously, for almost 10 more minutes than we were supposed to because the cheese was not thickening like we wanted it. Served with cauliflower and french bread.
this may have been a case of too many cooks causing trouble, but this recipe really didn't work for us. We tried it with cheddar/jack cheese, and that may have been the issue, but the cheese never melted all the way. It ended up really gloppy, and no combination of more cheese, more beer, more heat, less heat, more stirring...ad nauseum would fix it. Never had this trouble before! It still tasted ok, but gloppy is not the texture we were going for. however, I'm sure this was a case of 'user error' rather than fault of the recipe. Just wish I could figure out where we went wrong.
I boiled a can of bud select, let it simmer till the foam was going away, then switched heat to low and added a bunch of shredded cheddar and gruyere. Man gruyere is expensive, but the processed gruyere doesn't work, you have to get the real deal. I added the 2T flour, a little salt, pepper, garlic powder, and tiny bit of worcestershire. I did this kinda ghetto because I dont have a fondue pot, I just transferred the fondue to a slow cooker set to warm mode :) It worked:) Served with chopped breads and sausage.
First time making fondue and this was an easy recipe. Make sure to let the beer simmer a little until the foam is almost gone and stirred the whole time while slowly adding the cheese. We used this to dip steak and bread, it was great. Now I will try more ambitious recipes in the futre but for a first timer was perfect no issues.
Delicious! And no problems at all :)
Tweaked the recipe a bit due to limited options in the fridge. Used a can of colors light with medium cheddar and a Mexican cheese blend. It didn't seem to be as think and cheesy as I wanted so i added a little bit of cornstarch and a lot more cheese. Not only did my husband and I eat all of it with our dinner but I swear I've been craving it randomly since. Oh, and one more thing, I made mine in a medium sauce pan because I don't have a fondue pot and it worked just fine. Can't wait to make it again!
I just added minced garlic to the pot, but otherwise made this as instructed. It was a hit with the crowd of visitors! We will make this again and again. Thanks for a great and easy recipe!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.
Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
