Irish Aged Cheddar Cheese Fondue with Guinness


Just in time for St. Patrick’s Day, make sure to grab yourself an extra Guinness because this is the perfect fondue recipe from The Melting Pot to try at home:

1 cup Guinness Extra Stout
4 tsp dry mustard powder
1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
2 tsp Tabasco sauce
2 TBL chives, chopped
11 oz (2 1/2 – 3 cups) cheddar cheese
3 TBL all-purpose flour

Cheese should be shredded and tossed with flour to aid in thickening and improve the viscosity of the fondue. The cheese should be the consistency of warm honey when complete. Monitor your cheese as it is being added and note that not all cheese may be needed and in some cases a bit more may be needed to get it to the perfect consistency.

Turn heat source to HIGH, place pot with 1” water on burner. Place liner into pot. When steam is visible, reduce heat to MED. Add beer to liner. While stirring with a fork; add Worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, and Tabasco. Stir for approximately 30 seconds. Add half of the cheese and stir until fully incorporated into liquid. Then add pinches of the cheese in very small increments until the rest of the cheese is used and stir using a circular whipping motion until smooth. Remove fork and garnish with chopped chives.
