I had meat fondue last night: beef, chicken, and shrimp cooked in a simple vegetable broth at the table. When we were finished eating, the broth was thrown away. I could only help but wonder: are there any typical dishes made with the used broth?

I would use this broth to make soups. It would make a great base for a number of soups such as scotch broth, but also for using for the stock for making other soups such as lentil or whatever you fancy.

Good luck!

You could try making Vietnamese Pho, a meal which is basically Noodles, Spring Onion and Meat of some sort (perhaps what you have left over from the Fondue) and Stock.

Ohhh, Pho is much more than that. It is pure happiness in food form. Plus good traditional pho broth uses only beef stock that has been simmering for at least 6 hours. I think the broth would make a cheap knock-off and can be better use as a base for other soups. – Jay Jan 25 '12 at 18:44

You can use it like normal bouillon. For example you could put it in the water for boiling pasta or rice.
