Beef Fondue Recipe
  • Prepare meat by removing the fat from a beef tenderloin or a boneless sirloin. Cut into cubes that can be easily eaten. Place meat in refrigerator and prepare the fondue pot
  • Measure out enough oil, vegetable or peanut--depending on your preference--to fill the pot half full. (If desired, pre-heat the cooking oil in a sauce pan on the stovetop before pouring into the fondue pot. Or use the gel fuel to heat the oil in the fondue pot to moderately high temperatures, from 350° F to 375° F. Check with a cooking thermometer or by dipping a piece of day-old bread into the pot. If the bread turns golden brown in 25 to 35 seconds, the oil is ready.)
  • Remove meat from refrigerator and make sure it is not too wet. If necessary, pat excess moisture with a paper towel to prevent the hot oil from spitting when the meat is placed in the pot.
  • Use long fondue forks to hold the meat and a piece of garnish, if desired, so it can be placed into the pot to cook from 1 to 3 minutes, depending on the doneness desired. (The long fork will help keep hands safely away from the hot oil.) Remove the meat from the fork and begin cooking another piece. Use a table fork to hold the meat for dipping into the dipping sauce.
  • Traditional dipping sauces include mustards, barbecue sauces, bearnaise sauce, or any of a variety of meat sauces typically suggested for fondue meat.
