Meat Fondue

Meat fondue

Ingredients: 2 pounds beef tenderloin; 1 cup cooking oil; sweet pepper to garnish

Method: Prepare the meat by removing the fat from the tenderloin. Cut into cubes that can be easily eaten. Place the meat in the refrigerator and prepare the fondue pot. Pour oil into the pot. Remove the 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 for 1 to 3 minutes. Dip into mustard or barbecue sauce.
