I think a fondue is a very romantic casual dinner or wonderful for after the theatre snack served with a robust red wine. For dinner serve with rice & a small salad. Almond Rice Pilaf is a great accompaniment (recipe posted separately ) To cook the meat you must first heat your oil - I do this by heating it to almost boiling on the stove and then transfering it to your fondue burner. Buy good quality meat I recommend only using a fillet. Have at least 3 sauces. If you want to serve 4-6 people just increase the meat to 2 lbs there will be enough sauce.These sauce recipes came from "Soup Central"
- 2 lbs fillet beef steaks, cut into 3/4 inch cubes
- enough vegetable oil, to 1/2 fill your fondue pot
Honey Mustard Sauce

Easy BBQ Sauce

Garlic Dill Sauce
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 2 teaspoons fresh garlic, minced
- 1⁄4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
- 1 teaspoon dried dill weed or 2 sprigs fresh dill

- Easy BBQ Sauce: Combine all ingredients in a pot& cook over low heat until the sugar is dissolved.

- Garlic Dill Sauce: Mix all the ingredients and chill until ready to serve.
I thought the honey mustard was good when I made it but got sweeter as it sat. The barbecue sauce was really good, I added about twice as much lemon juice and lots of hot sauce. The garlic dill sauce was in need of lots of salt, especially on meat that was unsalted. I think next time I'll salt my meat after I cut it into chunks and skip the honey mustard sauce and just use the hot mustard.
Not the usual sauces I would use for fondue but they were ok for a change.
Excellent selection of sauces for fondue & beyond. I made teh garlic dill for our fondue night & the honey mustard just to try it. I liked the dill w/our salmon & chicken. I plan halve it in the future as a little extra to go with some grilled or broiled fish. The honey mustard was just a little 'more' than the bottled stuff - def. worth the small effort involved. I plan to make it again for chicken strips.
