0 Fondue, it's not just for cheese...

Fondue is a fun and easy dinner. You can fondue meats and vegetables in oil or broth, instead of chunks of bread in cheese sauce. If you use broth, you can season it, add vegetables to it,add wine to it, etc. and have it as a soup after your done cooking the meat in it. This is a very versatile meal.

Cut up all meats (beef, chicken, pork or shrimp, etc.) and vegetables (mushrooms, squash, zucchini, asparagus, brussel sprouts, etc.) that you're going to cook into small pieces. Put them onto individual cooking forks and dip into the hot liquid in your fondue pot (Heat the liquid on the stove first, then put on the fondue burner to save time). You can also use sliced sausage or meatballs, or cut your meats into slices, put cut onions, garlic, spices, etc. on them and roll them up and cook them. When your meat or vegetables are done “cooking” remove them from the cooking forks (forks will be hot, so be careful) and dip them into different sauces. (Put sauces into individual small bowls for each person).

Serve with plates of sliced bread, cheeses, sliced fruits and vegetables, pickles, etc.
