This was always a very special treat when I was a kid! My mom and dad did this every now and then when they'd have a holiday party or card party. And a few times we'd do it just the family! It was always a blast! Definately going to have to ask Santa for a fondue pot as my set disapeared many years ago. Sounds like a fun plan for New Year's Eve! (photo from bing images)

How to Make Beef Tenderloin Fondue

Step-by-Step

  1. Pour oil into fondue cooker to depth of about 1 1/2-2 inches or per manufacturers suggestions for your set. Place over direct heat on stove at heat oil to 425 degrees (or just below smoking point.) Then carefully take to table or serving area and place over heating unit. Have beef cubes at room temperature in serving bowl. Set out small bowls of butters and sauces. Spear meat cubes (4 at a time, one per person) with fondue forks and cook in oil til desired doneness. Dip in butters and sauces of choice, (see below). Nice served with shrimp cocktail, broiled bacon-wrapped smoked oysters, toasty warm french bread, fruit and cheese platter, vegetable dips, beers and wines, and of course dessert! If you have a second fondue pot, try a chocolate fondue! If not, my French Silk Chocolate Pie is always appreciated!
  2. Garlic Parsleyed Butter:
    Whip together 1 stick softened butter with 1 Tbl. fresh chopped parsley and 1 minced garlic clove. Makes a 1/2 cup.
  3. Anchovy Butter:
    Drain one 2-ounce can anchovies; place into mixer with 1 stick soft butter, 2 Tbl. olive oil, 1/2 tsp. paprika and an 1/8 tsp. pepper. Mix til smooth. Makes 1 cup.
  4. Sour Cream Horseradish Sauce:
    Combine 1 cup sour cream, 3 Tbl. drained prepared horseradish, 1/4 tsp. salt and a dash of paprika. Chill. Makes 1 1/4 cups.
