This sounds really good - but the photo is of someone getting ready to make cheese and other fondues? None the less I'm trying the recipe! :) Nikko

Nikko, take another look it is Fondue, but a beef fondue. My favourie fondue is using meat and making different sauces to dip the meats into. YUMMMM. I usually make an appke curry sauce for pork, a bordelaise for beef, and a mornay for seafood, and so on. Fun to do a mixture of meats nd sauces. You use those fun little sectioned Swiss Fondue plates. It is very popular in Switzerland.
