Jean’s Notes:

Remind guests that cooking forks are not for eating. They get hot.

I use peanut oil.

Heat oil on the stove before bringing to table.

Round steak (one-inch cubes) is a good meat to use.


  • Ingredients: Meat
  • 1/3 to 1/2 lb meat per person, cut in one-inch cubes

  • Cube the meat.
  • Prepare sauces, using any combination of base (mayonnaise or catsup) and other ingredients.
  • Have several dipping sauces ready.
  • Heat the oil or butter.
  • Allow each guest to cook only one or two pieces of meat at one time, to keep the cooking heat constant.
  • Don’t try to have more than five or six people using one heat source.
  • Have on table dipping sauces and garnishes or sides (e.g., pickles, olives, potato sticks).
