*Star anise is a star-shaped dark brown pod
native to China. It is used in Asian and tropical
cuisines, and as a flavoring in baked goods in
many Western cuisines. It can be found in Asian
markets, as well as in many grocery stores and
specialty food stores.
Makes 6 to 8 servings
6 cups good quality beef stock or broth
(low-sodium) + 2 cups additional hot
broth to add as needed
3 scallions, cut in 1-inch pieces

1-2 cloves garlic, peeled and halved
4 whole peppercorns
1 tablespoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon mirin, rice wine or

3/4 pound beef tenderloin, thinly sliced

Place the beef stock, scallions, ginger, garlic,
and peppercorns in the Cuisinart
Fondue Pot.
Set temperature at Setting 6 and bring to a boil.
Reduce to Setting 3 and simmer for about 20 - 25
minutes, until broth has taken on the flavors of the
ginger and scallions.
Use skewers to dip slices of beef or pork
tenderloin and the accompanying vegetables
into the stock. May be served with small bowls
of hot steamed rice for each diner. Add additional
warm beef stock to the Fondue Pot as needed,
to keep the liquid deep enough for dipping
and cooking.
