When I was a kid in the 1970's, Mom made fondue a lot. She served this meaty version every New Year's Day. Now I carry on that fun tradition with my own family.


  • 1 cup soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup cider vinegar
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 pound each pork and beef tenderloin, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2 to 3 cups vegetable oil


  1. In a bowl, combine the first six ingredients. Pour into two large resealable plastic bags; add pork to one bag and beef to the other. Seal bags and turn to coat; refrigerate for 2 hours, turning occasionally. Drain and discard marinade. Pat meat dry with paper towels. Heat oil in a fondue pot to 375°. Use fondue forks to cook meat in oil until pork juices run clear and beef reaches desired doneness.
