Beef and Beer Fondue

Beef and Beer Fondue

I got this recipe from my mother. We always have it at parties. The fondue is a thick, rich, tomato-type fondue. There is no cheese in it and it doesn't need it. The meatballs soak up some of the sauce to make it super yummy! It's always a hit for us, so I thought I'd share.

    Form ground beef into meatballs. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat and cook meatballs, turning as needed, until browned, about 7 minutes.
