Make sure that the meatballs are thoroughly cooked before eating them. There shouldn’t be any pink inside. Don’t forget to use dips to accompany this meat fondue.

Hot Oil Fondue requires a particular kind of wire mesh spoons or smaller versions of this stainless steel strainer, which can be found in most Asian grocery stores. If you can’t find the right meshed spoons, you can carefully use a stainless steel slotted spoon that can resist high temperatures.
