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.
