1. Put the beef stock/broth, ginger, peppercorns, garlic, scallions, soy sauce and mirin in the fondue pot. Set to Setting 6 to bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to Setting 3.5 to bring to a simmer. Allow to simmer for about 25 to30 minutes.

2. To serve, skewer pieces of beef or pork onto forks and cook until firm and cooked through in the simmering broth, about 3 to 5 minutes. Skewer vegetables and tofu and cook to taste. The vegetables and broth pair very well with a bowl of rice, or with the suggested dipping sauces below. If liquid cooks off too much, add additional stock/broth and allow to simmer for a few minutes before cooking foods.
