Dip Into Easy Entertaining With These Beef Recipes
Add some fun to your next evening in with friends when you set the table without forks and knives! From start to finish, a meal of dipped foods is guaranteed to add a playful element to your entertaining that guests will adore.
Start with an appetizer of assorted chopped vegetables paired with your favorite sour cream-based dip. A fondue pot of melted cheese is also a fun appetizer, and guests will love dipping raw vegetables, bread and sliced green apples into the savory cheese sauce. When it's time for the main course, treat your guests to delicious skewered meats with zesty dipping sauces, like Asian Beef Kebobs, which are marinated up to a day in advance and cook quickly on the grill:
