Steak on Pitchforks Cooked in a Cauldron of Fat on Jamie's American Road Trip [video]
Here's something we've never even heard of: In the latest episode of Jamie's American Roadtrip, Jamie Oliver was in Wyoming and Montana to play cowboy, and he comes across what's known as Pitchfork Fondue or Pitchfork Steak: steaks skewered on pitchforks dipped into boiling fat (usually suet) in a large kettle over an open flame. Apparently it's an old-school cowboy cooking technique that dates back to the 1800's that's still practiced all over the West.
"This is like some serious medieval thing going on," says Oliver, "In all the years I've been cooking, I've never seen anything like this in my life... God bless America."
