Beef fat

Now that I grind my own meat, I have lots of fat leftover, I cook the fat, let it cool, put it in flat container for freezing for the birds as suet.

I like to take the extra beef fat, freeze it in 1 lb packages (vac'ed is best) and use it in lean hamburg or sausage. Occasionally you will get a hunk of meat to grind (sirloin tip, for example) that just doesn't have enough fat for my tastes.

I use it for venison grind mostly...sometimes as axle grease for the chuck wagon!

I don't know why I didn't think of that . I will save some for that purpose.

I cook mine up and give it to my outside kitties. It's good for them, especially in the wintertime when they need extra calories to keep warm.
