Uses for Beef Fat?

I just hand-trimmed 25 pounds of ball tip sirloin....
Now I have 4 pounds of beef fat.

Anyone know of a good use for it?

Candles. LOL No, you can render it down by simmering in a pan then use the liquid fat for Yorkshire puddings. You can portion the liquid out into 3 or 4 Tbs blobs and freeze then use for gravies.

You can use it to make the most delicious pasty dough on the planet.


MMMM I can feel my heart laboring even as I type!!!

Thanks

Love the gravy idea.

What sort of pastries do you make with beef fat?

Got dogs?
Melt some and mix it into their food in small amounts. They might get spoiled though!

Not pastries, pasties. Pasties are like hand held meat pies. The dough is like a cross between biscuit and pie dough.

Uh - actually it is savory pastry dough, pasties are one of the things you can make with it. You can also use it to make the "pie crust" for beef pot pies, or English suet puddings which are boiled or steamed.

I went to school with Savory Pastry Dough, she was a bit flakey.

You can use it to make suet cakes for birds. They will really appreciate it in cold weather.
