Love stuff in dripping, is it shop stuff or the real thing ? if it is might spit a bit in the pan... making my tummbly rumbbly , reminds of when my dm used to make home made steamed steak and kidney pudding, nom nom

It'll be shop stuff.

I didn't realise there was an alternative so I'm falling at the first hurdle!.

I can cope with spitty. I'll out loads of tea towels down.

The shop stuff should be ok because it's had all the meat juices and bits removed, beef dripping from your roasting joint you cook for a sunday roast will spit like mad , tried it once, big fat chunky home made chips...
Good luck anyway

Use Britannia beef dripping...makes lovely chips

Don't mean to sound like a wet blanket but high fat high carb combinations are a metabolic timebomb.

Deep fry in beef fat yes but do something low carb like courgette fries or chicken with parmesan crust.

If somebody wants to deep fry food in beef fat I don't think the carbs are a worry for them Grin

Fluffycloudland77 · 02/08/2017 20:31

Its true I'm not worried about carbs, or fats. Just taste.

How does one store the fat when it's been used though? Scrape it out into Tupperware & refrigerate?

Ah see cosmicpineapple the fat isn't the problem ....

If you pour it while melted into a bowl of cold water, the bits will sink down in to the water and the 'filtered' fat go to the top. Remove when set and refrigerate in a tupperware type thing
