So, what is beef fat?

Beef fat, also known as beef tallow, is a rich and versatile ingredient derived from the fatty tissues of cattle. This creamy white substance is solid at room temperature and has a melting point of around 100Β°F. With its high smoke point and rich flavor, beef fat is commonly used in cooking and baking, particularly in traditional dishes like Yorkshire pudding and deep-fried foods. It's also a popular ingredient in soap and candle making due to its ability to produce a hard, long-lasting bar or wax. Despite its bad reputation for being unhealthy, studies have shown that beef fat can be part of a healthy diet when consumed in moderation.
