So, what is gras de bœuf?

Gras de bœuf, also known as beef fat, is a highly versatile and flavorful ingredient commonly used in French and European cuisine. Obtained from the adipose tissue of the cow, this rich and creamy fat has a distinct beefy taste that adds depth and richness to dishes. Gras de bœuf can be rendered and used for frying or as a cooking fat for roasted meats and vegetables, or incorporated into pastry doughs to make flaky and tender crusts. Its high smoke point also makes it ideal for deep-frying, resulting in crispy and delicious treats. Gras de bœuf is a staple ingredient in classic French dishes such as confit de canard and pommes de terre sarladaises, and its unique flavor profile is sure to elevate any dish it is used in.
