So, what is tyúkzsír?

Tyúkzsír is a Hungarian term for rendered chicken fat that adds intense flavor to various dishes. This creamy and rich ingredient is created by cooking down chicken skin until the fat separates, resulting in a beautiful golden liquid that's perfect for frying or sautéing. Tyúkzsír is an essential component of traditional Hungarian cuisine, often used as a healthier alternative to lard. It has a high smoke point, making it ideal for high-temperature cooking, such as roasting potatoes, seasoning stews, or enriching soups. Its unique taste and versatility make it a must-have ingredient in any kitchen.
