If I went to the butchers and asked to buy some beef fat on its own would it be cheap/of a decent quality(I live in uk)/a good source of calories and vitamins etc? And would they actually sell it alone? I think beef fat is what's missing frmo my... (more)

Go and ask the butcher! But, you'll have to figure out what the beef are eating. I asked about getting lamb trimmings from them, Whole Foods even, and I got the fat for $1 a pound, so not bad at all. I went for the lamb since it was grass fed, but... (more)

So my butcher just gave me a bunch of free beef fat trimmings. Can I render this stuff into tallow? If so, how? If not, what do I do with it? These are mostly the "hard" fat cut off the edges of steaks and some softer fat trimmed from roasts,... (more)

I just got 1.67 lbs of fresh grass fed suet! I plan on making my first attempt at rendering it tomorrow. If I just render the entire amount, how much would it ultimately yield? It's a pretty big block of fat so I don't want to waste any. Is... (more)

After spending about an hour researching this question, I have not been able to discover the nutrient profile for the grass-fed beef fat (only CAFO beef fat. ) However, I do know that the specific nutrients you mentioned are higher in the ghee... (more)

I have never seen beef fat for sale in my area of Spain... southwest, lots of pigs. "Beef drippings" (carne de goteo, o simplemente grasa de ternera)) literally. Neither have I seen sheep or lamb fat commercially produced and sold. I save my... (more)
