The Absolute Best Use For Beef Tallow
By AMANDA BRETZ
Beef tallow, which resembles coconut oil and has the consistency of butter, is beef fat that has been rendered and allowed to harden. You might be curious about how to use tallow in the kitchen once you've got your hands on some.
Although it has many practical uses, replacing cooking oil with beef tallow in many recipes can be a smart and delicious choice because it adds beef flavor to dishes. Because it has a high smoke point of 400 F, it's excellent for frying, searing meats, and sautéing.
Tallow works well in baking because of its resemblance to butter in consistency. Replacing tallow with oil or butter in pastries or other baking recipes can result in a flaky finished product, like when it's used in a pie crust.
