Recipe: Homemade Beef Tallow
- 1 pound suet, cleaned and finely chopped
- 1/4 cup water
- Start by cleaning the pasture-fed beef suet. Remove any remaining meat or membranes from the suet, leaving only the pure fat. Cut the suet into small, uniform pieces.
- Place the finely chopped suet and water in a heavy-bottomed pot or saucepan.
- Heat the pot over low to medium heat. As the suet begins to melt, it will release its fat.
- Allow the suet to simmer gently, stirring occasionally. As it melts, the fat will separate from any remaining connective tissue or impurities.
- Continue to simmer and stir for approximately 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until the suet has fully rendered, and the liquid fat is clear and golden in color.
- Carefully strain the liquid fat through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth into a clean, heat-resistant container. This will remove any remaining solids, leaving you with pure homemade beef tallow.
- Let the beef tallow cool and solidify at room temperature or in the refrigerator.
- Once solidified, store the beef tallow in an airtight container in a cool, dark place or the refrigerator. It can last for several months.
