Beef fat?

Does anyone use renderd beef fat for cooking. Im going to end up with lots of it from trimming a loin roast, not sure if it's worth my time rendering fat.
Last time i chopped it up for the dog, she really liked it.

I've done that and it's delicious. When beef fat is rendered, it is now tallow. That's what McDonald's used to use to fry their french fries and why they were so dang delectable!

I don't use tallow now but I would like to. I don't think it is too hard to render, you could use the crockpot method. I am considering purchasing a large amount of grass-fed beef fat and/or some pre-rendered tallow very soon.

Go ahead and render it -- it'll keep FOREVER in the refrigerator and it's no work at all if you do it in the crockpot.

I have a container in my fridge that I strain beef fat into, from meatballs and burgers. I have another for chicken fat, which is much softer. The pork dripping container is on the kitchen counter and is my main cooking fat.

I'm hoping to experiment with making pemmican with my beef fat. If you strain it well (and I boil it with water and then separate the fat to clean it of herbs and spices from cooking) it should keep indefinitely.
