I put it in the freezer for now, I think I will use it next time I make a gravy or roux. Thanks for all the replies!
Another use is making sausage. You can make pork free venison/beef/chicken sausage.

I'd much rather have french fries cooked in beef tallow than the crap Canola they use and tout as "heart healthy". Nothing could be further from the truth.
Exactly

We used to do the same thing with pan drippings from the Sunday evening roast, difference was we would eat it instead of the birds..

I grew up in post-WWII England when things were very tight and food was rationed. A Sunday roast beef 'n' Yorkshire dinner (the Yorkshire of course made with the fat from the roast) segued into all sorts of dishes in the following week (my mother was a fantastic cook) from soups to stews - and one of our staples was "drippings on toast". Wonderful!

We were going to have a full-on Yorkshire Pudding and roast dinner for Christmas this past year, until the whole house got some noro- or rotovirus. We didn't have ANY Christmas dinner! LOL we were all trying to recover. Let's just say it was super-duper low-pressure!

This year, though, I am bound and determined to make it. I just drool at the thought of that fabulous pudding soaked with beef juice and fat.

Oh my!

no.

We used to do beef bacon all the time. It had a great flavor and a much better mouth feel than pork bacon.

I like using tallow to season dishes.

Wow, this is a very interesting thread!

Can you buy beef tallow already rendered and ready to use for frying? I sure miss those McDonald's fries! Wouldn't mind trying it here at home.
