There may be offcuts of meat remaining with the beef fat. Please cut off and use as desired.
These are the fat trimmings from the striploin, ribeye, tenderloin, or rump. Whenever we process the larger blocks of meat into smaller portions, we have fat trimmings that are leftovers. Adding just the labor and material costs. Beef fat needs to be rendered first for best use. Cook slowly over low heat until it becomes a liquid or better cook in the oven under low temperature for 90 minutes. Store the liquid fat into a glass jar and freeze or refrigerate for later use. See the instructions below. Natural saturated fats are healthy and important, tallow is a great option to use for pan-frying vegetables or pan-searing steaks.
100% pasture-raised beef from Australia, New Zealand, and the USA. Of course free of antibiotics and growth hormones.

Cooking Instructions Recipe for Beef Fat
Defrost in the fridge or place the pack in cold water. Beef fat defrosts very quickly. Cut the pieces into smaller chunks. Our beef fat is very closely trimmed, there is nothing else you need to do. You can either render the fat in a fry-pan or in the oven. The fry-pan method will consume a larger amount of gas and in some households, the gas stove turns off after a certain amount of time. We recommend the oven method.
Place content in a pan or skillet. Make sure that it is suitable for oven use.
Preheat the oven to 130 degrees Celsius (250 Fahrenheit) and place the skillet in the middle. There is no need for a lid but can you use one. Let the beef liquify for around 90 minutes.
This is how beef fat looks like after 90 minutes. Looks like tasty bacon. This could be used as cracklings though.
Use a sieve to filter out the larger chunks of fat. You will have a beautifully clear liquid of fat.
Next, you will need to store your beef fat. We highly recommend glass jars with a proper lid. They are inexpensive and last forever.
One pack of beef fat yields a whole jar of liquid gold. As long as it is warm the fat will stay liquid. Place the jar in the fridge and they will change color and texture similar to margarine. Or you can keep the jar sealed in the freezer for more than 1 year.
Translated from Japanese: The food is delicious and safe. I’m always thankful to Horizon Farms because I’d never be able to get this at my local supermarket.
Translated from Japanese: No uncomfortable feeling.
It was very delicious.
Translated from Japanese: I heard that saturated fatty acids are better for heating, so I bought it for the first time and I was surprised at how delicious it was! I eat it often because it’s low in sugar, but my body feels good after finishing eating as wel. I'm also happy that it's grass-fed.
Translated from Japanese: It's cheap.
Since it’s greasy, it’s good for stir-frying things.
This is reassuring beef tallow.
It’s a great deal with a large amount.
I bought a little in bulk.
Translated from Japanese: Very good quality beef tallow! I will continue.
