Beef Suet

At Shaded Grove Farm Market, we offer our grass-fed beef suet for sale so you can make your own beef tallow.

Wait a minute! Not so fast. Let's get one thing straight first.

What Is Beef Suet?

Let's talk about what it is and where it comes from and then we'll move on to what you can do with suet.

Beef Suet is the fat located around the kidneys of beef animals. Prized for its high melting point, it makes an excellent addition to any baking project you are undertaking. Pastries made with beef suet (or rather, rendered suet which is tallow) result in beautiful, flaky consistencies and mouthwatering taste.

This begs a question.

How To Make Beef Tallow?

It isn't that difficult even though the first time you try making your own beef tallow it might seem a bit overwhelming.

  • Start with purchasing some grass-fed beef suet from a trusted source.
  • Take suet out of the freezer and let it thaw just enough to let you cut and chop it into smaller pieces. This will help it cook down quicker.
  • Place beef suet in a crock pot and turn it on low. You will need plenty of time for this so make sure you have an uninterrupted day ahead of you.
  • Let the suet simmer on low for approximately 4 hours stirring every 15-30 minutes. You want the suet to simmer slowly as burnt fat will discolor the tallow and give it a bad flavor.
  • Once the fat pieces are golden brown, turn off the crock pot and get your jars ready.
  • You will need a funnel, glass canning jars, cheesecloth, and a strainer.
  • Pour the rendered tallow through the cheesecloth and strainer into your funnel and into the jar.
  • Presto! You made your first batch of rendered beef tallow.

Beef tallow fries are unlike no other. 

There are many uses for tallow including making your own beef tallow candles, beef tallow face cream, and more. 

While this wouldn't be high on my priority list, you can make your own bird food using tallow and attract beautiful birds to your own homemade, healthy bird food.
