    Default Note to self: Do Not Begin Beef Stock at 4PM

    Six hours later I"m cooling two gallons, and will reduce the stock
    later.

    Meanwhile, I degreased about a pint of grease from the stock.

    If this were chicken stock, I'd use the grease to saute an onion and
    store it away for later.

    What can I do with the beef grease? - Mike

    If you were doing Roast Beef in near future it would be great for doing
    the Yorkshire puddings !

    It makes really good soap. (The problem is finding lye. It must be
    used in processing illegal drugs or something, cuz it's still legal
    but has become impossible to find)

    If you have a musket, you can mix beef grease with beeswax to make
    bullet lube.

    It should also be good for making pie crust; basically anything that
    calls for Crisco.

    French Fries! Isn't that what McDonald's used to use to fry in originally?
    I've never personally done it but I recall those good fries of years
    gone by.... <sigh>

    I rmember reading that the original fry oil
    was half beef fat and half lard. I don't know
    what special qualities that has over beef fat or
    lard alone.

    Serves you right for not letting it simmer overnight the *right* way.

    Saute onions and potatoes for beef or corned beef hash

    My roasting potatoes is coat them in olive oil, salt and rosemary and
    in the oven until golden.
    Substitute the beef grease for olive oil and anything else? - Mike

    Beef grease is one thing I never bother keeping. It goes into the trash.

    It's really good for jamming up your drainpipe. Don't ask...

    I only have roast beef occasionally. I don't think it is enough to make
    it a serious problem.

    It's not too hard to find lye, but it's a bit expensive unless you're
    buying large amounts.

    Same thing. Fry potatoes, onion rings. Beef tallow is tasty.
