Ingredients

Unrendered Wagyu Beef Tallow (1 pound or more)


Instructions

Rendering Wagyu Beef Tallow is easy and can be accomplished with any of the three methods below:

STOVE TOP METHOD:

  1. Allow Unrendered Wagyu Beef Tallow to thaw to room temperature (do NOT microwave).
    • Unrendered Wagyu Tallow from Plum Creek Wagyu is already coarse ground
    • If using tallow cut directly off uncooked Wagyu steaks, you will want to grind or chop it into smaller pieces to help the fat melt more evenly.
  2. Place the Tallow in a large stainless steel pot with a decent amount of head space and place the post on the pot on the burner to the LOWEST possible setting. 
    • Because Wagyu Fat has a lower melting point (less that the human body temperature!) you will want to keep your heat source as LOW as possible to prevent burning
  3. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until you have a clear/golden liquid with hardened bits on top.
  4. Remove from heat and strain through cheesecloth into a glass bowl.
    • Tallow can also be strained directly into clean, wide-mouthed jars
  5. Use a funnel to pour the strained melted fat into glass jars with lids.
  6. Allow to cool and then place in your refrigerator to store.
