Nicole Posted January 11, 2013 Share Posted January 11, 2013 I bought beef drippings, and just started seasoning my pans with them, when I realized: wait a minute! What is the difference between lard and beef drippings? And can I have it? From a google search it sounds like drippings are what you get after it's been cooked, but that made me suspicious of the cooking process used to make the drippings... I bought it in a tub... I didn't gather the drippings myself; so how do I know whether vegetable oils or anything else was used in the cooking process? I do know that it is made in New Zealand (where I live) and that means that it will be drippings from grass fed cows because that is pretty much the meat we grow here by default. Does anyone know anything about this and whether it's safe to eat the drippings? Or to season my pans with it? I would hate to find out that it was kind of a trick and not actually a good fat. Also, it says on the container that it is cold rendered...? The ingredients say 100% beef drippings. Cheers. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
