What to do with lamb fat?

Answered on August 19, 2014

I've been eating a lot of ground lamb lately, and it leaves a thick layer of fat in the pan. What should I do with the fat - it's not nearly as appetizing as bacon fat, but should I just chuck it?

I try to use it sooner than I would bacon fat though because any "muttony" flavor it might have intensifies as it sits in the fridge, and I like it to be as neutral as possible when cooking stuff in it.

I just use it as a generic cooking fat for everything I would otherwise use coconut oil or butter in.

I have IBS, get really bad bloating from onions, peppers, garlic, brassica veg, etc.

Are you sensitive to nightshades?

Sounds delish - but I can't eat onions or peppers. Any other ideas..?

Just eat it! Eat it! Get yourself and egg and beat it!

Save it for eggs or veggies.

I like using lamb fat to roast potatoes in, on the rare occasions I eat potato. Toss it in with a few sliced leeks, dice the potatoes, season to taste with black pepper, rosemary and sea salt, roast on high until done. Nom and enjoy.

No, please don't chuck it! It would be very good to use to cook up some kalamata olives, peppers, and onions to eat as a side or add to a frittata.

Was going to say fry onions, mushrooms and eggs in it (delicious), but since you have trouble with those, I sometimes use it to fry extra-lean beef mince (it's often cheaper than regular here).

If you continuously end up with way more than you can use, feeding it to your dog will make for the happiest pup you've ever seen! Whenever I fry some my dog won't leave the kitchen for anything. It's the only time she ever sits still :)
