Pan sauce, commonly known as fond, is a thin sauce created from the drippings from your meat. Steak normally leaves behind a rich, brown, crisp fond, which is ideal for producing a pan sauce to drizzle over your steak once it’s ready to serve.
What’s the best way to create beef dripping?
Only a muslin cloth (cheesecloth), a food mixer, and a container to hold the finished product are required.
- Cook for 5 hours, or until there are no solids remaining and only liquid in the slow cooker.
- Pour or spoon the fat into a container, such as a bowl, through the muslin fabric.
Tallow can be stored in jars or chopped into chunks for simpler use in cooking.
What else could I use in place of beef drippings?
In most recipes that call for lard, you’ll want to use unsalted butter as a substitute unless the recipe specifies otherwise. Other options are also available. You can use shortening or oils like coconut, vegetable, or olive if you like.
What’s the best way to make old-fashioned beef dripping?
- Place the fat chunks in a frying pan and cook them slowly. The fat will start to dissolve into the pan. This is referred to as rendering. When frying, remember to use a splatter guard to keep the fat from splattering all over you and your stovetop.
- Pour the hot fat into the container that you’ll be storing it in. This can be a bowl or a jar, but not a plastic container because the heated fat will melt it. It’s ideal to use a Pyrex glass jar. Continue to cook slowly while draining the fat. If you’re using a gas stove, don’t allow the fat drip into the flame because it will cause a flare-up!
- You’ll be left with some crisp fat once the fat has cooked out as much as possible. Chop them up into little pieces and toss them in with the rest of the ingredients. This will give your drippings more taste and crispness. This is optional; if you prefer a smoother combination, leave it out.
- Allow the drippings to cool before covering with plastic wrap. This can be stored in the refrigerator once it has cooled.

The fundamental distinction between lard and dripping is the source of fat; lard is mostly made from pig fat, whereas dripping is made from cow fat. These two fats were once widely employed, but due to their high saturated fat and cholesterol levels, they are no longer widely used in modern cooking.
