On the carnivore diet, a lot of your calories must come from fat, and when you learn how to make crispy beef fat snacks the easy way, you’ll always have access to delicious treats.
This sounds weird, right? If you’re new to this, you may think, “Oh, wow, eat more fat? What could possibly be difficult about that?” but you’ll soon find out that when we say “more fat” we do mean “more fat.” And that’s not that easy at all.
If you’re anything like me, you cut off the fat from your steak (unless it’s crispy). I’ve always left it on my plate to get thrown out.
And from the kitchen bin, that rim of fat does my body no good.
I found an over-the-shoulder video that shows how to turn cut-offs like that (from uncooked meat) into yummy snacks or additions to your meal.
As you can tell, there’s not a lot of work involved, and you obtain some delicious snacks you can either eat from if you’re hungry outside of meal times. Or you can serve them as a side to your steak or chicken.
Everything gets used. You get lovely crispy dice of fat, and you get tallow to use for frying meat.
If you don’t have an air fryer, you can use an oven, although I find it more messy, because the grease just drips down and go to waste. But it’s possible.
