Beef Tallow Fries Recipe

Beef Tallow Fries

English-style potatoes fried in tallow 

  • Difficulty (0 = Caveman, 5 = Thomas Keller): 2
  • Serving size: 4
  • Prep/cook time: 30 mins
  • Meat temp: N/A


  • 6 russet potatoes 
  • 2 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp paprika 
  • 3 cups beef tallow 


  • In a fryer or deep skillet, get your tallow to 365°F – Yes, temp it. 
  • Slice your fries to your desire – Wedges is easiest for a beginner, but you can’t go wrong with a steak fry. 
  • Fry the potatoes for 10 min. Watch the temp or they will get too hot and burn.  
  • Remove from the oil and let rest for 5 min, then return to oil for 5 min, or 8-10 min for crispy. 
  • Since all the potatoes won’t fit at once, work in batches – While the first batch is cooling for 5 min, cook the second batch for 10 min, which makes the rest time longer (and that’s ok) 
  • Drain excess oil from the fries on a paper towel and add to a bowl. Careful, the bowl will get hot! 
  • Add paprika and salt.
  • For a bonus, get some powdered vinegar.
