I wonder if any of you have ever tried to cook your steak in beef fat? In theory it seems like it would make the taste of beef stronger, and that would be a good thing. I only tried it once, and I didn't like the result, which probably explains why I've never seen or heard of anyone else doing it? I cut off a bit of extra fat from around a large rib eye steak, placed it in a cold pan on low heat until rendered. Then made sure the fat was real hot and seared the steak in it. The result was a taste that was almost too strong, and not exactly like a stronger beefier steak... more like an added bad taste to the steak.
