“Arteries? Where we’re going we don’t need arteries.”


Does anyone remember who, for years, had the best frys, and why?
McDonalds. Because they were fried in tallow. Beef fat.

Check out THE BIG FAT SURPRISE: Why Butter, Meat & Cheese Belong in a Healthy Diet by Nina Teicholz for rational information about animal fats in out diet. It’s a long and not very entertaining book, but I’m betting you learn a lot.


Damn, I can almost taste the cholesterol from here!

Haven’t watched it yet, but will. In the meantime, I’d like to speculate that they never touch on the irrelevance of Wagyu fat versus any other tallow. I mean, what makes Wagyu special is the fat within the muscle tissues - that beautiful marbling. Once the fat is out of the muscle, it’s just like any other beef fat.



According to the almost-certainly-not-a-vested-interest-website

Wagyu beef is extremely rich in monounsaturated fatty acids and contains all of the essential amino acids, including omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids. Essential fatty acids such as these are believed to lower risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s and other conditions. The richly marbled beef also contains more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA), which is believed to have health benefits such as lowered risk of disease and diabetes.

Sounds like a miracle food!


it is an insult to brisket

So Guga starts deep-frying in the oil at 330 F + and then moves to 450 F + but with only one workpiece and not mercilessly trimmed.

Where are the subsequent 20 pieces? Everything’s up to temp… Only veg. from then on?

Yeah, I don’t get the same results looking for dankest chickpeas.

I hope you’re happy. I gained a good 5kg just watching that video.


The best fish and chip shops here in Britain still use beef fat. Unbelievable flavour.


Unfortunately, in the US, we had Dr Ansel Keys:

so we lost frying in animal fats

I see your basement tapes and raise you the story af Dr Ansel Keys:
