Fat!

What do you think of fat? Do you like to eat it? Does it depend on the animal and the way it is cooked?

For myself, I love beef fat if its a good cut and there is a nice char.

Butter is my favorite fat by far. I'll take butter over bacon any day.

Im the exact opposite! Not that I don't like using butter. Often I use it when frying eggs and some other things. And then, of course, it has its usual essential purposes in lots of other foods...

Honestly, I feel that most meat is best served having been cooked with the fat on and removed afterward, and knowing that I wouldn't enjoy the meat without it having been prepared that way, I just avoid most meats altogether.

Many peoples are worried about fat as they would like to reduce the fat at any coast. In my point of view they should have some hcg diet and workout daily to reduce the fat from their body. As fat is the very bad and is the reason of the many other disease also. So, control it as soon as possible.

Bacon is probably my preferred way to intake fat.

And to the post above - fat is not very bad. Speaking as one who has had to work outdoors in a Candian winter, fat can be very healthy, and very useful to have on your body.

Not to mention that there is no evidence that a high-fat diet leads to heart disease. Yes, an unhealthy lifestyle will lead to all kinds of problems, but eating fat in and of itself is not that bad for you.

I don't even want a steak unless it has a nice strip of fat along the edge.

Grilled meat is ALWAYS better when there is some fat up there.

And yes...I eat it.

Until about a year or two ago, I always trimmed my steak like a maniac. I was like ICHT - I wanted the fat on while cooking, and off while eating.

I cooked a ribeye last year and ate all the fat, just to see what the fuss is about.

It's where the flavor hides. It's the most umamiest thing you'll ever eat. I love it. Love it.

Fat on a barbecue cut is absolutely essential. I know a lot of people trim the fat on a brisket or a pork shoulder, but I leave it on. I trim it before pulling/cutting the finished product, but it should be there while smoking the meat.

Butter is an excellent fat. So is bacon. But nothing touches the fat on a ribeye.

I cook with butter and olive oil.

I love bacon.

I cut fat off of meat. The texture is too weird for me.

If it's cooked right, it's great. If it's cooked wrong, I can't eat it.

Best idea ever:

Bacon wrapped in bacon slathered in butter cooked in lard

the key with eating cooked fat is to a) cook it correctly, and b) make sure that it's not excessively thick. Aside from that if you're eating it in the same bite with the meat it will add tons of flavor and goodness but not give a strange textural problem like eating straight fat.

For cooking I like to use bacon fat & olive oil, though I've been looking at getting some avacado oil because of the incredibly high smoke point (520F/271C)
