12 Days Of Beef Dripping Recipes, Day 11:  Triple Cooked Chips (Serves 1)

You can make chips in a saucepan, but a domestic deep fat fryer is not very expensive and makes the whole process much safer.

Ingredients:

  • 200 g Maris Piper potatoes
  • dripping (enough to half-fill your pan when melted)

Method:

  1. Peel the potatoes and cut into chips: 1 cm thick for chunky chips; half that for skinny chips.
  2. Rinse well under cold water, then drain. Put the chips into a pan of cold salted water and bring to the boil. Turn down the heat and simmer until the chips are just soft to the point of a knife.
  3. Drain, pat dry, spread out on a flat tray and allow to cool; then put in the fridge until cold.
  4. Heat the fat to 120˚C and add the chips. Don’t overcrowd the pan. Blanch for about five minutes until cooked through but not coloured.
  5. Remove, drain, pat dry, spread out on kitchen paper on a flat tray, cool and refrigerate.
  6. When you are ready to eat, heat the fat to 160˚C and add the chips. Cook until crisp and golden, then remove, drain, season and serve immediately.

Awarded the Great Taste Golden Fork award and named Supreme Champion at this year’s prestigious awards in London, James Whelan Beef Dripping is produced in Clonmel by Pat Whelan, a fifth generation butcher, and made from the purest suet from grass fed Irish Angus and Hereford beef, and wrapped simply in white waxed paper. These magical creamy ingots transform roast vegetables, crisp potatoes into delicious roasters and make the most perfectly golden fish and chips. The product stays fresh for up to six months, simply stored in a cool dark place.

In the words of Pat Whelan, “It’s the taste of my childhood, our Beef Dripping is nutrient rich, high in omega-3 acids, clean, pure and carries great flavour, whether for frying a steak, roasting potatoes, or spread onto good bread like lardo.” Just a spoonful of this once forgotten favourite can form part of a balanced diet and impart a rich savoury note into all manner of dishes, from roast potatoes and shortcrust pastry to the effortless indulgence of dripping on toast with a pinch of salt. 

The Beef Dripping,priced €3.99, is available  online at www.jameswhelanbutchers.com and from James Whelan Butchers at Clonmel, Tipperary, Avoca Food Market, Monkstown and Avoca, Rathcoole.
