tallow?

Post by agroot » Sun May 08, 2022 8:25 pm

figured why my home-cooked Japanese curry sucks - there is no tallow! Not beef stock or lard, they are cheesy - it has to be tallow or very fat beef.

But where is tallow? A quick search shows nothing except maybe dog food (since when do dogs eat better than humans?!)


The closest suppliers are from Germany but the shelf life of tallow isn't really long and I want a more reliable source (to replace all the tasteless oils in the end). Have anyone spotted them here? Or know any good substitute?

There's a beef fat product (I've no idea if rendered or not), but doesn't seem to be available in any K-chain stores https://www.k-ruoka.fi/kauppa/tuote/ron ... 0943700008 Maybe you can ask your local store owner to get you some.

(I searched "naudan rasva" which that actually is)

Thanks I'll ask them :D

EDIT: It doesn't seem to exist at source anymore: https://www.kespro.com/haku/tuotteet?ka ... 4%20Naudan (that's where they told me to order off-shelf products to a supermarket)

You can request your k-market to order it ( it is called korttelitoive).
Contact the manufacturer: https://tuotteet.ronka.fi/ronka-naudan- ... kaste-8437
It seems some people who are following keto- diet use it.
You could try the meat shops at kauppahalli near marketplaces (Hakaniemi or kauppatori). Or other meat shops?
Join a REKO group and ask the meat supplier for it.
