How to use up leftover beef dripping

Mix melted beef dripping with red wine vinegar and grainy mustard to taste. Season, then toss through roasted veg and warm grains with plenty of fresh herbs for an indulgent warm salad.
- Proper beef sandwich
Toast sourdough bread slices, then spread on one side with beef dripping. Sprinkle over a little sea salt, then layer up slices of rare roast beef, rocket leaves, a dollop of horseradish sauce and ground black pepper to taste.
- Rich pastry
Freeze beef dripping, then coarsely grate and use to replace some of the suet in suet pastry mix (about half beef dripping and half suet should do it). Mix well and roll out as usual, then use to top hearty steak and ale pies.
