My daughter requested French onion soup and since I just smoked a brisket I thought I would use the beef tallow to carmalize the onions.
I saved some of the brisket drippings that I plan to add in after everything is completed. I’ll cook these down for a hour or better and then add the rest of the ingredients.
I hope this works out like I think it will - right now my kitchen smells amazing!

Beef tallow, along with pork fat (Lard) and chicken fat (Schmaltz) are ALL amazing... it used to be used a lot and has become almost forgotten... I'm happy to see some people here bringing it back to use!

The reason a lot of older people liked McDonald's fries was because they were fried in beef tallow... then the health nuts put an end to that.
 
I added garlic, red and black pepper and flour to thicken it up. 64 ounces of beef broth along with the drippings from the brisket. The flavor is outstanding - it has a nice Smokey flavor.
i had to forego the bread and cheese but I’ll be making this again!

Soup looks good. My crew are big fans. You're giving me a taste for French Onion Soup now!

A truly sad day for Baby Boomer's! Additionally, I hope the Idiot that came up with, " BAKED Apple Pies, " got a Boot in the Ass! The Fried Apple Pies were delicious...JJ
