I was wondering how long beef dripping from a roast can be kept in the fridge?
Officially, considering food safety guidelines, I should really say that you could keep it in a sealed container in the fridge for about a week.
But unofficially, providing it has been stored in a cold part of the fridge, in a clean sealed jar, we would keep it for a month for cooking. When you use it make sure it looks and smells good – the rendered fat should look clean and feel firm and any jelly should be set. If it’s liquid or has any signs of deterioration discard it.
If you want to keep it for longer than a week it’s best to store it in small containers in the freezer but you need to do that when it’s fresh.
Thank you Lindsey, that is very helpful. This is such a good site!
