ISO: Beef tallow fries
- Jamie Eats Burgers Nov 6, 2009 05:19 AM
I'm not the biggest fan of 'french' fries. But I enjoy them if they are done well.
I also know that the fat that is used is crucial for flavour.
Anyone know where to get fries fried in beef tallow in Toronto?
I would hate to make them myself...
while not fine dining by ANY means .... and i mean ANY means ....
Master Steak on Dixie 1 block north of the 401 fries there's in beef tallow
the masterburger is actually very good too -- the best under $10 i've had
(this is a truck stop ... so dont bring first dates here)
5895 Dixie Rd, Mississauga, ON L4W1E8, CA
Please report back if you try them.
Beef tallow is sometimes used for fries in New Zealand in fish and chip places, and the chips are McCains. I find the result bordering on unpalatable and leaving me feeling queasy. But obviously somebody must like them. Perhaps one must build up a tolerance to the fat.
McDonald's fries used to be fried in beef tallow, and when they made the change to vegetable oil in 1990, they employed flavour chemistry to replicate the flavour of the beef tallow. Supposedly their current product is almost indistinguishable from the tallow incarnation, so arguably, you can enjoy "beef tallow" fries at Mickey Dees.
re: Crispier Crouton
Very arguably. I'm old enough to remember McDonald's fries a long time ago. The fries they serve today don't even vaguely resemble the ones they served way back when - and they haven't in decades.
Even more galling is that I've heard them tell people that their fries are suitable for vegetarians, when - in Canada - they apparently aren't.
