The best oil for roast potatoes has to be beef tallow oil, especially if you are serving with roast beef. At Boil and Broth, our tallow oil is derived from animal fat (it’s the top layer of fat that forms when we’ve cooled the broth. This means it can withstand high cooking temperatures, which always makes the roast potatoes golden brown and crispy. Yummy!
