There may not be a better cooking medium anywhere than duck fat. It adds a ton of flavor to potatoes, meat, fresh vegetables, anything you cook in it. This elk steak seared in duck fat with fresh rosemary only takes a few minutes and will rival anything you can get in the finest steak houses.

The secret to a good sear is really hot cast iron. Open the windows and turn on the fan, it will get smoky.
