"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Place rendered suet in skillet and heat low to simmer. Put beef in skillet and let simmer until meat is partially cooked (about 30 minutes) stirring frequently. Mix all dry ingredients, and add water and vinegar and stir until mixture is smooth (like a batter). pour the mixture into skillet with meat and stir constantly for 5-10 minutes or until it comes back to boil.
