After straining ground beef, what is yellow-brown fluid/jelly under tallow?

SnowMonkey | Mar 27, 201707:28 PM

I decided to save the tallow when I browned a large amount of ground beef. I strained the ground beef, then strained the resulting fluid with a finer screen to remove all solids.
I poured the resulting liquid in a glass jar & put it in the fridge.

In the jar, the liquid separated into a yellow-brown fluid/jelly in the bottom & a white solid on top, which I know is tallow. What do you call the yellow-brown fluid/jelly? Is it just beef "juice"? (I'm looking for the name of it so I can search online for how I can use this "stuff").

I know tallow can be stored for long periods of time. How long can this yellow-brown fluid/jelly be stored?

Also, in addition to the name, please pass on any suggestions as to what to use this yellow-brown fluid/jelly for.
