It is my goal to try something different as often as I can. Now that doesn’t mean I am going to go to an ethnic restaurant and order squid boiled in its own ink and still moving. No I am far to squeamish for that. But I will dip my toe in the different pool at least a couple times a month. So, while down at the farmer’s market, that I try to frequent as often as I can, I saw Buffalo Steaks and asked about them.
Buffalo and Bison meat is low in colesterol and fat, but high in protein. It is very high in flavor and has the same cuts that beef would. Just like beef, it is best served medium–rare, and there is little preparation that is required.
So I purchased some prepared Buffalo Steaks and this is how it went.
Up here in Canada the weather isn’t snowy ALL year round, but it sure looked pretty dark and ominous that day. I got really lucky, and was able to grill the steaks up before the storm hit, although I did have the big umbrella handy. But like I said, unless there’s 10 feet of snow and I can’t get the grill cover off, I can still get out there and grill!
My husband and I had steak left over after all of that. I mean we could have both kept on eating, but we made ourselves stop. But the big question was, what to do with the leftovers…
This was a really great lunch, and the meat with the creamy sauce and cheese and tomatoes… well the whole darn thing was absolutely delicious. So good in fact that I stole the other ½ of the leftover buffalo and had another the next day.
