When I visited the Water Buffalo Festival in September I got my hands on a bunch of great cuts of buffalo meat. The filets have been languishing in my freezer since then, but I felt the need to whip out a good steak recipe. That's when we had Pepper Crusted Water Buffalo Filet With Squashed & Crispy Roasted Potatoes
. The intense pepper and the succulent meat paired beautifully. The pepper didn't overpower the unique, beefy-gaminess of the meat; which can happen often if you're not careful. Serving this with a dollop of sour cream on the crunchy potatoes helped too. That little bit of sour cream mixed with the juices and you got a sauce that instantly cooled the heat of a rogue peppercorn. Naturally the tenderloin (filet mignon) melted in your mouth too. Such a simple and decadent meal.
