Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

With Double Baked Potatoes

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks come from a water buffalo, not a man in a unicorn mask, he was selling bath stuff. They're lower in cholesterol and higher in mineral content than beef. This is good. They're flavorful, slightly gamey, but not overpoweringly so. Water Buffalo steaks are just plain good. (So is their milk by the way). At the Water Buffalo Festival in Sterling, I had the intense pleasure to try smoked Buffalo ribs, and other interesting substances. I was immediately hooked and bought some of everything. When it came time to grill these steaks up, I wanted the meat to shine, so I seasoned simply, as you know I love to do when it comes to steak, and went to town. Check your specialty butcher for interesting meat like Water Buffalo.

Water Buffalo Strip Steaks

Serves: 2       Total Time: 65 Minutes


  • 2 NY strip style Water Buffalo Steaks
  • 3 tbsp. Cattle BoyZ Gourmet Seasoning
  • 1 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. red chilli flakes
  • 2 medium baking potatoes
  • 1 tbsp. oil
  • 3 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. chopped fresh chives
  • 1/2 cup of fresh shredded swiss cheese
  • 1 clove garlic, grated
  • salt and pepper to taste


Step 1
Preheat your grill to 450°F. You will be using both direct and indirect grilling, so you only need 1 burner on.
Step 2
Scrub your potatoes, then rub them with the oil, sprinkle with salt to taste. Bake the potatoes over indirect heat for 25 to 30 minutes, or until soft.
Step 3
While your potatoes are baking, combine the Cattle BoyZ Gourmet Seasoning, brown sugar, and red chilli flakes. If you have a fat cap, slice the fat in a cross hatch pattern. Rub the steaks thoroughly with the seasoning mix and let them sit until you're ready to sear them. Use this time to shred your cheese, and prep the other ingredients.
Step 4
When the potatoes are baked, remove them from the grill. Slice the tops off and scrape out the insides, leaving about 1/4-inch around the inside of the skin. Add the butter, chives, cheese (reserve some for topping if you want), and garlic. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Whip the potatoes until they're the desired texture, then stuff the shells again with the whipped potatoes.
Step 5
Place the potatoes on the grill over indirect heat to warm up again. Sear the steaks over direct heat for 2 minutes before turning clockwise 45° and grilling for another 2 minutes. Flip and repeat.
Step 6
Once done, remove the steaks from the grill and allow them to rest for 5 to 10 minutes before serving with the potatoes right off the grill, and some roasted broccoli or other seasonal vegetables.
