Mmm, buffalo...

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I've eaten buffalo meat before. Bought it from grocery stores, ordered it online. I remember liking it, but I think I had forgotten just how good it is because holy hand grenade did the pound of ground buffalo that I bought at the farmers' market last Friday make for a tasty meatloaf! It tastes like beef but somehow beefier. I'm pretty sure I've had this revelation before, but right now all I know is I paid $9/pound for this hunk of ground meat and it was worth. every. penny!

If you want the recipe for this magic meatloaf, here it is:

1 pound of awesome free-range local grass fed ground buffalo meat
1 egg (preferably purchased from your local Amish farmer)
Salt and pepper
A teeny tiny bit (maybe half a teaspoon) of coconut flour to sop up the excess moisture

Squish together, bake in toaster oven at 350 until done, around 1 hour

Try not to eat it all in one sitting. emoticon

Pairs extremely well with sautéed broccoli, with sauteed apples for dessert! (apple, pecans, butter, cinnamon - sautee until apples are tender).

*Funny aside - when I was on a road trip with a couple of girls earlier this month and we drove by some grazing cows, the first thing that blurted out of my mouth was "oooh, they look delicious!" This was followed by an awkward silence, and then "...and they're really cute when they're babies?" Fortunately there were no vegetarians in the car, but I still get needled every time cows come up in conversation. =D What can I say, I love me some grass-fed ruminant!

    Haha at that story!

I love bison too, but haven't splurged on it in awhile. You've got me craving it now though!

    Whenever we drive past cows, my boyfriend always says, "Awww, look at the hamburgers."

  Quality over quantity is better. I've only had it once. It was pricey. Sounds delicious.
