Buffalo Results

I decided to go simple on the buffalo steaks to see what they really tasted like. Just a little salt, pepper and garlic powder thrown under the broiler. We cooked them to medium-well. The steaks rested 10 minutes before we ate them.

The results: The steaks were juicy and flavorful. Almost lamby in flavor (which isn't a favorite of mine, so that could be a negative too).  Justin LOVED the flavor. They were also relatively tough, which was an odd combination with the juiciness.The sides of roasted cauliflower and corn pudding rounded out the meal.

I am not sure if I would purchase them again. These were on sale only about $4 a steak, so not too bad for grassfed meat. If I did, I would probably slow cook them with some fat to soften it up. Maybe buffalo stew with black olives, olive oil, tomatoes and rosemary? Hmmmm. With polenta??

  1. I'm glad that the meat was flavorful and juicy. That is odd that it was a little rough though. Thanks for the post.
