You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS
My brother forwarded on a u-tube clip of the B.B.Q. Guys making Bacon Wrapped Beer Can Stuffed Burgers. For their recipe they used a half-pound of 80% lean ground beef, pork bacon, and then stuffed it with pulled pork, roast beef, and cheese! They had ribs grilling too, but that was just for snacking! No kidding.
I thought to myself, “heart attack” and, “I bet using Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, and our 95% lean ground buffalo, that I could make a healthier, delicious version”. Below are two options that I think you will really enjoy, and its Paleo friendly!

Ingredients for Meat: (makes 3 burgers)

1 – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Burger
6 – strips Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – bottle beer

Preparation for Meat:

1) Spread meat out onto a plate. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and olive oil over the meat. Mix the seasoned meat together with your hands and portion into three even sized balls.

2) Transfer the balls of buffalo meat to a platter. Press a beer bottle into the center of the portioned meat and bring the meat that squishes out to the sides, up the sides of the bottle uniformly.

3) Wrap the meat with two pieces of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, overlapping the two pieces. Secure bacon with a couple of toothpicks.

4) Remove beer bottle, and stuff with one of the fillings below, pressing in lightly.

5) Pre-heat grill to medium high heat, around 450°. Insure grill grates are clean and oiled. Using a spatula transfer the burgers to the grill, turn the burners that they are directly under the burgers off, and drop the remaining lit burners that are to the sides or side of them to a medium low setting. This will drop your grill temperature to around 325°. Close lid and grill for about 12 minutes rotating burgers halfway through cooking. Move burgers over direct heat, and turn burner to high. Close lid and grill for about two minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

I served the stuffed buffalo burgers with foil wrapped grilled potatoes, which kept all the hot cooking outside. Accompany with a green salad.

Filling Options:

Caramelized Vegetable and Mozzarella Stuffing (stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
8 – ounces cremini mushrooms, steams removed and sliced
1 – medium sweet onion, chopped
2 – tablespoons butter
1 – tablespoon olive oil
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
2 – cloves garlic chopped
1/3 – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
4 – ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preparation:

1) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat butter and olive oil. Add onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper and sauté stirring occassionally, for about 25 minutes, or until nicely browned.

2) Add the garlic cloves and sundried tomatoes, stirring in to incorporate. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes.

3) Remove pan from heat and allow to come to come to room temperature.

4) Once cooled off, stir in shredded mozzarella cheese.

This is sooo good, you will be sneaking bites out of the pan! 🙂

Mediterranean Stuffing :(stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
1 – cup chopped spinach
¼ – cup pepperoncini, chopped
¼ – cup kalamata olives, chopped
¼ – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
¼ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
5 – ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Preparation: Mix all ingredients in bowl to incorporate.
This too is super good too!

PULLED CHUCK TACOS
If you are looking to feed a crowd or to make a fabulous product for many meals, this recipe is one to hold on to. The Chuck Roast is one of my favorite cuts, as it is so flavorful. And, it’s super simple and only has 4 ingredients!

Ingredients:

1 – 3 pound Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast
1 – packet Jill’s Mexican Seasonings
2 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – cups Buffalo Bone Broth or Stock, or organic Beef Stock or Apple Cider, warmed

Preparation:

1) Preheat oven to 500°. Rinse the roast under cold water, remove the netting and pat dry. Cut the roast into 4 pieces.

2) In a heavy pot or Dutch oven, add the seasoning packet & olive oil.

3) Add the meat and rub the seasonings into the meat.

4) Place the pot into the preheated oven and allow to roast for 10 minutes.

5) Reduce the heat to 350°. Add the warmed broth and cover the pot. Braise for 1.5 to 2 hours. Meat should pull apart easily with two forks.

6) Remove the pot from the oven and turn the meat pieces over in the juices. Cover and allow to rest for about an hour, or until you can handle with your hands.

7) Using your hands (gloves recommended) pull the pieces apart until they are shredded to your liking. Add the juices to the shredded meat.

8) Season to taste. I added a pinch of Omnivore Salt & the juice of one lemon, about ¼ cup of juice.

9) Reheat over medium heat, prior to building Taco’s or serving.

For Tacos: (20 meaty Street Sized Taco’s)
I like to slightly brown my shells on a griddle and melt the cheese onto the shell. This is optional, but it gives your tacos a buttery toasted outside, with the melted cheese inside. So good, with just the right amount of crunch.

Ingredients:

Pulled Chuck
20 – Street sized soft flour or corn tortillas
Butter
Organic Mexican Style Cheese or Cheese of your liking
Pico de Gallo

Preparation:

1) Lightly butter both sides of the tortillas.

3) Turn the tortillas and top with cheese. Grill until tortillas start to puff up and cheese starts to melt.

4) Remove tortillas from the griddle and place in a taco holder.

5) Stuff with the Pulled Chuck and top with Pico de Gallo.

Pico de Gallo
A favorite on so many things! You may want to double up on this recipe.

Ingredients:

1- cup finely diced cherry tomatoes
½ – cup finely diced onion, white, red or green onions
½ – cup finely chopped cilantro
1 – jalapeno pepper, finely diced

Bring on the Tacos! You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BISON LIVER TACOS
Wild Idea’s Buffalo Liver is clean and rich, but it also is able to absorb the flavor of a marinade. I added a bit of adobo to my red chili sauce for a little smokiness and then offset/complemented that with a vegetable pico de gallo. It’s sooooo good!

* For a super quick short cut, you could substitute purchased red chili sauce and pico de gallo.

Taco Ingredients: (6 to 8 tacos, 3 to 4 servings)

BISON LIVER TACOS

1 – 8 oz. pkg. Wild Idea Buffalo Liver
1 – onion, halved and sliced thin

1 – cup milk
1 – cup red chili sauce (recipe below)
Olive oil
Butter
6 to 8 – white corn tortillas
Organic Mexican shredded cheese blend
Goat cheese
Vegetable pico de gallo

Preparation:

1 – Rinse the liver under cold water and place it in a bowl with the milk, cover and let it soak in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours.
2 – Remove the liver from the milk, rinse again under cold water and pat dry. Cut the liver pieces into smaller julienne pieces.
3 – Place the sliced liver in a bowl with the red chili sauce and let it marinade for 6 to 24 hours.
4 – Remove the liver from the red chili sauce and place on a paper towel to absorb any liquid.
5 – In a skillet over medium high heat add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of butter and the sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until tender and slightly caramelized.
6 – Add the sliced liver and sauté until the liver is lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat.
7 – On a flat top griddle or in a pan, drizzle a little olive oil and heat. Lightly brown the tortillas and turn. Top with grated cheese while the bottom side is browning. Remove from the griddle/pan.
8 – Top the tortillas with the liver and onions, Pico de Gallo and crumbled goat cheese.
9 – For side dishes, I accompanied the tacos with a cucumber salad and sliced cantaloupe.

Red Chili Sauce

Ingredients:
3 – dried ancho chilies
3 – dried guajillo or Anaheim chilies
3 – cloves garlic
¼ – onion, chopped
2 – cups boiling water
1 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
1 – tablespoon Jill’s Mexican Seasonings or Mexican seasonings
1 – teaspoon sugar

Preparation:

1 – Remove stems and seeds from the dried chilies.
2 – Boil two cups of water and place the dried chilies, garlic cloves and onion in the pot, cover and remove the pot from the heat, allowing the chilies to soften for one hour.
3 – Return the pot to the stove over high heat, heating until small bubbles break the surface.
4 – Pour the liquid and the vegetables into a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth, adding more hot water if needed.
5 – Strain the red chili sauce through a strainer to remove any chili skins.
6 – Season to taste. Serve warm or room temp.
7 – Vegetable Pico de Gallo
So good, you just need a spoon!

Ingredients:
1- cup finely diced cherry tomatoes, *optional – seeds removed
½ – cup finely diced onion, white, red or green onions
½ – cup finely chopped cilantro
1 – small jalapeno pepper, finely diced
½ – cup finely diced, red cabbage

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE. To prepare this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks, Chili Powder, Caraway Seeds, Coriander, Cumin, Salt, Garlic Cloves, Jarred Roasted Red Peppers, Olive Oil, Lemon, and Buns. This Burger sounds and looks incredible! You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE
Living in the country, an hour away from the closest grocery, I often substitute ingredients in recipes, which can sometimes lead to a whole new recipe. My rendition of Harissa Sauce is one of those recipes. It’s my new favorite sauce and although it is terrific on everything (including a spoon), it is particularly great on Wild Idea Bison Sirloin Steaks (or any of our cuts)!

Ingredients: (Makes 2 to 4 servings)

2 – 6 ounce Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks
1 – teaspoon chili powder
½ – teaspoon caraway seeds
½ – teaspoon coriander
½ – teaspoon cumin
½ – teaspoon salt
3 – garlic cloves
1/3 – cup roasted red peppers (I always keep a jar on hand in my pantry)
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – lemon, juiced
2 to 4 – quality buns, brushed with oil and lightly toasted

Preparation:
1 – Rinse the steaks under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
2 – Using a fine tine fork, pierce the steaks at an angle a few times on each side. This will assist with getting the flavors of the Harissa Sauce into the meat.
3 – Mix the spices, roasted red peppers, olive oil, and lemon juice together in a blender and puree until smooth.
4 – Rub half of the Harissa Sauce into the prepped steaks, cover and allow them to rest for 2 hours before cooking, or make ahead of time and place in refrigerator to marinade, removing 2 hours before cooking to allow steaks to come to room temperature. Reserve and refrigerate the other half of the Harissa Sauce for the mayonnaise.
5 – Preheat grill to 500°. Shake off excess marinade and grill over hot heat for 2 minutes on each side. Remove steaks from the grill, cover, and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
6 – Slice steaks thin and pile on to toasted buns. Top with Harissa Mayonnaise, recipe listed below. Fabulous!
7 – Roasted Red Pepper Harissa Mayonnaise
This tasty condiment will keep in a sealed jar in your refrigerator for up to a month.

Ingredients:

½ – batch Harissa Sauce
2 – tablespoons mayonnaise
2 – tablespoons cider or rice vinegar
¼ – cup onions, finely diced
¼ – cup cilantro, chopped
1 – Gently mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl with a fork. Place in a sealed jar and refrigerate until needed. Pull the mayonnaise out about an hour before using to let it come to room temperature.
