Drunken Kidneys

Meat guru, Hugh Fearnley Whittingstall, inspired this recipe. In his rendition, he states that, “If you don’t like kidney, or you’re not quite sure, this recipe will convert you.” I fell in the “not quite sure category”, but I also believe it’s important to consume the whole animal, so thought I would give it a try. I was quickly converted. It is a delicious dish, and would make a terrific hors d’oeuvre for your next party.

Ingredients:
1 – Wild Idea Buffalo Kidney
1 – cup milk
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – cup mushrooms, chopped
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
¼ – cup red current or plum jelly
1 – cup dry sherry
1 – cup white wine
2 – teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
¼ – teaspoon cayenne, *I added more
1 – tablespoon, Dijon mustard
1 – tablespoon cream or sour cream
fresh parsley and chives, chopped

Preparation:
1) Rinse kidney, pat dry, and cut into pieces. Place kidney in a bowl and cover with the milk. Soak for 2 to 24 hours. Drain the milk from the kidney and pat dry.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat oil. Add the kidney and season with the salt and pepper. Sauté until browned, tossing or stirring occasionally.

3) Stir in the mushrooms and sauté for a couple more minutes.

4) Add the cider vinegar and then the jelly. Stir to incorporate.

5) Add the sherry, wine, Worcestershire, cayenne, and Dijon. Stir to incorporate. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer for about 30 minutes.

6) Remove lid and stir in cream. Season to taste, garnish with fresh herbs, and serve with toast points

Chef Boyardee Lasagna w/ Texas Toast (Light)

Today’s Menu: Chef Boyardee Lasagna w/ Texas Toast (Lite)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a Sunny Side Up Egg, Simply Potato Shredded Hash Browns, 2 Buffalo Breakfast Sausage Patties, 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s 1 Calorie Wheat Bread (topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter), and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Tea. I usually don’t have a Big Breakfast but I was starved this morning! First time I prepared the Wild Idea Ground Breakfast Sausage. It comes in a 1 lb. package and I form the Patties. These cam out delicious, another great Buffalo Product from Wild Idea Buffalo!

 

 

 

Cloudy, rain and 52 degrees out today. Just did a few chores around the house today. I got everything done and just kicked back and got caught up on some shows I had recorded. Had no clue on what to have for Dinner. Wanted a hot Meal but something not real heavy and easy to prepare. Bring on the Chef! For Dinner tonight Chef Boyardee Lasagna and Texas Toast (Light).

 

I’ve always been a huge fan of Chef Boyardee products and love their Chef Boyardee Lasagna, Ravioli, and Spaghetti and Meatballs. To prepare it; the easy part! Just empty the contents into a small sauce pan, put the lid on, and heat on medium until heated through. Just stir it occasionally and your done. The Pasta Lasagna is excellent and the Tomato and Beef Sauce it comes in is very good. I know there’s better stuff out there but from time to time I love having Chef Boyardee.

 

I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Lite Texas Toast, one of my slices of this. I hear they no longer make it. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


WILD IDEA BUFFALO – BREAKFAST SAUSAGE 12 OZ.
Our prairie bison mixed with hints of sage and maple makes this a healthy breakfast meat alternative. Serve it up with sunny-side eggs and pancakes or use in stuffing and sauces. Available in a 12 oz. of ground breakfast sausage, not in links.

Ingredients: 100% Grass-Fed Buffalo, Water, Sea Salt, Organic Spices: Brown Sugar, Crushed Red Pepper, Sage, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Ground Allspice.

Today’s Menu: Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Seasoned Diced Potatoes and Green Beans

 

 

For Breakfast I prepared a Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambler – Egg Whites, Crumbled Turkey Sausage and Cheddar Cheese. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Partly cloudy and 60 degrees out today. I cleaned the house today, dusted and ran the vacuum. Cleaned and straightened the spare room closet, and it needed it! For Dinner tonight I prepared a Sea Salt Herb Rubbed Tri-Tip Buffalo Steak w/ Seasoned Diced Potatoes and Green Beans. We had this trio of Buffalo Steak, Seasoned Diced Potatoes and Green Beans a while back and they were so good together we are having them again!

 

I had the Steaks in the freezer so I sat them in the fridge to thaw all night. To prepare the Steak I preheated the oven to 400°. Then I took a Cast Iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to, I heated it over medium high heat. When ready I added my Steaks to it. I cooked the Steaks 1 minute on each side. I just wanted a light sear on both sides. Then I moved the Skillet on to the preheated Oven and Roasted it for about 4 minutes. Removed the Skillet from the Oven and placed the Steaks on a plate and let them rest for 5 minutes before cutting. The Tri -Tip Steak was super tender and juicy. I cooked it to medium rare and it came perfect!

 

For a side I prepared some Simply Potatoes Seasoned Diced Potatoes. Just love using all the Simply Potatoes Products, always easy to prepare, fresh and delicious Potato Dishes. These come seasoned with Steakhouse type of Seasoning, I added some Sea Salt.

 

Then I also heated up a can of Del Monte Cut Green Beans. Just empty the can into a sauce pan and heat until heated through. I just love Green Beans, all Beans! For Dessert/Snack  later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

GRILLED JERK BUFFALO RIBS
This recipe will work for both short ribs and back ribs with a little adjustment, which is noted below. You may want to double this recipe as seconds are often requested

Ingredients:

1 – pkg. Buffalo 2.5 lbs. BBQ Back Ribs or 3 lbs. Short Rib Strips
2/3 – cup ketchup
Jerk Marinade

Ingredients:

1 – cup pineapple juice
¼ – cup soy

¾ tsp Cayenne Pepper
½ tsp. Black Pepper
½ tsp. anise
½ tsp Cinnamon

Preparation:
1 – Rinse ribs and pat dry with paper towel.
2 – Mix all marinade ingredients together in blender and pulse to incorporate.
3 – Divide marinade in half.
4 – For BACK RIBS: Place ribs and half of marinade in plastic bag and massage marinade into ribs. Marinate ribs for 4 to 24 hours hours. For SHORT RIBS: Place ribs in slow cooker with half of marinade and 1 cup of water. Cover and braise for 6 hours on medium. Increase heat to shorten braising time or decrease heat to lengthen braising time. Meat will become very tender and bones may fall away. If your preference is for chewier ribs decrease braising time.
5 – Mix the other half of marinade with ketchup and set aside.
6 – Remove ribs from marinade, shaking off excess, (do carefully for braised ribs, as meat will be fall apart tender). Place ribs on foil, curling edges of foil to hold ribs in place, but leaving top open. Brush both sides of ribs with Jerk BBQ sauce.
7 – Pre-heat gas grill to medium high heat of about 400°.
8 – Place foil pan of ribs on grill over heat and make a few slits in the foil with a knife. Close grill lid and grill for 6 minutes each side. Remove SHORT RIBS, but repeat process for BACK RIBS adding more sauce if desired.

Serve Jerk Buffalo Ribs with Fruited Coleslaw, and Coconut Rice with Black Beans. These accompaniments are very complimentary to this dish.

Today’s Menu: Grilled Buffalo Cheese and Bacon Burger and Baked Fries

 

To start the day off I toasted Thomas Light English Muffin that I topped with some Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 79 degrees and mostly sunny out today. Got the cart, rake, leaf blower and grass seed out of the shed. Raked the yard and then took the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then took the blower and got the flower beds. Then finished sowing some grass seed in few spots around the yard. Love getting out in this weather! For Dinner tonight Grilled Buffalo Cheese and Bacon Burger and Baked Fries.

 

For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! I had the Burger in the freezer so I laid in the fridge overnight to thaw. Uncovered the grill and cleaned it up. Used a Paper Towel and rubbed it in some Extra Light Olive Oil. Then rubbed the Grill Grate down with it. Then fired up the Grill! Seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. With the Grill heated I started grilling. I grilled the Buffalo Burger and Brat and Hot Dog for Mom. I grilled the Burger about 3 minutes and flipped it over. After 2 minutes I added a slice of Boar’s Head Yellow Vermont Cheddar and cooked it another 1 minute. Added the al fresco Chicken Bacon that I had prepared earlier and done! Served the Burger on a Healthy Life Wheat Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Products are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger! Plus that added flavor by grilling it.

 

To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries. Like all the Ore Ida Products, they are easy to prepare and delicious. I just baked them for 19 minutes and done! Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.
