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

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Egg. I had another of the SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon. I had it in the freezer, I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried it like last time. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. And like last time it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. That was my last one, I’m going to have to order more of these! Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also, as usual, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

Rain, wind, storms and 60 degrees out. But a cold front came rolling in later in day causing the high winds and heavy rain. Only a high of 36 tomorrow. It was house cleaning today, vacuum and dusted. Had everything done after Lunch and settled in to watch some College Football the rest of the day. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

I just love these Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak w/ Baked Potato and Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared an Egg, sunny side up. I also prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Nice start to a chilly November Morning. 31 degrees out there this morning. It was mostly cloudy and a high of 42 degrees. Mom had some things to do today so i did the laundry for her and looked after Dad. Did a few chores around the house after Lunch. Everything done, I watched some College Football the rest of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Cast Iron Skillet Buffalo Hanging Steak and Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato, Bourbon and Brown Sugar Beans, and baked Texas Toast.

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo had their 16 oz. Hanging Tender Steaks on sale a couple of weeks ago and I ordered a couple of them and I’m having one of them for Dinner tonight. I had it in the freezer so I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. To season it I’ll need; McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley, Dried Rosemary, and Extra Light Olive Oil.

 

 

 

For the Steak; I rinsed the Hanger Steak and pat it dry. Then I grabbed a sharp fillet knife and ran the knife along one side of the sinew that runs down the center, creating two fillets. Remove the sinew from fillet that it remains attached to with knife. When I first found this recipe I didn’t know what the word “sinew” meant. I looked it up and the definition is; sinew – a piece of tough fibrous tissue uniting muscle to bone or bone to bone; a tendon or ligament. Learned something new! Which is why I enjoy cooking so much, you’re always learning something! To continue, next I rubbed the steaks with the Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Pepper, and Rosemary . Cover and allow it to rest at room temperature for 2 hours. I cut the other half of the Steak in half again and I’ll be having them for a couple of Steak and Eggs Breakfasts with that!

 

To start I got out a Cast Iron Skillet out. Sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the Skillet on medium heat. Next I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. Then to start I pan fried it, on medium heat about 2 minutes per side. Starting out cooking it on the stove gave it a nice sear to start. Then I put the Skillet in the oven and roasted it until it had internal temperature of 145 degrees for a medium rare, and it came out perfect, love using Cast Iron Skillets; from the stove to the oven! After removing it from the oven I put the Steak on a plate and lest it rest for 5 minutes before serving. These Steaks are so moist and tender and have that distinct Wild idea Buffalo flavor. The juices off the Steak was just incredible! I also prepared some sauteed Mushrooms to go with Steak.

 

For a side I prepared a Baked Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter.

 

 

 

 

 

Then for another side I prepared some Bush’s Grillin’ Beans Bourbon and Brown Sugar. Not sure if I’ve had these before or not, but they sure are good! As all Bush Beans are. I just emptied the can into a small sauce pan and heated them until they started to simmer and the Beans heated. Love these Bush Beans! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Garlic Texas Toast. For Dessert later a Weight Watcher’s Cookies and Cream Ice Cream Bar.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – BISON STEAKS WITH CHIMICHURRI SAUCE

November 8, 2017 at 6:21 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – BISON STEAKS WITH CHIMICHURRI SAUCE. They used the Wild Idea Buffalo Hanging Tender Steak for the recipe, I just ordered 2 of these Steaks last week. There’s also a recipe for the Chimichurri Sauce. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Hanging Tender Steak along with all the other Wild Idea Products all at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

 

BISON STEAKS WITH CHIMICHURRI SAUCE
Chimichurri sauce is an aromatic herb sauce that originated in Argentina. Although there are many variations on the proportions of herbs and garlic, you should adjust to your own liking. Red wine vinegar or white or red wine may also be substituted, but in making many varieties I feel the white wine vinegar compliments the grass-fed bison a bit more. The one thing you should not adjust is using more oil than vinegar or wine, as it will leave you with an oily sauce.

Chimichurri Ingredients:

1 – cup fresh parsley, coarsely chopped

1 – tablespoon oregano

½ – tablespoon black pepper

1 – tablespoon chili flake or chili powder

½ – teaspoon salt

6 – cloves garlic

1 – teaspoon lemon juice

1/3 – cup white wine vinegar

1/3 – cup olive oil

Preparation:

1 – Place all ingredients in blender and puree.
2 – Divide Chimichurri sauce into 2 portions.
3 – Place steak or steaks in half of the marinade and reserve the other half to serve with steaks.
4 – Allow the steaks to marinade (based on cut) for 2 to 24 hours, with the last two hours before grilling at room temperature.
5 – Shake off excess marinade from steaks and grill over high heat, according to steak cut.
6 – Remove steaks from grill and allow to rest covered at room temperature for 5 minutes.
7 – Serve steaks with Chimichurri sauce at room temperature. Refrigerate unused sauce for later use.
* Note: For recipe feature, I used the Hanging Tender (Hanger Steak). The hanger steak has a long piece of sinew that runs the length of the cut. You can leave it – which I often do, or you can remove it, leaving you with two long pieces. Or you can also cut the two pieces into steak medallions.

I marinated the Hanger Steak for about 6 hours. However, if using a cut that requires longer marinating, such as the Flank Steak, I would marinade it overnight.

16 OZ. HANGING TENDER STEAK
Also known as the hanger steak, this is a coveted favorite of butchers. There is only one hanging tender steak per bison and it is cut from the primal plate. The deep rich flavor and delicate tenderness requires less cooking time. Roast whole or cut for medallions or kebabs. 1 lb.

Today’s Menu: Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried 2 Jennie – O Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Cloudy and 67 degrees for a high, rain showers later in the day and evening. After Breakfast I got the leaf blower out of the shed and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas, tons of leaves! Repaired a shelf in the shed and reorganized a few things in the shed. Not a lot going on today. For Dinner tonight a Bacon Blue Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

I’m having one of the Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER. I’ve had these a few times now and love them! This time I’m adding a couple of slices of Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. Love these new Wild Idea Buffalo Products. It comes frozen and there’s 3 – 1/3 lb. Burger Patties. The Premium Ground Buffalo is mixed with Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese, and seasoning.

 

 

 

To prepare it I’ll need; Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon (2 slices), Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce, and a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun.

 

 

 

 

To start it I seasoned it with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn, lightly seasoned. I then pan fried it, on medium heat, in Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil about 4 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. As the Burger was cooking I fried the 2 slices of the Simple Truth Hickory Smoked Bacon. To serve the Burger I grabbed the Bun and added the Burger, topped it with some of the BBQ Sauce and topped it with the Bacon. Every bite you can taste the Bacon and the Blue Cheese and there was bits of the Buffalo Bacon throughout the Burger. The added Bacon worked great! This Burger is quickly becoming a favorite! Just a flat out excellent Burger!

 

Then for a side I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. Served them with a sprinkle of Crumbled Blue Cheese on top. For dessert later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – BACON BLUE BURGER (3 BURGER PER LB)
Our 100% prairie grass-fed Premium Ground Buffalo mixed with our 100% Buffalo Bacon, Blue Cheese and just the right amount of seasoning! For additional flavor try it with grape jelly or your favorite preserve – absolutely scrumptious! We did the work for you and… you’re welcome! Three one-third pound handcrafted burgers per package.

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – TEXAS RED CHILI. Oh yeah, heat these cool Fall days and nights up with this week’s recipe of TEXAS RED CHILI! Made with Wild Idea Buffalo – 3 LBS. CHUCK ROAST. Also using Mild and Medium Hot Chilies and Spices. You’re going to love this one! You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo – 3 LBS. CHUCK ROAST along with any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products all on the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

TEXAS RED CHILI
For all of you non-bean chili lovers, this recipe is for you! In addition to the instructions below, I would gather and prep all of the ingredients before starting the process, as I found I needed to stir frequently. To avoid getting the chili to hot, I used a combination of mild and medium hot chilies. You can adjust the heat to your liking with cayenne pepper. I stayed true to the San Antonio recipe, using lots of onions, garlic, spices, and Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast. The preparation was easy and I have to say the end result was pretty darn good! I hope you enjoy it too.

Ingredients:

1 – 3 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast, rinsed, patted dry and cut into 1/4” pieces

4 – tablespoons olive oil

4– tablespoons butter

1/3 – cup masa/corn flour
2 – tablespoons Mexican oregano

2 – tablespoons cumin

2 – tablespoons Mexican chili powder

1 – tablespoon salt

1 – teaspoon black pepper

3 – Texas sweet onions, about 7 cups

6 – garlic cloves, diced, about 3 tablespoons

2 – cups organic beef broth

2 – cups water

4 – dried Ancho chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

6 – dried medium red chilies, stems removed, seeded and coarse chopped

1 – fresh Serrano chili, stem removed, seeded and finely chopped

1 – tablespoon brown sugar
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lime juice

*optional ½ – teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preparation:

1 – Prep ingredients. Spread meat out onto a large baking sheet and sprinkle with the corn flour.

2 – In a large cast iron or heavy pot, over medium high heat, heat pan and add 2 tablespoons each of the butter and olive oil.

3 – Add half of the floured meat to the pan and allow to brown, stirring occasionally, scraping the bottom up to keep browning even. Remove browned meat from pan with a spoon and place on a plate. Repeat this step with the remaining butter, olive oil and meat.

4 – Add the first browned meat back to the pot, along with the seasonings, stirring to incorporate.

5 – Add chopped onions and garlic, again stirring occasionally, scraping up the bottom. Allow the onions and garlic to cook for about 7 minutes.

6 – Add the broth and water to the pot, stirring again as above.

7 – Reduce heat to simmer and cover the pot.

8 – Place all of the diced chilies in a food processor (small ones work best) and chop. After peppers are a bit more chopped, add ½ cup of the pot liquids to the processor and blend again, creating more of a paste.

9 – Add the pepper paste to the pot, stir to incorporate and cover. Allow the chili to simmer for a couple of hours, stirring as above occasionally.

10 – When the meat is tender, add the brown sugar and lime juice. Stir to incorporate, and allow to simmer a few more minutes.

11 – Taste, and adjust seasoning to your taste, adding the cayenne if more heat is needed.

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

 

 

To start my morning off I had Steak and Egg again! I had 1 of the SayersBrook 4 oz. Bison Filet Mignon left in the freezer, I laid it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I fried it like last time. I just seasoned it with some McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then grabbed a small skillet, sprayed it with Pam Cooking Spray, and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. Fried the first side 3 minutes and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. And like last time it came out a perfect medium rare! It was so tender and juicy. That was my last one, I’m going to have to order more of these! Then I also fried up a Sunny Side Egg and toasted a couple of slices of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. Sure tough to beat a Steak and Egg Breakfast! Also, as usual, my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea.

 

Rain and 73 degrees out. Mom went to Church and I stayed home keeping an eye on Dad. After Breakfast I did a couple of loads of laundry for Mom. Then I started cleaning the house, ran the vacuum and dusted. Caught up on everything so I stretched out and watched a few shows I had recorded. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Bacon and Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I can only go so long without having a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger! I just love these Buffalo Burgers! I made this one combining my two favorites, Wild idea Buffalo and Jennie – O Turkey! I used Jennie – O Turkey Bacon for my Burger topping. Heated up a medium size skillet on medium high heat and fried the Bacon until it was crisp. Removed it from the skillet to a Paper Towel lined plate, and set aside. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it. Because, at least when I fry Bacon, you end up eating as much as you fix as you’re preparing it! For the Buffalo Burger I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Just love these Buffalo Burgers; meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, seasoned my Burger with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I then pan fried it, in Extra Light Olive Oil, about 3 1/2 minutes per side, after flipping the Burger I added my slice of Cheese, Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar with about 1 minute of cooking time left. Topped it with the Turkey Bacon and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Hamburger Bun. Love a good Burger and love these Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers, and topped with the Jennie – O Turkey Bacon it just adds to the goodness!

 

 

To go with my Burger I baked some Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Chocolate Pudding.

This guy loves Pizza! And this week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Buffalo Italian Sausage and Mushroom Pizza. It’s made with Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage. Included are the recipes for the Pizza, Pizza Dough, Basil Pesto, and Caramelized Onions. It’s another great recipe from Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo. https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

 

Italian Buffalo Sausage and Mushroom Pizza (3 medium or 6 small pizza)
Who doesn’t love pizza? And good pizza is well – irresistible. This will require a little bit of time, but all the steps are super easy. Although I attempted my own pizza sauce, it just was not as good (and I tried many) as my favorite purchased brand, Mezzetti, which has a deep richness that I could not duplicate. For best results apply your toppings evenly and not too heavily. Baking the pizza can be done in a variety of ovens and the timelines for those are noted at the end of the recipe.

Ingredients:

* 1 – 1 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage
* 1 – recipe, pizza crust
* ½ – cup basil pesto
* 1 – cup pizza sauce *Mezzetti
* 1 ½ – cups mushrooms, sliced
* ¾ – cup caramelized onions
* 12 – ounces fresh mozzarella or substitute chevre with fennel pollen
* 9 – ounces parmesan, grated
* salt, pepper & chili flake to taste
* flour and cornmeal

Preparation:

1 -Prepare pizza dough per instructions below. Lightly flour work surface and your hands. Stretch and hold dough with one hand and form a fist with the other and place under the dough. Place on peel, baking sheet, or pizza stone that has been generously covered with flour or corn meal. Adjust shape with hands by stretching or scrunching dough into place.
2 – In a large saucepan over medium high heat, add the olive oil and crumble Buffalo Italian Sausage into pan. Lightly brown and stir occasionally breaking up sausage to desired pieces, about 4 minutes.
3 – Spread pizzas with basil pesto, followed by the pizza sauce.
4 – Top each pizza with desired amount of sliced mushrooms, caramelized onions, Buffalo Italian Sausage, mozzarella or chèvre, and parmesan cheese.
5 – Baking:
Outdoor Brick Ovens: Have heat at about 700°. Slide pizza off peel and bake in oven for about 4 minutes, rotating once or twice while baking.
* Indoor convection ovens: Place oven rack to lower level and preheat oven to as high as heat will go, 500° to 550°. Bake on pizza stone or baking sheet for 8 to 12 minutes depending on your heat.
* Gas Grill: Line gas grill rack low to flames with bricks and place bricks on upper grill rack if you have one. Place pizza stone on top of bricks (good old fashioned red bricks work great). Turn all burners to high heat and allow the grill to get very hot, so bricks are heated through, about 30 minutes. The bricks will help in retaining the heat and offer a more even cooking distribution. Slide pizza off of peel onto pizza stone and close grill lid. Bake, turning once for about 6 minutes.
* Remove pizza from oven or grill and place on a cutting board. Allow the pizza to rest for a few minutes before cutting. Season with chili flake as desired.

Pizza Dough (makes 3 medium or 6 large crusts) *Credit to Peter Reinhart.
This is fabulous dough! If not used for pizza it makes a great flatbread, brushed with a little pesto prior to baking.

Ingredients:

* 4½ – cups high protein flour (I used half Kernza whole grain flour & half organic bread flour)
* 1¾ – teaspoon salt
* 1 – teaspoon quick yeast
* 2 – tablespoons olive oil
* 1¾ – cup water, very cold
Preparation: In mixing bowl using a dough hook, sift flour, salt and yeast together. Add olive oil and water, scraping down sides as needed. Continue to mix for 6 minutes, stopping every two minutes to remove dough from the hook. Dust hands with flour and remove dough from mixer and place on flour dusted work surface. Knead dough for 1 to 2 minutes. Dough should spring back from touch. Divide into desired sizes and form into balls. Brush dough lightly with oil, place on lightly oiled baking sheet and cover loosely with saran or a plastic bag. Refrigerate for 8 hours or up to 3 days. Remove from refrigeration and allow to rest at room temperature for 4 hours. Proceed to Pizza instructions. *Dough can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Basil Pesto
*I am not a ground pine nut fan, but if you are, add ¼ cup to ingredients.

Ingredients:

* 2 – cups fresh basil leaves, packed
* 2 – cups shredded parmesan cheese
* 3 – garlic cloves, chopped
* 1 – tsp. salt
* 1 – tsp. pepper (I like a little more)
* 2 – Tb. lemon juice
* 1 – cup olive oil
Preparation: Place all ingredients in blender and puree until smooth. Refrigerate.

Caramelized Onions

Ingredients:

* 1 – tablespoon butter
* 1 – tablespoon olive oil
* 2 – cups onions, diced
* 1 – tablespoons sugar+
* 1 – teaspoon balsamic vinegar
* season with salt and pepper
Preparation: Heat butter and oil in sauté pan over medium high heat. Add onions and sauté for 3 minutes. Add remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Reduce heat to low and stir occasionally. Cook for 25 minutes or until golden brown.
