Today’s Menu: 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast

 

For Breakfast I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin and I topped it with Smucker’s Sugar Free Blackberry Jam. I also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another perfect Autumn Day out there today! We had a high of 75 degrees and sunny all day. I got all my yard work done early and spent the afternoon watching College Football. For Dinner tonight we had a 5 oz. Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Baked Texas Toast.

 

I prepared one of our favorite Steaks, a Petite Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato, Salad, and Baked Texas Toast. I’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (5 oz.). To prepare the Steak; I rubbed the Steak with a 1 teaspoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheated the oven on 400 degrees and heated up a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 1 minute per side. Then moved the skillet to the oven and cooked it another 5 minutes to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So tender and juicy and the best flavor of any Steak, Beef or Buffalo, I’ve ever had.

 

For one side I had a baked Russet Potato. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Perfect side for any Steak Dinner!

 

I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Texas Toast. For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Lemonade/Tea Snapple.

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

September 22, 2021 at 6:02 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. The recipe is made using one of my favorite cuts, the Wild Idea Buffalo – HANGING TENDER STEAK. These are so tender and delicious! The Steaks are marinated in a Chimichurri Sauce. Chimichurri Sauce is a herb sauce that originated in Argentina. The recipe and preparation are both included below. 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 2021! 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.

HANGING TENDER STEAK 16 OZ.
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. Available as a 16 oz. steak.

BUFFALO TORTILLA SOUP
This traditional Mexican soup takes on a whole new “el yumo” taste with our easy to use, heat and eat Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast. My recipe is simple, but I promise it will not disappoint! I do have one warning though, when making the tortilla strips, be sure to have celery sticks close at hand to try to keep you from eating all of the hot, limed & salted crispy strips! No guarantee’s on that though. *Recipe can easily be halved.

1 – lime, halved

Toppings:
1 to 2 – avocado, peeled, seeded, and chopped
4 – ounces Queso Chihuahua, shredded
½ – cup cilantro, chopped
1 – lime, cut into wedges

Preparation:

1 – In a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium high heat.
2 – Add ¼ of the tortillas strips and fry until crispy, about 3 minutes. Remove from oil and place on a brown bag, sprinkle with salt and a squeeze of lime. Repeat until all of the strips are cooked.
3 – Transfer 1 tablespoon of the oil used to fry tortillas into a soup pot, over medium high heat.
4 – Add the onions, garlic, chilies, and seasonings to the pot. Allow vegetables to lightly brown, stirring occasionally.
5 – Add the tomatoes, broth, and remaining 6 tortillas and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cook for about one hour.
6 – Remove from heat and let set for half an hour.
7 – Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and mix until smooth. Return soup to medium high heat and bring to a gentle boil.
8 – Add the two packages of the Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast and and stir to incorporate. Heat for 5 minutes, then stir in the juice of half of a fresh lime and season to taste.
9 – To serve, ladle soup into bowls, top with crispy tortillas strips, avocado, grated cheese, and fresh cilantro. Accompany with fresh lime wedges.

Today’s Menu: Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 91 degrees, humid and mostly sunny out today. I had a very bad night as I struggled with Phantom Pains all last night until around 10:00 this morning. So all I wanted was peace and quiet and to get caught up on sleep. So that was my day! For Dinner tonight it’s a Roast Beef and Vermont Cheddar Sandwich w/ Chips and Dip.

 

 

After a very restless and sleepless night I wanted something easy to prepare, and what can be easier than making a Sandwich and having some Potato Chips! I had purchased some of the Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef from Kroger. It was a beautiful cooked medium rare and too good to sit in the fridge for long! So for my Sandwich I’ll be using the Boar’s Head Roast Beef, a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese, Kraft Reduced Fat Mayo w/ Olive Oil, French’s Yellow Mustard, and served on Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Wheat Bread. Now this is a Sandwich! I Can’t even describe how delicious the Boar’s Head Rare Roast Beef and Cheese is. It’s just so tender and flavorful. And of course Cheese, which makes anything better, with the Mayo and Mustard makes this the perfect Sandwich! To go with the Sandwich I’m having some Mike Sell’s Reduced Fat Potato Chips with some Lay’s Ranch Dip. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Stick Pretzels along with a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roast Beef

Hand-trimmed and carefully seasoned with pepper, garlic, onion and a hint of lemon for tartness, this cut is then slow-roasted to tender perfection. Boar’s Head London Broil Cap-Off Top Round Oven Roasted Beef packs classic meaty flavor in each rich and savory slice.

PAPPARDELLE AND PESTO MEATBALLS
A fresh spin on traditional spaghetti and meatballs. Pappardelle (pronounced; Pop a dell a) noodles although egg based, are mostly very light, but this will depend on the brand you can find. My favorites are Rustichella D’arbruzzo or DeCecco. This recipe is a wonderful combination of flavors. For a complete meal I accompanied this dish with a Citrus Salad with Orange Chev Vinaigrette (recipe included with purchase upon request) and crusty bread. Great for a family style dinner – that kids will love, or sophisticated enough to serve at your next dinner party.

All the components make this recipe seem complicated, but the preparation is very easy and does not take a lot of time. For a super short-cut, you could buy ready-made pesto. Bon Appetito!

1 – 28oz. can whole stewed Italian tomatoes
1 – 28 oz. can crushed Italian tomatoes

Preparation:

1 – In deep pot, over medium high heat, add stewed tomatoes and smash with a potato masher, breaking tomatoes into pieces.
2 – Add crushed tomatoes and bring to a light boil.
Add remaining ingredients, stirring to incorporate.
3 – Reduce heat to simmer and allow tomato sauce to thicken, about 15 minutes or until desired consistency is achieved.
4 – Season to taste with a pinch more of salt and an additional squeeze of lemon or to your liking.

Pappardelle Ingredients:
12 – ounces Pappardelle
4 – quarts water
2 – tablespoons salt
1/2 – cup pesto, or more if you prefer – room temperature

Preparation:

Remove from heat and strain water from the pot, leaving about 1 to 2 tablespoons of water in the pot. Do not return to heat.

4 – Add pesto to the Pappardelle and toss gently.

Basil Pesto
* I am a non-pine-nut person. If you prefer them in your pesto, simply add them to the recipe. Recipe can easily be cut in half.

Ingredients:
2 – cups fresh basil leaves, packed
2 – cups shredded parmesan cheese
3 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon pepper (*I like a little more)
1 – tablespoon lemon juice (*I like a little more)1 – cup olive oil

Today’s Menu: 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans and Baked Potato

 

To start my day off I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. High of 78 degrees, partly cloudy and low humidity. Another good day out there. After my Tea I headed to Kroger and then on to Meijer. We needed quite a few items. Back home just a few things outside. For Dinner tonight I prepared a couple of 6 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Beans and Baked Potatoes.

 

I had a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo 6 oz. Sirloin Steaks in the freezer and I set them in the fridge overnight to thaw. I love these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks, always lean and so delicious! I first heated the oven to 400 degrees. To prepare it I rubbed the Steak with a teaspoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Then seasoned it with Dried Rosemary and McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. As the Steak rested I preheat a Cast Iron Skillet, that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray, on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloins, I cooked them 2 minutes per side and finished them in the oven to a beautiful Medium Rare! The Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are just incredible. So juicy and tender. I prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with the Steak.

 

I prepared a can of Bush’s Country Style Baked Beans. Just open the can and empty the Beans Into Saucepan. Heat To Simmer until heated through. Love these Bush’s Beans!

 

 

I also had a baked Russet Potato for a side with Steak. Seasoned that with the McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, and topped with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. I also had an Aunt Millie’s Live Carb Smart Dinner Roll, love these Rolls! Then for Dessert/Snack later 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Sprite Zero to drink.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – BUFFALO WELLINGTON

September 1, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is BUFFALO WELLINGTON. To make this week’s recipe you can use either the Wild Idea Buffalo Tenderloin Steaks or Top Sirloin Steaks. Included are the recipes for a Pate and Marsala or Madiera Sauce. Better than Beef Wellington, it’s Buffalo Wellington! 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 2021! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BUFFALO WELLINGTON
(serves 6 to 8)

The traditional Wellington is typically made using the Tenderloin cut and Foie Grois Pate. I find this dish plenty rich without the Foie Gras and prepare a savory vegetable pate instead. You can prepare using whole Tenderloin, or my favorite is using individual pre-cut steaks (Tenderloin or Top Sirloin steaks work well), creating the perfect portion. Another option for hors d’oeuvres, is using our Tenderloin Tips, for a delicious pop in your mouth Petite Wellingtons.

Ingredients:

6 or 8 – 5oz. to 8oz. Tenderloin Steaks or Top Sirloin Steaks, rinsed and patted dry
1 Tb. olive oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
2 to 4 sheets Puff Pastry, thawed (4 serving per sheet for 5oz steaks, 2 servings per sheet for 8oz. You may have some scraps left over.)

Ingredients for Pate: (Makes enough for 8 Steaks, or 1 whole Tenderloin. Left overs can be tossed with rice or used in a soup at a later time.)

4 Tb. butter
1 cup onion, diced
4 medium cloves garlic, chopped
½ cup carrot, shopped and flash processed
½ cup celery, chopped and flash processed
2 cups mushrooms, diced
2 cups mushrooms, sliced
1 tsp. fresh rosemary, minced
2 tsp. dry thyme
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
1½ cup’s dry sherry
½ cup red wine

Preparation:

1 – Rub individual steaks with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
2 – Heat heavy sauté pan over medium high heat and place prepped steaks in hot pan.
3 – Brown for 1 minute each side for 5 oz. cut or 2 minutes each side for 8oz. cut.
4 – Remove from pan, and set aside, loosely covered with saran.
5 – Return pan to heat and add butter, onion, garlic, carrots, celery and seasonings. Sauté for 6 minutes.
6 – Add chopped mushrooms and continue to sauté for an additional 4 minutes.
7 – Fold in remaining sliced mushrooms and sauté for 2 minutes.
8 – Deglaze pan with sherry and bring to full heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until liquids are almost gone, about 10 minutes.
9 – Add red wine and simmer until all liquids are gone, but pate is still moist.
10 – Remove pate from pan and allow it to come to room temperature. Reserve pan, do not wash.
11 – Cut puff pastry into squares, roll out lightly or stretch gently with hands.
12 – To assemble pat juices away with paper towel from the bottom of prepared steaks and place in the center of the pastry. Top steaks with desired amount of vegetable pate. Pull two opposite pastry corners up and over steak and pate, folding in sides. Pinch pastry together, right below pastry corner, leaving a leaf like tab. Repeat with the other two corners. Pinch all together at top, pulling on pastry corners to create a leaf like design. Place Wellingtons on lightly oiled baking sheet or non-stick baking sheet. Wellingtons can be loosely covered with saran wrap and placed in the refrigerator until ready to bake, for up to 2 hours.
13 – Pre-heat oven to 475*. Place Wellingtons in hot oven and bake until pastry is golden brown, 7 to 10 minutes.
Serve with wild rice and Wine Sauce.

Ingredients for Marsala or Madiera Sauce:

2 Tb. butter
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 cups Dry Marsala, Dry Madeira or lighter bodied red wine
2 cups buffalo or organic beef stock
1 Tb. arrowroot

Preparation:

Return sauté pan to medium high heat and add the butter. While butter is melting, scrape up the brown bits from the bottom. Add mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes. Add wine and stock, and bring to full heat. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer until liquids have reduced to half. Turn heat back to medium high. Mix arrowroot with ¼ cup cold water and whisk into hot sauce. Reduce heat to low. Season to taste. Serve immediately or remove from heat and reheat for later use.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI

August 25, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI. Made using Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with Cremini Mushrooms, Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano Cheese, Cream, and Green Onions. A Recipe sure to please all! 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 2021! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI
A month ago I had the privilege of spending a couple of weeks in Italy. One of my favorite pasta dishes while I was there was a sausage and mushroom stuffed ravioli with sage butter. After about two weeks of being home I gave into my cravings and gave making homemade pasta another try. I won’t lie, it is a little tricky, but once you have the hang of it, it gets a little easier. The end result wasn’t as perfect as what I was served, but it was delicious and my family loved it. Note, I made a smaller batch, which made about 50 ravioli’s, but the recipe could easily be doubled. And, if made ahead it would be great for a crowd (but, I wouldn’t make it and have company on the same day).

Sausage Filling:
½ – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage
8 – ounces cremini mushrooms, stemmed and coarse chopped
1 – cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano cheese
2 – tablespoons cream
4 – green onions, coarse chopped
2 – teaspoons olive oil
2 – teaspoons butter
1 – teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

1 – In a sauté pan over medium high heat, add olive oil and butter.
2 – Add mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes.
3 – Crumble the Buffalo Sausage into the pan and stir into the mushrooms. Sauté until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
4 – Remove the pan from heat and transfer the sausage to a food processor along with the cream. Pulse process until the mixture is incorporated.
5 – Add the cheese and pulse process again until incorporated.
6 – Scrape down the sides and along the bottom to incorporate any missed pieces and add the green onions. Flash process, leaving bits of green visible.
7 – Remove the blade and cover until you are ready to use. You can also make this ahead and refrigerate for a later use.
Pasta Dough:
1 – cup semolina flour *I blended this flour in my smoothie blender to make a little more fine.
1 – cup high protein flour or all-purpose flour +
1 – teaspoon salt
3 – eggs, beaten
1 – tablespoon olive oil +
1 – egg white, beaten

Salt for pasta water
Sage leaves and lemon wedges for garnish

Preparation:

1 – Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl and stir.
2 – Create an impression in the center of the flour and add the eggs and oil.
3 – Using a dough hook, mix the ingredients together. If too stiff, add a little cold water. Cover your mixer with a dishtowel to avoid flying dough.
4 – Scrape the dough off of the hook occassionally and continue to beat the dough for an additional 6 minutes on low to medium low speed.
5 – Remove the dough and place on a floured surface. Knead the dough a few times by hand and shape into a ball. Rub with a little oil and cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
6 – Cut your dough into manageable pieces. I cut mine into 8 pieces.
7 – Press each piece into a rectangular shape with your hand, before running it through a pasta machine or rolling it out by hand.
8 – Set your pasta machine to 2, so the dough will easily pass through, yet flatten out on the first time through. Reset the dial to 5 and send the flattened pieces through again, catching the sheets with your hand as it comes through the pasta machine and pulling it forward. The dough will be very fragile.
9 – Lay your pasta strips on a lightly floured surface.
Assembly Preparation:

* Starting half an inch form the end of a pasta strip place half a tablespoon of filling (or desired amount). Continue down the sheet every inch on half of the pasta sheets.
* Brush the egg whites between the sausage fillings.
* Place another sheet on top of the sausage-covered sheets and press down in between the fillings.
* Cut in between the fillings with a knife and seal the edges together with a fork. *At this point you can cover the ravioli’s, refrigerate and cook at a later time.
* Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt as the water starts to bubble (it’s an Italian thing).
* Drop Ravioli’s into the pot, adding only as many as the pot will hold without crowding them. I did about 10 at a time. Boil for two minutes and remove with slotted spoon and place on a platter. Repeat until finished.
* To Serve: Place 4 to 5 Ravioli’s on each plate, and drizzle with Sage Butter. Garnish with fried sage leaves, slivers of cheese, and lemon.

* Sage Butter: In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 – stick salted butter and 2 small bundles of fresh sage leaves or about 1/3 cup fresh sage leaves. Allow butter and leaves to simmer, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat if needed. Remove butter from heat until needed. Remove leaves and drizzle over the pasta.
