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. *A personal note on my introduction to Texas style chili can be found below recipe.

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.

*My introduction to “RED”: On a trip headed south for a little winter quail hunting, we made a stop in San Antonio, at the Pearl restaurant. Listed on the menu was a bowl of “Red”. The waiter proudly informed us that it was real authentic Texas Chili, that it was all meat with no beans, and that the chef had just perfected their recipe. We ordered a cup to share – it was delicious. I was curious about the history of this famous Texas dish, so I did a little research.

As the waiter stated, the recipes I found for Texas chili were bean-less and loaded with onions and chilies. I learned a few other interesting facts including, that the chili pepper was not native to this continent. A Spaniard named Don Juan de Onate first brought chili peppers into New Mexico in 1598. They soon after became a staple throughout the southwest. It was later on around 1723, when Canary Island transplants had settled in San Antonio that the meat dish first became known. It was a replication from their homeland, made with local peppers, onions, garlic, and spices. This became know as a bowl of “Red”. Red chili soon became a favorite of the cowboys on the trail, with the camp cook using beef or buffalo. And, according to Lyndon Baines Johnson, “Chili concocted outside of Texas is usually a weak, apologetic imitation of the real thing.” I’m not so sure about that….

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I cooked up some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, lightly fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, toasted a slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea for Breakfast. Chilly morning out there today, 34 degrees! Partly cloudy and a high of 55 degrees. After Breakfast I headed out to Meijer for a few items. On the way back home I stopped by the ATM and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Back home got out the leaf blower and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 


I started by getting a skillet and spraying it with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray and heating it on medium heat. For the Bacon I’m using al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon. It fries up perfect with an excellent taste. I buy it at Meijer, it’s the only store I’ve found to carry it. I need to 2 slices but fried up 5 slices. Always remember when frying Bacon use Bacon Math. Just decide how many slices you’ll need and double it or so. 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, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet, on medium heat, that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick 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 a slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar with about 1 minute of cook time left. Topped with the Chicken Bacon and served the Burger on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun. The Burger was juicy and delicious, as all the Wild Idea Burgers are. Just love a good Burger, Buffalo Burger!

 

 


For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I really love this Cheese, excellent taste and it melts up perfectly on Burgers or Grilled Sandwiches!

 

 

 

 

 

 


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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese

Today’s Menu: Surf and Turf – Stuffed Clams, 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf), and Baked Potato

 

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. I also heated up a couple of Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. A big change in our weather. We’ve been in the 80’s and 90’s the past week or so. It was 40 degrees this morning and a high of 60 for the day. Big change! Had a lot of leaves all over the place!. Got the cart out of the shed along the rake and leaf blower. I was on yard duty most of the afternoon. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Surf and Turf – Stuffed Clams, 5 oz. Buffalo Petite Top Sirloin Steak (Turf), and Baked Potato.

 

 


I purchased The Stuffed Clams from the Seafood Department at Kroger. They are Matlaw Stuffed Clams (Brand) that they carry in the Seafood Case. We have these every so often and love having them! For the Stuffed Clams I preheated the oven on 425 degrees. Lined a small baking sheet with foil and placed the Clams on it. I sprinkled some Sea Salt on them and a drizzle of Lemon Juice. When the oven was ready I baked the Clams until heated through, about 25 minutes. Meaty and seasoned just right, with a side of Louisiana Remoulade Sauce. It’s the perfect dip for all Seafood.

 

For the Turf part I’ll be using 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 a small Cast Iron Skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was heated I added my Buffalo Sirloin, I cooked it 4 1/2 minutes per side 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.

 

 

I also 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 a Surf and Turf Meal! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with a Coke Zero to drink.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Steak Au Poivre

October 10, 2018 at 5:03 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | 3 Comments
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Steak Au Poivre. This week’s recipe uses the Wild Idea 5 oz. Top Sirloin Steaks. You can find this recipe along with all the other delicious and healthy recipes at the Wild Idea Buffalo website, plus you can also purchase any of the Wild Idea Products. http://wildideabuffalo.com/

Steak Au Poivre

This classic is timeless in taste and in elegance, and perhaps one of the all time greatest preparations that ever happened to a steak. Any fine cut steak will work, but my cooking time in this recipe is based on Wild Idea Buffalo’s 5 oz. Top Sirloin. Adjust your cooking time based on the size of your steak. I also use more cognac than broth as I prefer the richness and the aromas of the cognac, this too can be adjusted to your liking.

Ingredients:
2 – 5 oz. Top Sirloin Steaks (or other fine cut steaks)Steak Au Poivre
2 – tablespoons peppercorns, crushed
2 – tablespoons unsalted butter
½ – cup cognac
1/3 – cup buffalo broth or organic beef broth
3 – tablespoons cream
salt

Preparation:
1) Rinse steaks and pat dry.
2) Place peppercorns on a small plate and press the steaks into the peppercorns on both sides. Cover and set aside for one hour at room temperature.
3) Preheat the oven to 220°.
4) In a heavy saucepan or skillet over medium high heat, melt 1 tablespoon of the butter. Add the steaks immediately and sear each side for two minutes.
5) Using a tong, before removing the steaks from the pan, pick the steaks up one at a time and carefully sear the sides of the steak, while holding the steak with the tongs. About one minute per steak.
6) Remove the pan from the heat and transfer the seared steaks onto an ovenproof plate and cover with foil. Place the steaks in the preheated oven and shut the oven off.
7) Return the pan to medium high heat and melt the remaining tablespoon of butter and any remaining peppercorns from the plate. Do not let the butter brown.
8) Add the cognac in two batches to keep flame reasonable. The pan will ignite impressively, but then will quickly subside. Keep the pan lid close at hand to subdue should you need, or remove the pan from the heat and add the cognac to eliminate any flare-ups. Allow the cognac to reduce down to about half, stirring occasionalWild Idealy to scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan.
9) Stir in the broth and continue to cook, reducing down to ¼ cup, or until sauce starts to thicken.
10) Whisk in the cream and a pinch of salt and allow the cream to slightly caramelize to a rich cognac color, whisking occasionally. This will take about 3 minutes. Remove sauce from heat.
11) To serve, place the steaks on plates and sprinkle with salt. Spoon the sauce over the steaks. Accompany with any kind of potatoes and vegetable of your liking.

Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Beans

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Beans

 

 

 

I picked up some Glier’s Turkey Goetta at Kroger the other day. I hadn’t had Goetta in a while and was really looking forward to having some! So for Breakfast this morning I sliced off a couple of patties for the Goetta and I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns and toasted a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. As always the Goetta was incredible! It fries up so good and the Turkey Goetta I use has fewer calories and carbs than the regular Goetta. Love this stuff! Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another Summer like day out there today. Mostly sunny, 90 degrees, and humid. Cleaned the house, dusted and ran the sweeper. Then did some work outside, getting a bit humid to do a lot. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Beans.

 


I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the always tender Wild Idea Buffalo Terris Major Steak. I started by brushing it lightly with Extra Light Olive Oil and then Seasoning it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Grinder Peppercorn Medley. I had the Buffalo Terres Major Fillet Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Green Beans.

 

 

 

 


To prepare it I’m using a Cast iron Skillet that I sprayed with Pam Cooking Spray and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat and also turned the oven on to 400 degrees. With the Steak Seasoned and Skillet heated i added the Steak to the Cast Iron. Cooked it about 1 1/2 minutes a side and then put into the oven to finish. That’s a reason I love using Cast Iron Skillets, from the stove to the oven! I want to get it to 145 degree internal temperature. Then I pulled it out of the oven and let it set for 5 minutes, to finish cooking and let that delicious juice return to the Steak. Came out a perfect medium rare, moist and delicious!

 


For a side dish I prepared some Roasted Butternut Squash, easy recipe for some delicious Butternut Squash! I purchased 1 small package of Diced Butternut Squash at Kroger. They sell packages of it that they dice up. This is a lot easier than peeling and seeding one yourself, especially if you don’t have a good knife to cut it. I’ll need; 1 package of Diced Butternut Squash, Walnut Pieces, 1 tablespoon Extra Light Olive Oil, 1 1/2 teaspoons McCormick Grinder Sea Salt, and 1 teaspoon McCormick Grinder Peppercorn Medley.

 

 


To prepare it; Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Place the Squash on a sheet pan and drizzle with the Olive Oil, Salt, and Peppercorn and toss well. Arrange the squash in one layer and roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the Squash is tender, turning once with a spatula. And done, very easy to prepare. With the small amount of Seasoning and Olive Oil, it really brings out the flavor of Butternut Squash! The Walnuts work perfect with the Squash.

 

 

 


For a side I heated up the leftover Del Monte Cut Green Beans leftover from last night’s meal. Just put them in a bowl and heated them up in the microwave, doesn’t get much easier than that! Love them Green Beans! Then I also baked a loaf of Bakehouse Garlic Loaf Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Fillet

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.

PRAIRIE HARVEST GREEN CHILI STEW
The flavors of the prairie enhanced with roasted green chilies of the Southwest make for a great pot of stew. Roasted chilies are one of the best smells on the planet, so when available, I like to roast my own in the fall. If you have access to fresh and would like to roast your own, increase your green chili weight to about 4.5 pounds, and about 1.5 pounds for the red peppers. Roast chilies and peppers over a hot grill until blistered. Place in paper bag and allow to cool. Remove skin, scrape insides clean, and follow recipe below. (Makes 8 hearty entree portions, as seconds will be requested.)

Ingredients:
2 – pounds Stew Meat
1 – pound pheasant, grouse or chicken breast, cut into cubes
2 – tablespoons butter
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – onion, diced
2 – tablespoons garlic, chopped
2 – tablespoons cumin
2 – tablespoons chili powder
2 – tablespoons coriander
1 – teaspoon cayenne
2 – teaspoons salt
1 – tablespoon black pepper
3 – pounds *Hatch frozen or canned, roasted & peeled green chilies, diced or flash processed
1 – 15.5 ounce jar roasted red bell peppers, diced or flash processed
2 – quarts organic chicken or vegetable stock
¼ – cup arrow root
or corn starch
½ – cup water
2 – 10 ounce cans Rotel diced tomatoes, with lime juice and cilantro
1/3 – cup cilantro chopped
garnish options – sour cream and additional cilantro

Preparation:
1) Rinse stew meat in colander and pat dry with a paper towel.
2) In heavy stew pot, over medium high heat, heat butter and oil.
3) Add buffalo, fowl, onions and seasonings, stirring occasionally until meat is browned & onions are tender.
4) Add roasted green chilies and peppers to stew pot and stir to incorporate.
5) Add stock and bring to a boil.
6) Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for half an hour or until meat is tender.
7) Uncover and continue to simmer for an additional half hour.
8) Mix arrowroot and water together. Increase heat and bring to a boil, slowly whisking in arrowroot mixture.
9) Stir in diced tomatoes and cilantro.
10) Ladle stew in bowls and garnish as desired. Serve with grilled cheese Quesadillas.

*Hatch Green Chilies, are the best, so if available choose those. If using canned or frozen Hatch chilies, I use about 2.5 pounds of the mild chilies and a half pound of the hot. This gives the stew just the right amount of spiciness for our palate, adjust to your own.

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

 

 

No Breakfast this morning, but had Brunch. Mom slept late and I went and got us both Panera Breakfast Sandwiches. I also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Beautiful Fall day out there today! Sunny and a high of 68 degrees. Got the leaf blower out and cleaned off the deck and driveway areas. Then got the cart out of the shed and got some yard work done then when done took a spin around the neighborhood. 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, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers as usual. Their meaty, juicy and just flat out delicious! Preheated up a small skillet that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick 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 a slice of Kraft Deluxe Sharp Cheddar Cheese, 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. I love a good Buffalo Burger!

 

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/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Peach Snapple to drink.

 

 

 

 

 


Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers

Prepare for a whole new level of burger. Conveniently pre-made into one-third pound patties that are ever so grillable. Dinner ready. Each pack is 1 pound with 3 – 1/3 Lb patties.

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – JILL’S FAVORITE BUFFALO BURGERS. Nothing like a good Burger. Especially when it’s a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger! The recipe uses Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo. I switched over to using Buffalo Meat over Beef after I was diagnosed with Diabetes 2. Not only is Buffalo healthier than Beef but its so much more delicious. If you’ve never tried Buffalo it’s time! You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo at the Wild Idea Buffalo website.

JILL’S FAVORITE BUFFALO BURGERS
This recipe adds a little extra savoriness to the 100% grass-fed goodness!

Ingredients:
(serves 6 to 8)
2 – pounds Wild Idea Premium Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil

1/2 – teaspoon mustard

1 – teaspoon ketchup

1 – teaspoon thyme

2 – teaspoon salt & pepper

Preparation:
1. Mix all ingredients, but Buffalo together.
2. Add Buffalo & mix thoroughly with hands. Pat into 6 patties.
3. Place in refrigerator to firm up burgers.
4. Grill over high heat for 3 minutes each side for Medium Rare. Dan & I like to drizzle a little more olive oil over and sear for another half minute per each side for medium. This give the burgers a bit of a crust on the outside.
5. Remove from the grill, and sprinkle with a high quality finishing salt. Allow to rest for a couple of minutes before serving.

SLOPPY JOE’S WITH SWEET CORN
This ground BBQ concoction has been called many things, including; Steam Burger, Tavern Sandwich, Spoon Burgers, Barbeque Sandwich and of course Sloppy Joe’s. Whatever you call it, they are delicious!
This hearty sandwich was a childhood favorite for simple suppers and was a huge treat for tailgate events (and still is)! My following recipe is a modified New York Times version, that one of our customers recommended. I modified it based on my own taste, as well as what I had on hand. Garnish it with homemade pickles and flash sautéed fresh sweet corn, for grown-up goodness, that kids will love too. *For best flavor profile, make a day ahead. Leftovers were even better!

Ingredients:
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – large onion, diced
1 – 1 lb. packages Wild Idea Ground Buffalo
2 – cloves garlic, minced
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon chili powder
1 – teaspoon cumin
½ – teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ – teaspoon cloves
½ – cup water
2 – cups tomato sauce
½ – cup ketchup
2 – tablespoons Worcestershire
1 – tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 – tablespoons Maple Syrup
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, or other citrus

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onions. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly caramelized. About 10 minutes.
2 – Increase your heat to medium high and crumble in the ground buffalo, and the garlic and dry spices. Cook the meat until browned, stirring occasionally, breaking up the larger pieces up with your spoon.
3 – Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, mustard and syrup and stir to incorporate. Reduce your heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.
4 – Add the fresh squeezed lemon and season to taste.
5 – Serve on toasted buns and top with pickles and fresh sautéed sweet corn with green onions. So good!
