Today’s Menu: Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s light Whole Grain Bread, prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Mostly cloudy out all day and a high of 36 degrees. After Breakfast I went to the Kroger up the road for a few things and stopped by McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. We are starting to have a lot of trouble with Dad. We would like to keep him here at home but as his dementia gets worse the harder it is to take care of him. Just hoping and praying for the best. Later on did some house cleaning and straightened up the Pantry. For Dinner tonight its a Buffalo Terres Major Filet Steak w/ Sliced Potatoes and Mixed Chili Beans.

 

I prepared one of my favorite cuts of Steak, the 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.

 

 

 

 

 

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 one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. Just empty the can into a small sauce pan to a boil. Turn the heat down to a simmer until heated. Easy and delicious Potato Side Dish.

 

 

 

 

 

For a second side I prepared a can of Bush’s Mixed Chili Beans – Kidney and Pinto Beans. Just heat the Beans in a small sauce pan to a boil and then reduce the heat to a simmer. Cooked until heated. Then I also baked a loaf of Bakehouse Multi Grain Bread. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding.

 

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Terres Major Filet

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.

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

 

 

To start my Sunday morning off I Scrambled a couple of Eggs, fried a couple of slices of al fresco Uncured Chicken Bacon, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Good start to a dreary Sunday Morning. Outside it’s a mix of light rain and snow and like this most of the day. We need some sunshine above freezing weather! Gave Mom a hand with a couple of loads of laundry. After Lunch I laid back down for a while. I’ve had a Sinus Headache since yesterday. Not much else going on. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Chicken Bacon and Vermont Cheddar Cheese Buffalo Buff Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

I started by grabbing 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. If you’ve never tried this Bacon you need to give it a try. 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 Dinner tonight I’m having a Wild Idea Buffalo Burger but not my normal 1/3 lb. Buffalo Burger. I’m having the Wild Idea Buffalo Buff Burgers. I’ve these several times but usually I have them for Lunch. The Buff Burger is a 6 oz., seasoned, handcrafted Buffalo Burger.

 

 

 

 

 

Next I sprayed another skillet with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray, added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium low heat. I then fried it 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. I love buffalo or Bison if you prefer.

 

 

For the Cheese I used Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. I tried a sample of it at Kroger and really loved the taste. First time trying it. It melted perfectly and has an excellent Cheddar taste. I’ll have to buy some more of this.

 

 

 

 

 

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, while watching the Super Bowl, a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.
 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – Buff Burgers
Get your buff on with our premium, 95% lean, 100% grass-fed buffalo meat! We season the meat to perfection, handcraft each burger into a 6 oz. portion and then wrap them individually for your convenience and come in (you guessed it) a 6 – Pack!

Chili is so delicious and so many ways and ingredients to prepare it with. But using Ground Bison takes it to a new level! You’ll be using Wild Idea Buffalo Premium Ground Buffalo along with Spices (many spices), Stewed Tomatoes, Golden Pepperoncini, and 4 different types of Beans (butter beans, black beans, kidney beans, and pinto beans).

So check the site out today. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

DAKOTA TACOS “INDIAN TACOS”
My secret ingredient in the preparation of the fry bread, is club soda, which makes the dough and bread lighter. I also use coconut oil, which has a good nutritional profile, and is great for deep frying. Be sure to fry at a high enough heat, 375° to limit oil absorption and to give the edges a nice crispiness. The slightly spicy, seasoned meat balances nicely with the creamy, Zesty Sour Cream Dressing.

Taco Ingredients:
1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meat
1 – small onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon olive oil
2 – teaspoons chili powder
2 – teaspoons cumin
1½ – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
1 – teaspoon smoked paprika
½ – teaspoon coriander
2 – cups lettuce leaves, or chopped lettuce
1 – cup grated cheddar cheese
Zesty Sour Cream Dressing, recipe below

Preparation:

1) Measure all spice ingredients, and set aside.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat the olive oil.

3) Add the chopped onion and crumble in the ground buffalo.

4) Sprinkle seasonings over the meat, and stir to incorporate, breaking up the meat into smaller pieces as you stir.

5) Cook until meat is browned, about 7 minutes. Cover, set aside, and re-heat when the fry bread is ready.

6) To assemble, place warm fry bread on plates, and top with the hot seasoned meat, lettuce, and cheese. Drizzle with the Zesty Sour Cream Dressing and enjoy!

 

Fry Bread *Recipe makes 4 fry bread servings, with 275 calories per each.
Ingredients:
2 – cups unbleached organic flour, plus a half cup more for handling and rolling out
2 – teaspoon baking soda
¼ – teaspoon salt
½ – cup 2% milk
½ cup club soda
3 – cups coconut oil
Preparation:

1) Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and sift to incorporate.

2) Add milk and soda and stir in until incorporated. The dough will be slightly sticky.

3) Flour hands and pat dough into a ball, place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 4 equal servings. Using floured hands press portions into a disk shape and roll out into about a six-inch diameter with a floured rolling pin.

4) In a 8 inch diameter saucepan, over medium high heat, heat coconut oil. Oil is at the right temperature when at 375°, or you can test by inserting a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil is ready if it bubbles up around the spoon.

5) Drop fry bread disk into oil carefully, one at a time, cooking about one minute each side or until golden. Place cooked fry breads on a paper bag or paper towels until ready to serve.

*Fry Bread is best served soon after cooking, or while still warm.

 

Zesty Sour Cream Dressing

Ingredients:
¾ – cup sour cream
2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
2 – tablespoons canned, roasted, peeled green chilies with juice, puréed
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional or to taste
salt to taste
Preparation: Mix all ingredients together and whisk to incorporate. Store in refrigerator until needed.

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

 

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I toasted 2 slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, Fried 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links, prepared a Sunnyside Up Egg, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. After some warmer temps it’s back down to 23 degrees this morning. Had a high of 35 degrees and cloudy out. After Breakfast I headed to McDonald’s and picked up Breakfast for Mom and Dad. Then headed back out to the local Kroger and stopped by the bank before heading home. They finally broke ground for the new Kroger about 2 miles up the road. The Kroger around here is an older and small Kroger and the new one is going to be one of their Super Stores. It should be nice when they get it built. 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. Just 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 Coke Zero 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.

BUFFALO PICADILLO
This recipe makes eating well super easy. A favorite Cuban and Spanish “comfort food” dish, that has many variations. I tried a couple, with a hybrid of the two in mind, which is exactly where I landed. Traditionally served with rice, but served on butternut squash spirals it is phenomenal! Adjust spices to your liking – but you are going to love this dish!

Ingredients: (serves 6)

1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon ground cumin1 – teaspoon oregano
½ – teaspoon cardamom
¼ – teaspoon paprika
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper
½ – teaspoon allspice
½ – teaspoon cinnamon
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon pepper
1 – green bell pepper, chopped
5 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – cup of white wine
2 – cups crushed tomatoes
2 – bay leaves
1 – cup of stuffed Spanish olives, cut in half
1 – cup of raisins
chopped cilantro
butternut squash spirals

Preparation:

1 – In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil. Add the onions and all of the dried spices. Stir to incorporate and sauté for about 5 minutes.
2 – Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and crumble in the ground buffalo. Using a spoon, break up the meat a bit more as it cooks. Cook for 5 minutes before adding the peppers (reserving ¼ of the chopped peppers to add later) and the garlic and stir to incorporate. Cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until meat is nicely browned.
3 – Add the wine, crushed tomatoes and bay leaves and stir to incorporate. Bring to full heat.
4 – Add the olives and the raisins, and stir to incorporate. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
5 – Remove cover and add remaining chopped bell peppers. Stir to incorporate and cook for 5 minutes.
6 – Serve over sautéed butternut squash spirals and garnish with chopped cilantro.
Note: I reserve some of the peppers, adding them toward the end, for texture and color, but it isn’t necessary.
