Today’s Menu: Cast Iron Seared Buffalo Flat Iron Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Seasoned Blackeye Peas

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I fried up a few slices of Kahn’s Bologna, used a 1/2 slice of Kraft Deli Style Sharp Cheddar Cheese, and toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. And I had myself a Breakfast Sandwich. Also had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Sunny and 82 degrees out today! That’s right, I said Sunny! They say no rain until sometime Saturday, I hope they are right. This area needs to dry out from all the rain. Got the cart out of the shed and did some yard work most of the day. Feels so good to be outside with sunshine! Yes, I had plenty of sunscreen on! So for Dinner tonight I had a Cast Iron Seared Buffalo Flat Iron Steak w/ Roasted Butternut Squash and Seasoned Blackeye Peas.

 

 

 

 

I had a Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 oz. Flat Iron Steak in the freezer, I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. I’m preparing it using a Cast Iron Skillet, my favorite way to prepare these Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks! I love the Cast Irons, from the stove straight into the oven! I love these Flat Iron Steaks, as I do all of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products. These are hand cut with no fat and so easy to prepare. I’ll need Extra Light Olive Oil, Dried Thyme, and McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I first rubbed the Steak with Olive Oil and then Seasoned it with the Thyme, Sea Salt, and Peppercorn Medley. I then cut the Steak in half, 1/2 for Dinner and the other 1/2 for Lunch tomorrow. Next I turned the oven on to 400°F.

 

 

 

 

 

I got my Cast Iron out and added a 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When heated up I added the Flat Iron Steak to the skillet. I seared for 1 minute and flipped it over and cooked it another 2 minutes. Removed it from the heat and let it rest for 5 minutes. And Wow what a Steak! So juicy and tender, with that Wild Idea Buffalo taste that’s like no other. All their Buffalo are raised on the free range of the Great Plains grasslands. So good! I also Sauteed some Baby Bella Mushrooms. Sauteed in Extra Light Olive Oil and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. seasoned with Sea Salt, Pepper, Dried Thyme, and Parsley.

 

 

 

 

 

For one side dish I prepared 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 tablespoons 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, add the Walnut Pieces, 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. I really love Butternut Squash! Then I also baked a loaf of La Baguetterie Roasted Garlic Oval Bread. For Dessert later Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Coll Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

Then for another side dish I heated up a can of Margaret Holmes Seasoned Blackeye Peas. If you are a fan of Blackeye Peas, like myself, you’ll love these! Just emptied the Peas into a small saucepan, covered, and heated to a boil. Reduced the heat, stirred. Simmer until ready to serve. Nice size Peas and Seasoned just right! I also baked a loaf of Italian Bread that I had purchased at Walmart Bakery. For Dessert later tonight a few slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

We carefully fillet our flat irons from the upper shoulder blade of the primal chuck. The flat iron has recently become a favorite on restaurant menus due to its high quality and flavor. The flat iron steak is what many chefs consider a best-kept secret of steak cuts. 8 oz.

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
3 – cloves garlic
¼ – cup brown sugar
2 – tablespoons jerk seasoning
Jerk Seasoning

6 ½ tsp. Onion Powder
3 ½ tsp. Salt
2 tsp. Brown Sugar
¾ tsp. Nutmeg
¾ tsp. Crushed Red Pepper
¾ tsp. Ginger
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: Buffalo Bone-In Ribeye Steak w/ Baked Potato and Roasted Asparagus

 

 

For Breakfast I had a Poached Egg, a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Big change in the weather, is was down right Chilly out yesterday but today its sunny and 76 degrees out. After Breakfast went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at McDonald’s. After Lunch I went with a High School friend of mine and we went to the Hospital to spend some time with another old classmate of ours. He had a heart transplant last week. He’s doing real good with all the tests coming back positive! So good news there. For Dinner tonight I prepared a Buffalo Bone-In Ribeye Steak w/ Baked Potato and Roasted Asparagus.

 

 

 

I had purchased a couple of Wild Idea Buffalo – Bone – In Ribeye Steaks (Cowboy Steak) 16oz. while they were on sale a couple of weeks ago. I had them in the freezer and I took one out and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it I’ll need; Extra Light Olive Oil, McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and a Grinder of Peppercorn Medley and Dried Rosemary.

 

 

 

 

 

I first turned the oven to 400 degrees. Next I got the large Cat Iron Skillet out and added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil to it. Heated the Skillet on medium. As that was heating up I Seasoned the Ribeye with a rub of the Extra Light Olive Oil, seasoned with the Sea Salt and peppercorn Medley Grinders, and the Dried Rosemary. Let it sit until the Skillet was fully heated. When ready I added the Ribeye. I cooked it 2 minutes per side and then into the oven. I cooked it for 4 minutes and then turned it over to the other side and continued to cook it for minutes. Checked it with the Meat thermometer and had it at 147 degrees, perfect temperature.

 

 

 

 

The Ribeye came out a perfect medium rare! This has to be Big Boss of Ribeyes! Love cooking Steak with Bone – In. The Steak is so tender and moist, it cuts so easy! Wild Idea Buffalo as always just incredible! The Steak was 16 oz. so plenty of leftovers for Breakfast or Lunch tomorrow!

 

 

 

 

 

 

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

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For another side I prepared Roasted Asparagus. I love pairing Asparagus with Potatoes! To prepare it I’ll need; 1 bunch of Purple Asparagus (fibrous bases removed), 1 Tablespoon of CrumbledBacon or Bacon Bits, Ground Garlic Salt, Sea Salt, Freshly Ground Black Pepper, and 1 tbsp Extra Light Olive Oil. To prepare it is easy; Preheat the oven to 400F. Place the Asparagus in a baking tray sheet. Add the Bacon, Garlic Salt, Salt, Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil and toss to coat. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool a couple of minutes and serve! Comes out tender and delicious!

 

 

 

 

 

At the last minute I also made some Fried Cornbread Cakes (Johnny Cakes). To prepare them all you’ll need is: Pam w/ Olive Oil Non – Stick Spray, 1/4 cup Extra Light Virgin Olive Oil, 1 3/4 cups Low Fat Buttermilk, and 2 cups Martha White Self Rising Enriched White Corn Meal Mix. Just mix all your ingredients in a large bowl. Spray your Pam on a Flat Top Griddle or large Skillet and preheat on medium low, I use the Flat Top Griddle. When the Griddle is heated add your batter. You can make the Cakes any size you want from half-dollar size to regular pancake size cakes. After the bottom side turns golden brown flip over and let the other side get golden brown. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding Cup.

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

 

 

To start the this day off I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. Next I lightly fried up a few slices of Boar’s Head Sweet Slice Ham and added a 1/2 slice of Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar. Served it on the English Muffin and I have my Breakfast Sandwich. I also and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 75 degrees, humid, with a passing shower out today. Plus the Pollen and Mold count is high again! So I wasn’t outside very much. Did a few chores inside today. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries tonight.

 

 

 

 

 

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. To prepare it I fired up the Grill! I first rubbed the Burger with some Extra Light Olive Oil on both sides then 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 a couple of Brats 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 and done! 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!

Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup. For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free dark Chocolate Pudding.

For Breakfast it was Skillet Potatoes and Ham for Breakfast. I used 1 package of Simply Potatoes Steakhouse Seasoned Diced Potatoes and a package of Meijer Diced Ham to prepare it. Just cook the Potatoes according to the package instructions and with about 5 minutes of cooking time left add the Diced Ham. I topped it with a sprinkle of Sargento Reduced Fat Cheddar/Jack Cheese. Just love this skillet meal! Cloudy and 84 degrees out there today. I had to have Mom at the Dermatologist at 11:30. Just a follow up to the precancer cells that were on her face. Plus she’s still moving slow from the fall she took on Monday. We stopped by Meijer after the Doctor visit, Meijer just a 1/2 mile down the road. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

Seasoned with, Organic Apple Cider, Organic Lime Juice, Onion Powder, Cumin, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Chili Powder, Paprika, Garlic Powder, Oregano, Cayenne Pepper. And that’s why it’s so flavorful! Delicious Pulled Buffalo that you just heat and serve.

 

 

 

 

 

I used a small sauce pan that I sprayed with Pam Non Stick Cooking Spray. Added the Buffalo and heated it on medium low until heated through. I served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Hamburger Bun and topped it with some Jack Daniel’s Honey Smokehouse BBQ Sauce. What a sandwich, just incredible flavor! The Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast is so flavorful and tender. It just has such a deep and rich flavor to it.

 

 

 

 

 

For my Fries I’m using Ore Ida Crinkle Cut 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, excellent Shoestring Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs.

Hey everyone, usually on Wednesday’s I have a recipe from Wild Idea Buffalo to share with all of you. But today instead of a recipe I’m going to pass along some info and back ground on Wild Idea Buffalo. I’ve been ordering my Buffalo from Wild Idea for a few years now. I’ve tried other Buffalo or Bison but none can really compare to best tasting Buffalo there is that I have found! So here’s a little history and info on Wild Idea Buffalo! Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One!

 

 

 

 

The 34,000-acre Cheyenne River Ranch, home to Dan and Jill O’Brien, winds along the Cheyenne River and borders the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands and Pine Ridge Reservation. The 32,000-acre Conata Basin Ranch, managed by Doug Albertson, sits on the edge of the Conata Basin, with beautiful vistas of the Badlands National Park.

MISSION
“I have dedicated my life to preserving and restoring the Great Plains grasslands. These same principles are the foundation of Wild Idea Buffalo Company. By returning the bison to their native homeland, we’re not only re-wilding a threatened ecosystem, we are keeping prairies intact, with carbon stored safely underground, and producing the healthiest red meat on the planet.”

Dan O’Brien
Buffalo Rancher / Carbon Cowboy

BEYOND ORGANIC
Raising buffalo humanely has allowed us to supply conscientious consumers with the delicious, healthy, 100% grass-fed meat they demand. We have left no stone unturned in our effort to “go beyond organic.” We treat our buffalo and their prairie ecosystem with the respect and care that both deserve. Our buffalo are 100% grass-fed/grass-finished, 100% antibiotic, hormone & pesticide free, and 100% humanely harvested. Our model of raising buffalo leads to a superior source of protein that’s good for you, the environment, and the animals.

SUSTAINABLY RAISED
Our bison roam over large landscapes like their ancestors did, eating nothing but the grass beneath their feet. Their grazing patterns naturally regenerate the prairie, enhancing the level of biodiversity. The nutrient-dense prairie grasses they eat are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, producing a delicious, healthy red meat that that the body needs for optimum health. Unlike most buffalo on the market today, Wild Idea Buffalo are never feedlot confined or finished on GMO grains.

We have left no stone unturned in our effort to “go beyond organic.” We treat our buffalo and their prairie ecosystem with the respect and care that both deserve.

MEET OUR FOUNDERS
Dan & Jill O’Brien created Wild Idea Buffalo Company in 1997 with the mission of preserving the Great Plains by returning buffalo to their native habitat. Many years have passed since their original “wild idea” that began the company, and today Wild Idea Buffalo Company, LLC continues to grow through our customers’ conscientious decisions about the quality and stewardship of the food they purchase.

BEST TASTING MEAT

The incredible flavor of Wild Idea Buffalo meat is the result of the animals’ lives being lived more naturally and without unnecessary human interference. Its clean, rich, slightly sweet taste has subtle notes of grass, sage, and we swear – sunshine. Our humane prairie harvests ensure that our buffalo are not exposed to any undue stress that would spoil the flavor of this natural meat. Our buffalo are given respect, dignity, and care throughout their lives. Our buffalo tastes better because they are raised better!

THE BEST MEAT FOR YOU
Wild Idea meat is lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than chicken or fish. It’s higher in protein than beef. Our 100% native grass-fed meat delivers 3.5x more antioxidant omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed buffalo. Try the red meat that’s good for you!

BUFFALO RESTORE THE PRAIRIE
Prairie restoration is vital to our mission. Our land and animal management practices are as close to nature’s intentions as possible. By giving the buffalo room to roam, the Great Plains prairie is brought back to health. Grasses, forbs, and flowers flourish, providing a sustainable ecosystem for all life. Our vision of sweeping landscapes where the buffalo roam continues to grow, and we are now affiliated with other like-minded ranchers, including Native American ranchers and Nature Conservancy herds, positively impacting over 150,000 acres of grasslands.

Today’s Menu: 8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I 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. Outside had a shower early this morning and one later on in the afternoon. Partly cloudy, humid, and 89 degrees. our yard is like a magnet for leaves and limbs. I had to get the rake out and rake the front and side yards. Way to early in the year to be raking! Pretty quiet Memorial Day Weekend around here. My neighbor across the street was out mowing his lawn and doing some raking also. We combined the piles of leaves and gave each other a hand in picking them up. I told you it was quiet out! For Dinner tonight I prepared a 8 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast Light.

 

 

 

 

I just got my order in from Wild Idea Buffalo. It came in a couple of days ago. I had a Buffalo Burger yesterday and having the Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz. for Dinner tonight. I purchased the Buffalo Burger Patties, Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz., a 8 oz. Flat Iron Buffalo Steak, (2) Fine Cut Sirloin Steak 6 oz., (2) Petite Top Sirloin Steak 5 oz., and a Teres Major Filet – Teres Major Filet 6 oz. There’s some good eating ahead!

 

 

 

 

 

I prepared one of the Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Top Sirloin Steak tonight. I had it in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. So easy to prepare these. I start by rubbing a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on it and then season it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I pan fried in a medium size skillet. I added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan and preheated the skillet on medium heat, added the Steak and fried it about 4 minutes per side. I topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms that I prepared. Love the combo of Steak and Mushrooms! Came out a perfect Medium Rare, nice char on the outside with a pink moist and juicy center. You just can’t beat the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks.The Steak was nice size so with the leftovers I’ll have Steak and Eggs in the morning for Breakfast. Topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love them Potatoes! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. I think a Buffalo Steak along with a Baked Potato and Texas Toast has to be my favorite Steak Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

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

 

 

To start the this day off I prepared Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. As that was cooking I toasted a Thomas Light English Muffin. I cut the Sausage Link in half and then split it down the center and served it on the English Muffin. Topped the Sausage with a bit of French’s Spicy Brown Mustard. I also and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 85 degrees, cloudy with a passing shower out today. As most Memorial Day Weekend’s, its humid, hot, and rainy! Although last year’s was pretty nice. After Lunch we went out to the Cemetery along with my Aunt and we put flowers and cleaned off the family’s tombstone’s. My Grand Parents, Brother, Aunt, Uncles, and Cousins are all buried in the same Cemetery. It doesn’t seem possible that Dad will have been gone a year ago next month. We sure miss him. So for Dinner tonight I prepared a Grilled Buffalo Cheese Burger and Baked Fries tonight.

 

 

 

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. 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 Mett 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 and done! 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!

 

 

 

To go with my Burger I prepared some Ore Ida Golden Crinkle Cut French Fries for us. 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 later a Breyer’s 100 Calorie Cup of Vanilla Ice cream.

Boar’s Head Vermont Cheddar Cheese

Crafted in the Green Mountain state with whole milk sourced from regional family dairy farms, this classic cheese has a mild flavor and creamy texture. Vermont Cheddar skewered with seedless grapes and Boar’s Head Ovengold Turkey makes an elegant kabob-style appetizer.

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
