To flip or not to flip…..

How many times do you flip a steak on the grill? If you’re cooking steak on the grill, you most definitely should flip it about halfway through the cooking process. It’s typically recommend flipping your steak just once on the grill because it’s not getting direct heat on one side like it would on a pan.

Today’s Menu: Noodles, Buffalo Strips, Brown Mushroom Gravy and Italian Bread

 

To start my morning I Scrambled a couple of medium size Eggs, prepared some Simply Potatoes Hash Browns, heated up 2 Johnsonville Turkey Breakfast Sausage Links and had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Very good Breakfast! Another beautiful day out there! 82 degrees, sunny with a light breeze. Watered the front lawn and all the plants and my garden. My Tomato and Pepper Plants both are loaded! I should have plenty of both when ripe. I had everything done so I got the cart out of the shed and rode around enjoying the beautiful day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Noodles, Buffalo Strips, Brown Mushroom Gravy and Italian Bread.

 

For the noodles I used Meijer Extra Wide Yolk Free Pasta. Easy to prepare as all Pasta is. I heated a pot of water. Once boiling I salted the water and added the Pasta, stirring often. Boiled it for 10 minutes. Removed from the heat and drained the pasta. Set aside in a bowl as the Buffalo and Gravy both were ready.

 

As usual I used Wild Idea Buffalo Steak Strips. To prepare these I used a small Cast Iron Skillet. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray and added a tablespoon of Cooking Olive Oil. Heated it on medium heat. When the Skillet was ready I added my Steak Strips, seasoned them with Wild Idea Buffalo Omnivore Salt Seasoning. I cooked them for only 2 minutes a side, and done. These are just tender and delicious! Set aside until ready to use.

 

For the Gravy I’m using a small bottle of Heinz Mushroom Gravy. I’m also adding a small jar of Pennsylvania Dutchman Sliced Mushrooms, my favorite. I love Mushrooms! So as the Noodles and Buffalo Strips were cooking I got a small Saucepan. Sprayed it with Pam Non Stick Spray, heated it on medium low. Added the Heinz Gravy and drained jar of Sliced Mushrooms to the Gravy and stir until heated.

 

To put this Meal together I made a bed of the Noodles in a bowl. Topped it with some of the Buffalo Strips and topped that with Mushroom Gravy. Topped it all with a sprinkle of Parsley. It’s one delicious Dish! The Noodles, Buffalo and Mushroom Gravy work perfectly together. The Dish has 3 of my favorites Pasta, Buffalo and Mushroom Gravy! I also had a slice of Italian Bread. I had bought Italian Loaf Bread at Meijer. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet 1/2 and 1/2 Lemonade Iced Tea to drink.

Find healthy, delicious burger recipes including classic hamburgers, turkey burgers and chicken burgers. Healthier Recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Classic Hamburger
Slow-cooked onions add moisture and flavor to these lean beef burgers. A quick blend of mayonnaise, ketchup, relish and vinegar makes a perfect tangy, sweet and creamy “special sauce” for this burger. We love the dill relish here, but use sweet relish if you prefer it. Serve with sweet potato fries……

Grilled Bison-Mushroom Burgers
Adding smoky, umami-packed ground mushrooms to grilled burgers builds flavor and keeps things juicy while bumping up the patty size. This burger is super-tasty made with ground beef too, but we love bison as a sustainable alternative packed with rich flavor. Look for it in the meat section of well-stocked supermarkets……

Mushroom-Swiss Turkey Burgers
In this gluten-free turkey burger recipe, lean ground turkey stands in for ground beef, and portobello mushrooms produce a juicy, flavorful alternative to the traditional bun. Melted Swiss cheese, sliced tomato and arugula top off this delicious low-carb dinner!…..

Today’s Menu: BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries

 

 

For Breakfast I cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Another cold morning here, 9 degrees with a wind chill at 0 degrees! We had a high of 21 degrees but the winds kept it much colder. So another inside day here. I cleaned and straightened Mom’s big freezer. Then moved to the Pantry and did the same. Mom is feeling a lot better today, which is good! For Dinner tonight I prepared a BBQ Pulled Buffalo Chuck Roast Sandwich w/ Baked Crinkle Fries.

 

I’m using the Wild Idea Buffalo Pulled Chuck Roast. I had the package in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge to thaw overnight. The Pulled Chuck Roast is so tender and incredibly flavorful. It comes already cooked and seasoned, so just heat and serve! It’s 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 Live Carb Smart Hamburger Bun, the buns are only 50 calories and 2 net carbs per Bun! I 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. One of my favorites!

 

For my Fries I’m using Ore Ida Crinkle Cut Fries. Seasoned them with Salt and Pepper. Baked them at 425 degrees for 19 minutes. They are only 90 calories and 10 net carbs. Served them with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For Dessert/Snack later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Mango/Tea Snapple to drink.

Today’s Menu: Noodles, Buffalo Strips, Brown Mushroom Gravy and Italian Bread

 

To start my morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 15 degrees this morning with a wind chill at 9 degrees. For the day it was 21 degrees with a few snowflakes in the late afternoon. They had a few inches just south of us. Mom isn’t feeling good today so I took care of her. She started feeling better toward the evening. For Dinner tonight I prepared Noodles, Buffalo Strips, Brown Mushroom Gravy and Italian Bread.

 

For the noodles I used Meijer Extra Wide Yolk Free Pasta. Easy to prepare as all Pasta is. I heated a pot of water. Once boiling I salted the water and added the Pasta, stirring often. Boiled it for 10 minutes. Removed from the heat and drained the pasta. Set aside in a bowl as the Buffalo and Gravy both were ready.

Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

Today’s Menu: Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I had a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. 83 degrees, a bit humid, and sunny out today. Got the cart out and did some yard work. In the midst of removing a tree stump. Then I cleaned out the leaves from the flower beds. For Dinner tonight it’s one of our favorites, Chopped Bison Sirloin and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast.

 

For Dinner tonight it’s one of our favorites, SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak. SayersBrook no longer produces the Chopped Bison Sirloin. So I thought that was the end of them until I came across 3 packages at the bottom of the stand up freezer a while back. I sat a package of them in the fridge overnight to thaw. That’s 2 of 3 packages, 1 left. So to start I preheated the oven to 400 degrees. To prepare it I’ll need McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley, McCormick Crushed Rosemary, and McCormick Thyme Leaves (all seasoning to taste). I got the Cast Iron Skillet out to prepare it. I first sprayed it with a very light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and then added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heat it on medium heat. When the pan was heated I added the Chopped Steak. I cooked each side for 2 minutes. Then finish it in the oven, at 400 degrees for 7 minutes. It cooked up beautifully, perfect medium rare! Had a nice little char on the outside and moist and juicy inside. These are so tender you could slice them with a spoon and have an excellent taste to them. This might be all the SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak that we have left. They no longer make the Chopped Steak, very sad!

I topped the Chopped Steak with some A-1 Sauce Thick/Hardy. Also cooked up some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

I also 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. I also baked a slice of New York Bakery Texas Toast, One delicious meal tonight. The Chopped Steak, Potato, and Texas Toast just seem to work the best! For Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

SayersBrook Ranch Bison Chopped Sirloin Steak
If you like the flavor of the sirloin, love the Bison Burger but want to take it up a notch, then the Chopped Sirloin Steak is for you! 4 lbs (4 packages each with 2-8oz chopped sirloin steaks).
Great flavor of the sirloin but also extremely tender and juicy.

Grilled Bison-Mushroom Burgers
Adding smoky, umami-packed ground mushrooms to grilled burgers builds flavor and keeps things juicy while bumping up the patty size. This burger is super-tasty made with ground beef too, but we love bison as a sustainable alternative packed with rich flavor. Look for it in the meat section of well-stocked supermarkets……….

Buffalo and Black Bean Chili
In this healthy buffalo and black bean chili recipe, the buffalo is cooked with sweet red bell peppers and spiced with two types of chili powder, cocoa powder and espresso powder, making this chili mouthwatering and memorable. Ground buffalo, also known as ground bison, is a healthy alternative to ground beef because it’s naturally lower in fat and has a rich, delectable flavor. After all the ingredients are added to the pot, we like to slowly simmer our chili for close to an hour to develop the best flavor, but if you’re in a hurry, reduce the liquid by half and simmer for 20 to 25 minutes…………

Mexican Bison Stew
Mexican cooks are great at turning tough chunks of meat into delicious and tender stews. This one, which uses tougher cuts of bison, such as chuck or brisket, is flavored with chili powder, cumin and tequila. Serve with warm tortillas………….

Italian Buffalo Sausage and Mushroom 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. (Makes 3 medium or 6 small pizza)
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.
