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…………………………………….

Grilled Buffalo Steak with Radicchio-Beet Skewers
Richly flavored buffalo steak is complemented by the bite of radicchio, mellowed a bit by the grill, the earthy-sweet beets and a creamy goat cheese dressing. Buffalo is a tasty option but, because it’s so lean, is best cooked rare to medium-rare………………………………….

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………………………………………

Wild Idea Buffalo – All about……

I normally have a recipe or featuring one of their Cuts of Buffalo, but this week its on their Mission Statement and a little about Wild Idea Buffalo. There’s a couple of links below you can clck to read further about Wild Idea Buffalo. Enjoy!

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, hormone/antibiotic/pesticide free, 100% free roaming, and always humanely harvested. Our model of raising buffalo leads to a superior source of protein that is healthier for the consumer, the environment, and the animal…….

SUSTAINABLY RAISED
Our bison graze like their ancestors did, eating nothing but the grass beneath their feet. The nutrient-dense grasses they eat produce a delicious, healthy red meat that is rich in the omega-3 fatty acids 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 corn. Additionally, our buffalo restore the wild land they graze to a greater level of biodiversity….

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: Sharp Cheddar Mushroom Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries

Another warm and muggy day out. If you have allergies, it’s bad around here. The tree pollen is really high and I could tell it this afternoon when I was out. I had to take my Mom to the Dermatologist today. We thought she had Shingles again but it turned out to be Poison Ivy. Which isn’t good but sure better than Shingles! They put her on 2 Prescriptions and a homemade solution and said it would eventually clear up. For dinner tonight it’s a Sharp Cheddar Mushroom Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

 

As usual I used my favorite Buffalo, the Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3-Lb Buffalo Burgers. You could put a plate of these in front of me and I would be like Wimpy, of Pop Eye fame. Love these Burgers. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. I topped it with a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese and Sauteed Mushrooms, served it on an Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun.

 

 

 
Then for a side dish I baked up some Ore Ida Simply Cracked Black Pepper and Sea Salt Country Style Fries, served these with a side of Hunt’s Ketchup for dipping. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Vanilla Bean Frozen Yogurt.

Turkey Bacon Cheese Buffalo Burger 009

 
The temperature started dropping early this morning and still haven’t stopped. Along with the wind chill its below zero, with even colder temps by in the morning (-10). A lot of schools in the area have cancelled or at least the ones that don’t have full bus service. I’ll sure be glad to see Spring Weather get here! For dinner tonight it’s a Turkey Bacon and Cheddar Buffalo Burger w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I prepared a Wild Idea Buffalo 1/3 lb. Burger. I seasoned it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn. I then pan fried it in Canola Oil about 3 1/2 minutes per side. Buffalo gets done rather quickly due to it’s so lean. I topped it with a slice of Jennie – O Turkey Bacon and a slice of Sargento Ultra Thin Sharp Cheddar Cheese and served it on a Aunt Millie’s Reduced Calorie Whole Grain Bun. For dessert later a Weight Watchers Chocolate Swirl Ice Cream Cone.
