3 – Pre-heat oven to 400°.
4 – Shred your cheese and prep all of your vegetables.
5 – On 4 oven safe plates, arrange a layer of corn chips. Top chips with 1/3 of meat, and other ingredients divided between the 4 plates. Repeat layer two more times.
6 – Place prepared nachos in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted.
7 – Remove the nachos from the oven and place on a heat resistant surface, and allow nachos to cool slightly before serving.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE

August 10, 2022 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE. To prepare this week’s recipe you’ll be needing Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks, Chili Powder, Caraway Seeds, Coriander, Cumin, Salt, Garlic Cloves, Jarred Roasted Red Peppers, Olive Oil, Lemon, and Buns. This Burger sounds and looks incredible! You can find this recipe and purchase any of the Wild Idea Buffalo Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2022! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

GRILLED STEAK BURGERS WITH HARISSA MAYONNAISE
Living in the country, an hour away from the closest grocery, I often substitute ingredients in recipes, which can sometimes lead to a whole new recipe. My rendition of Harissa Sauce is one of those recipes. It’s my new favorite sauce and although it is terrific on everything (including a spoon), it is particularly great on Wild Idea Bison Sirloin Steaks (or any of our cuts)!

Ingredients: (Makes 2 to 4 servings)

2 – 6 ounce Wild Idea Buffalo Sirloin Steaks
1 – teaspoon chili powder
½ – teaspoon caraway seeds
½ – teaspoon coriander
½ – teaspoon cumin
½ – teaspoon salt
3 – garlic cloves
1/3 – cup roasted red peppers (I always keep a jar on hand in my pantry)
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – lemon, juiced
2 to 4 – quality buns, brushed with oil and lightly toasted

Preparation:
1 – Rinse the steaks under cold water and pat dry with paper towels.
2 – Using a fine tine fork, pierce the steaks at an angle a few times on each side. This will assist with getting the flavors of the Harissa Sauce into the meat.
3 – Mix the spices, roasted red peppers, olive oil, and lemon juice together in a blender and puree until smooth.
4 – Rub half of the Harissa Sauce into the prepped steaks, cover and allow them to rest for 2 hours before cooking, or make ahead of time and place in refrigerator to marinade, removing 2 hours before cooking to allow steaks to come to room temperature. Reserve and refrigerate the other half of the Harissa Sauce for the mayonnaise.
5 – Preheat grill to 500°. Shake off excess marinade and grill over hot heat for 2 minutes on each side. Remove steaks from the grill, cover, and allow them to rest for 5 minutes.
6 – Slice steaks thin and pile on to toasted buns. Top with Harissa Mayonnaise, recipe listed below. Fabulous!
7 – Roasted Red Pepper Harissa Mayonnaise
This tasty condiment will keep in a sealed jar in your refrigerator for up to a month.

Ingredients:

½ – batch Harissa Sauce
2 – tablespoons mayonnaise
2 – tablespoons cider or rice vinegar
¼ – cup onions, finely diced
¼ – cup cilantro, chopped
1 – Gently mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl with a fork. Place in a sealed jar and refrigerate until needed. Pull the mayonnaise out about an hour before using to let it come to room temperature.

CHORIZO HASH
One way of adding a whole lot of flavor with very little effort to any recipe is to have our Buffalo Chorizo on hand. Both of the recipes below can be prepared meatless, but by adding the Chorizo you are adding flavor and a super healthy protein!

Ingredients: (serves 6 or 4 hungry ranchers)
1 – half pound package Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – cup onions, chopped
2 – cups squash or yams, diced & partially cooked through
1 – teaspoon each; cumin, coriander, salt & pepper
1/4 – teaspoon chili powder
2 to 3 cups – spinach, chopped
I – lemon, juiced
Chili Flake

Preparation:

1 – Prep all ingredients as noted in ingredient list.
2 – In a large sauté pan or cast iron skillet over medium high heat, add olive oil, onions and spices. Stir to incorporate and allow to start to brown.
3 – Crumble in the Chorizo Sausage and break up into the onions with a spatula. Continue to cook until lightly browned.
4 – Stir in squash or yams and stir to incorporate, stirring occasionally. About seven minutes.
5 – Add chopped spinach and stir to incorporate. Add lemon juice and stir in. Reduce heat to low.
6 – Season to taste and finish with a sprinkle of chili flake.
Serve immediately with crusty bread. Leftovers make a great breakfast with a poached egg on the top!
