Seasoned Collard Greens

Ingredients
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: Approximately 35 minutes.

2 teaspoons sodium-free powdered instant chicken bouillon
2 cups water
2 packages (9 ounces each) frozen collard greens, thawed
1 small onion, finely chopped
1 clove (or 1 teaspoon) minced garlic
2 slices uncooked turkey bacon, chopped
2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 pinch red pepper flakes (more or less to taste)
Cider vinegar

Directions
Yield: 3 1/2 cups
Serving size: 1/2 cup

1 – Stir together bouillon and water in a pan; bring to a boil over high heat. Add greens, onion, garlic, bacon, brown sugar, and salt. Reduce heat to low-medium and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes; stir occasionally. Drain the greens well and season each serving with cider vinegar to taste (give it a try; it actually enhances the flavor of the greens). If the greens are not drained, cornbread can be used to soak up the liquid, or “pot liquor.”

Tempeh Dagwood Sandwich
Stacked up high and filled with smooth avocado, juicy tomato, and creamy cheese, this power-protein sandwich is a South Beach vegetarian favorite. Vegans can use nondairy mayo and soy cheese. If you have extra time, marinate the tempeh for up to an hour.

Recipe Ingredients:
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
1 tablespoon plus 11/2 teaspoons cider vinegar
1 garlic clove, minced
1/2 (8-ounce) package soy tempeh
1 teaspoon mayonnaise
2 slices multigrain bread, lightly toasted
1 ounce shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese (3 tablespoons)
1/4 avocado, peeled and sliced
2 slices tomato

Cooking Directions:
Whisk together soy sauce, vinegar, and garlic in a shallow bowl. Add tempeh and marinate for 10 minutes, turning once halfway through.
Spray a medium nonstick skillet with fat-free cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add tempeh, reserving marinade, and cook until well browned, 4 minutes per side. Remove from heat, add 2 tablespoons of the marinade to the pan, and flip tempeh once or twice until marinade is absorbed.
Spread mayonnaise on 1 bread slice. Place tempeh on top and cover with cheese, avocado, and tomato. Top with remaining bread, gently press down, slice in half, and serve.
Makes 1 serving.

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a SMOKED BUFFALO BRISKET. To make this delicious recipe you’ll need a Wild Idea Buffalo Brisket, Liquid Smoke, Olive Oil, Smoked Paprika, Black Pepper, Salt, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, and Cider Vinegar. You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Brisket along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

SMOKED BUFFALO BRISKET
Serves 6
I have tried smoking buffalo briskets in a smoker, to achieve that smoky pit flavor. My attempts were unsuccessful, as the lean, healthy, buffalo meat becomes dry. This faux smoked technique achieves the tenderness and the flavor of slow smoked meat. Leftovers make excellent cold sandwiches.

Ingredients:

1 3 lb. Wild Idea Buffalo Brisket
1 tablespoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon paprika or smoked paprika
2 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon onion powder
1 tablespoon cider vinegar

Instructions
1 – Rinse brisket and pat dry, and place on sheet of foil, with the fattiest side up.
2 – Mix liquid smoke, olive oil and spices together.
3 – Rub the seasoning into the brisket.
4 – Fold the foil around the brisket, pour vinegar under brisket on foil and seal foil edges. Reinforce with an additional sheet of foil, sealing tightly. This can be done up to 24 hours ahead of grilling time. Let roast rest at room temperature 2 hours before grilling.

For Char Grill:

1 – Start a large amount of coals in half of the grill, coals are ready when half have become ashen colored.
2 – Place roast on grill rack opposite coals, and cover leaving vent open.
Grill for 1 hour, and close vents. Continue to grill for 3 more hours.
3 – Add a few more coals half way through cooking to maintain heat temperature. Turn brisket at his time.
4 – Remove roast from grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Uncover and slice.
5 – Serve with juices that have accumulated in foil.

For Gas Grill:

Allow grill to come to 400*.
1 – Place foil wrapped brisket in center of grill, and turn off burners directly under brisket, leaving burners on each side on high.
2 – Grill for 1 hour. Turn burners down and maintain heat of 350*. Continue to grill for 3 hours. Turn brisket halfway through cooking time.
3 – Remove roast from grill and let rest for 10 minutes. Uncover, slice or pull apart.
4 – Serve with juices that have accumulated in foil.
