Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – BUFFALO BORSCHT

April 13, 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 a BUFFALO BORSCHT. To make this recipe you’ll be needing Garlic, Onion, Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat, Beef Broth, Red Beets, Potatoes, Carrots, Celery, Salt, Pepper, Sour Cream, and fresh Dill. 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/

BUFFALO BORSCHT
This recipe is courtesy of a customer.

Note from the customer: I wanted to share a recipe with you, that I thought you might like, since I so enjoy yours. This one is for Buffalo Borscht. I learned it from a Polish friend who told me there are as many borscht’s as there are Poles — I think Buffalo Borscht makes one more.

Note from Jill: I have consumed many servings of Borscht, but confess I have never made it. I researched other recipes, many of which included cabbage. I tried to stay true to the recipe and made only slight modifications to this recipe and they are noted in the parenthesis. Cabbage could easily be added. It is delicious!

Ingredients:

3 – garlic cloves, chopped
1 – onion chopped
1 – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat
6 – cups beef broth (I used 7 cups Buffalo broth)
3 small red beets, or 2 large (I used 4 medium)
3-4 red potatoes (4)
4-6 carrots (5)
The heart of a celery bunch, including leaves
Optional, the leaves of the beets, chopped (Didn’t use.)
Add salt and pepper to taste
Sour cream
Fresh dill

Preparation:
1) Cook 3 cloves of garlic chopped till fragrant in a few tablespoons of olive oil, in a big pot. Add 1 chopped onion, cook till soft. (I used 1 Tb. olive oil & 1 Tb. butter. I cooked the garlic for one minute and the onions for about 4 before adding the meat.)

2) Chop your Wild Idea Buffalo Stew Meat a little more finely than it comes when you buy it, as its for a soup not a stew, add to the onion, and brown. (I added my salt and pepper when I added the meat.)

3) Add 6 cups beef broth. (I used Buffalo broth, 7 cups, and brought it to a boil, then reduced the heat to a simmer.)

4) Add the vegetables to the pot in order they are listed, chopping and cooking while you add. The ones that take longest are listed first.

5) Let simmer until the vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes once they are all in.

6) Chop a generous amount of fresh dill, I use 3 or 4 sprigs, and add it for the last few minutes of cooking. (Season again to taste.)

7) Serve hot soup with a dollop of sour cream and a sprig of fresh dill on top.

Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

Today’s Menu: Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots

 

 
For Breakfast this morning it was Hash Browns, Smoked Turkey Sausage, Toast, and Decaf Green Tea. I had went tobaked-salmon-w-wild-and-long-grain-rice-and-whole-baby-carrots-007 Meijer and they finally had the Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns back in stock! It had been a few weeks since any store had them in stock. So I prepared the Hash Browns and then I prepared a 1/2 Sausage link of the Butterball Hardwood Smoked Turkey Sausage. Added a slice of toasted Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea, and that’s a Breakfast! Big change in the weather again! 50 degrees for a high with rain on and off all day, beats in the teens and snow! So with not a lot going on outside I did some cleaning on the inside. I cleaned and straightened the pantry and the the freezer and refrigerator. For Dinner tonight I prepared Baked Salmon w/ Long Grain and Wild Rice and Whole Baby Carrots.

 
I had purchased the Salmon Fillet last week from Meijer and had it in the freezer. Grabbed the fillet out of the freezerBaked Salmon w Baked Potato and Whole Baby Carrots 001 and let it thaw overnight in the fridge. To prepare it, I rinsed it off with cold water and patted it dry with a paper towel. I preheated the oven on 400 degrees. I seasoned it with McCormick’s Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn and some Dried Dill. Sprayed a small baking pan with Pam w/ Olive Oil Spray and added the Salmon Fillet. Baked it on 400 degrees until the Salmon was fork tender, about 12 minutes total. I love Salmon as I do all Fish and Seafood. The Salmon came out delicious, nicely seasoned and moist. I just love all Fish and Seafood.

 

 

 

baked-salmon-w-wild-and-long-grain-rice-and-whole-baby-carrots-001
To go worth the Salmon I microwaved a bag of Uncle Ben‘s Ready Rice – Long Grain and Wild. I guess my favorite among the Uncle Ben’s Ready Rice, all though I love using them all. Another tasty and easy to fix item, just microwave for 90 seconds and it’s ready.

 

 

 

 

 

Buffalo Tenderloin-Tips w Noodles and Whole Baby Carrots 011
Then I also heated up a can of Kroger Brand Whole Baby Carrots. These are so much easier to prepare than boiling fresh Baby Carrots, and they taste just as fresh and good. I also baked a loaf of Pillsbury French Bread. Then for Dessert later a Jello Sugar Free Dark Chocolate Pudding topped with Cool Whip Free.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Salmon Fillet raw

Salmon /ˈsæmən/ is the common name for several species of fish in the family Salmonidae. Other fish in the same family include trout, char, grayling and whitefish. Salmon are native to tributaries of the North Atlantic and Pacific Ocean. Wikipedia
