Meat is expensive enough, but a big part of the cost is the price you’re paying the butcher to cut it up for you. Buy the largest cuts of meat you can, then cut it up, wrap it in foil, and put in a plastic bag in your freezer. Here are some more tips for butchering meat.

 

 

* Many stores will butcher big cuts of meat for you for free, so ask before doing it yourself!

 
* Use the sharpest knife you have, and never use a serrated knife, which will shred the meat.

 
* For illustrated instructions on how to cut any piece of meat, type the word “butchering” along with the type of meat into a search engine online. There are many tutorials (some including video) online.

Small cuts of meat will spoil more quickly than larger cuts and should not be kept in the refrigerator for more than a day or two. Liver, sweetbreads, and cubed meats should be cooked within one day or be kept frozen.

Well I recently tried Wild Idea Buffalo products and they were incredible! The best tasting Bison I’ve had yet. So now I’m going to give Buffalo Gal a try. My order was just delivered yesterday. It was very well packaged and they kept me updated every step of the shipment by email. I ordered; 1 order of Bison Ribs, 1 package Bison Hot Dogs, 1 package of 2 Bison Top Sirloin Steaks, 2 packages of 3 1/3 lb. Bison Patties. First time I’ll be trying the Short Ribs and Hot Dogs. I’ll be letting you know how they taste and prepare in the upcoming days and weeks. You can purchase everything from Buffalo and Elk to Swabian Hall Pork. I’ve left some info and we link on Buffalo Gal below.

When any type of meat or lunch meat is refrozen, the fat content may cause the food to go rancid. And this is only one reason why meats should not be frozen again after they’ve been thawed – the texture of the meat can suffer, and improper thawing can promote bacterial growth. Instead, refrigerate leftover meats; they can be stored safely for four days.

For all you Bison Lovers out there, like myself, here’s a great web site on Bison http://www.bisoncentral.com/home It has everything you want to know about bison from where to buy it, nutrition, and even recipes. When you get time check it out.

Cooking Tips

Here is an excerpt from the Buffalo is Heart Healthy cookbook, available exclusively through the National Bison Association.

“Although buffalo meat is similar to beef, it needs to be handled and cooked differently. You will find most recipes for other red meats can be adapted to buffalo. The important things to remember are, DO NOT OVERCOOK!!!, and, do not let the meat dry out.

Remember “low and slow.” Cook buffalo meat to the same doneness that you prefer in beef. We recommend medium. Overcooked or dried out buffalo meat will bring you the same results as other meats that are overcooked – something nearly as palatable as an old boot. If you must have your meat well done, consider one of the very low temperature (180-200 degrees) recipes, where the meat is cooked for 10 hours or more. Very slow, moist heat works especially well with the less tender cuts of buffalo, such as chuck. There is nothing to compare with a buffalo chuck roast cooked all day in a slow cooker. With slow cooking, you do not have to worry about overcooking, let it cook until it falls apart.

For steak or burgers, medium heat is recommended and it is even more important to not …
