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.

For quick and easy garlic bread sticks, split a hot dog bun down the middle and cut each half lengthwise. Butter each strip; sprinkle with garlic salt or garlic powder. Place on a cookie sheet and bake or broil until toasted. If you want to kick it up a little more add some Reduced Fat Shredded Mozzarella Cheese to the top of each bread stick.

When seasoning a dish in your Crock Pot, use chili powders and garlic powder sparingly as these can sometimes intensify over longer cook times.

Use those Spices and Herbs…..

 

If you feel your food is too bland, avoid using salt to spice it up; opt for garlic powder or onion powder instead.

Today’s Menu: Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin 006

 

 

 

It’s been a bit more humid today, cloudy with showers later in the day. Had to have the fridge worked on today, ice maker on the blink. After that I ran an errand for Mom and stopped by the bank. Not a whole lot going on today. For dinner tonight, Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

 

 

cumin-spiced-pork-roast-2
I had come across the Cumin Spiced Pork Tenderloin recipe a while back on-line, there’s several variations of it on various sites. To prepare it I’ll need; 1 tbsp Roasted Cumin, 1 tsp Garlic Powder, 1 tsp Chili Powder, 1 teaspoon Sea Salt, 1/2 teaspoon Hungarian Paprika, 2 teaspoons Dried Oregano, and 1/4 teaspoon Black Pepper. To prepare it preheat oven to 350°. Combine all the ingredients; rub it all over the pork. Let stand 20 minutes. Heat the oil in a Cast Iron Skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes, browning on all sides. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until a thermometer registers 155° (slightly pink), turning after 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before slicing. Then get ready to enjoy one delicious Pork Tenderloin! Fantastic combo of Spices, which made one incredible Crust on the Pork with the inside being tender and moist! By far my favorite Pork recipe anymore.

 

 

 

 

For one side I had the leftover Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes from last night, just reheated and served. Then I also heated up a can of Walmart Brand Sliced Carrots. Also had a slice of Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Chocolate Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.
