Lemon-Garlic Steak and Green Beans
For a steak that’s deliciously tender, flavorful and not too fatty, we reach for strip (also known as New York strip or shell steak). It has less than half the saturated fat of a rib-eye but is more tender than leaner sirloin. Here, we cook green beans in the same pan used to sear the spiced steak. All those delicious drippings add richness to the beans—plus there’s one less pan to wash!…..

Honey-Garlic Chicken Thighs with Carrots and Broccoli
In this easy and healthy dinner recipe, sweet and savory baked honey-garlic chicken thighs come with a side of veggies that cook on the same sheet pan as the chicken. The honey-soy-garlic marinade for the chicken does double duty as an irresistible sauce to drizzle over everything. Lining your baking sheet with foil will protect your pan from the sticky honey-soy-garlic sauce, so cleanup will be a breeze too. If you can’t find small carrots, cut medium carrots in half lengthwise……

Lemon-Garlic Pasta with Salmon
Wondering what to do with leftover salmon? This is a delicious and easy way to turn it into another weeknight-friendly, quick dinner. Don’t forget to reserve some pasta water–its starch thickens the lemon-garlic pasta sauce and makes it silky-smooth……

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.
