PALEO BUFFALO SLIDERS (AIP FRIENDLY)
Shared by Jelena Louie

Here’s a rather unusual recipe. It is Paleo and AIP friendly. I am suffering from different food allergies and intolerances, and have had to come up with a lot of recipes that are grain-free, dairy-free, and don’t use nightshades, legumes, or seed & vegetable oils.
I’m thinking that there might be more people out there who are struggling with their diet trying to find something that wouldn’t aggravate their health issues. I hope this will give them hope that they can still have a proper bison burger without suffering for days after eating it.

Ingredients:

For sliders:

1 lb Wild Idea Ground Bison Meat
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
1/2 tsp ground sage
1/4 tsp marjoram
1/4 tsp garlic powder

For buns:

2 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill tapioca flour
1/4 cup olive oil
2/3 cup full fat coconut milk
2 large eggs (room temperature)
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp oregano

Accompaniments:
Lettuce leaves, onions, pickles, paleo mayonnaise

Preparation:

For sliders:
1 – Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, and form small patties (makes approximately 8). Place patties on a plate and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for a minimum of 6 hours to allow the flavors to blend. When ready to cook, grill on a grill or stove top in a cast iron skillet.

For buns:
1 – Preheat oven to 375 degrees F with the rack placed in the middle. In a bowl, combine tapioca flour, salt, pepper, and oregano whisking to combine well. In a small pot, heat coconut milk and olive oil until scalding and turn off the heat. Slowly incorporate tapioca flour mix into the pot all the while stirring with a wooden spoon. At this point, your dough will be very dry and lumpy.

2 – Wait for a few minutes for the dough to cool down, then add eggs, one at a time, breaking up the eggs with the wooden spoon and incorporating them into the dough. Mix until just incorporated, then turn out onto a clean surface and knead with hands moistened with either cold water or oil (the dough is rather sticky). Do not over-mix.

3 – Using wet or oiled hands, pinch off approximately 8 equal pieces of dough, rolling them into balls and flattening slightly. Place the dough patties on a parchment covered cookie sheet, approximately an inch apart as they will rise some during baking time.

4 – Bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes, then lower heat to 325 degrees, and bake another 15-20 minutes. Take out of the oven and cool in the pan for 2-3 minutes.

5 – To assemble, cut buns in half and spread a bit of paleo mayonnaise on both sides. Layer lettuce, onion, pickles, and grilled bison patties on one half of each bun, and top with the second half of the bun. Enjoy!

6 – These sliders are great served with sweet potato fries, coleslaw, or grated carrot charoset (type of middle-eastern sweet and savory dish). If you’re not following a paleo diet, feel free to use full fat cow’s milk instead of coconut milk, and add approximately 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese into the bun dough for an extra special treat.

This week’s Wild idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a 5 SPICE BBQ BUFFALO RIBS. Included is the recipe for the Ribs and also for the Roasted Carrots and Onions and the BBQ Sauce. To make the Ribs you’ll be needing Wild Idea Buffalo Short Ribs, Chinese Five Spice, Ground Ginger, Garlic Powder, Onion Powder, Sea Salt, and Buffalo Broth. 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/

5 SPICE BBQ BUFFALO RIBS
This recipe was inspired by Dr. Mark Hyman. I stayed true to the seasonings but modified the technique from baking to braising, as it has been my experience that baking true 100% grass-fed/grass-finished meats does not work. Braising is required to break down the connective tissues for a fall-off-the-bone tenderness. The results were delicious! This recipe may look long and complicated, but it is super easy! You can find Dr. Hyman’s recipe here. Note: If using Back Ribs, reduce cooking time to one hour.

Ingredients for Ribs:

3 – pounds Buffalo Short Ribs or 2 packages Back Ribs
1½ – teaspoons Chinese Five Spice
¾ – teaspoon ground ginger
1½ – teaspoons garlic powder
1½ – teaspoons onion powder
½ – teaspoon sea salt
2 – cups Buffalo Broth or organic beef or chicken broth, heated

Ingredients for Roasted Carrots & Onions:
8 – carrots, peeled and split lengthwise
2 – onions, peeled and cut into wedges
olive oil
salt and pepper

Ingredients for BBQ Sauce:
½ – cup unsweetened, unsalted tomato paste
¼ – teaspoon all-natural liquid smoke (optional)
1 – teaspoon Chinese 5 Spice
½ – teaspoon garlic powder
½ – teaspoon onion powder
2 – tablespoons coconut aminos or tamari
2 – tablespoons apple cider vinegar
½ to 1 cup reserved braising liquid

Preparation:

1 – Rinse the ribs and pat them dry. Place the ribs in a pan, spacing them apart.
2 – Combine all of the rib spices in a bowl.
3 – Rub all the spices into the meat. Cover and allow the ribs to rest for 1 to 2 hours at room temperature.
4 – Preheat the oven to 350°.
5 – Bake the ribs, uncovered, for 15 minutes.
6 – Add the hot broth and cover with foil. Continue to cook/braise for 1½ hours. Check meat for tenderness; if it is not to your desired tenderness, continue to braise for another 20 minutes or until preferred tenderness is reached.
7 – Place the carrots and onions on a baking sheet, drizzle generously with olive oil, and season with salt and pepper, tossing to coat. Add the pan to the oven after the ribs have cooked for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
8 – While the ribs and vegetables are cooking, mix all of the BBQ sauce ingredients together.
9 – Remove the braised ribs and roasted vegetables from the oven and transfer the ribs to the baking sheet with the roasted vegetables.
10 – Drain juices from the braising pan and add ½ to 1 cup of the reserved pan juices to the sauce.
11 – Turn the oven to broil and place a rack on second shelf from the top.
12 – Mop the ribs with the sauce and place in the oven. Broil until the sauce starts to bubble a bit, about 4 minutes. Turn the ribs and repeat mopping and broiling.
13 – Remove from the oven and serve. You will love this!

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Buffalo Pot Roast

November 10, 2021 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 Pot Roast. It’s a Fall/Winter Comfort Food Classic – Buffalo Pot Roast! Made using the Wild Idea Buffalo Chuck Roast. 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 2021! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

Buffalo Pot Roast
Nothing represents “comfort food” more than a traditional pot roast. Wild Idea’s 100% grass-fed, rich and slightly sweet bison roast, braised until tender and juicy, nestled in a bed of potatoes and carrots, and covered with pan gravy, says it all! Always a favorite, but this savory, one pot meal is a wonderful way to welcome the fall! (Serves 6 to 8)

Ingredients:
1 – 3 pound Wild Idea Buffalo 3 Lbs. Chuck Roast
2 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – teaspoons sea salt
2 – teaspoons black pepper
2 – teaspoons garlic powder
2 – teaspoons thyme, or two to three sprigs fresh thyme *I use half fresh & half-dried.
1 – teaspoon rosemary, or one to two small fresh sprigs *I use half fresh & half-dried.
1 – teaspoon oregano, or one sprig oregano *I use half fresh & half-dried.
2 – onions, 1 diced and 1 quartered
1 to 2 tomatoes, coarse chopped
5 – cups buffalo, vegetable or organic beef stock
2 – bay leaves
6 – potatoes, quartered
3 – celery stalks, quartered
4 to 6 – carrots, peeled and quartered
½ – cup red wine
1 – tablespoon corn starch, or more if needed

Preparation:

1) Preheat oven to 225°. Rinse bison roast, pat dry and remove string. *Removing string is optional; I usually remove for this preparation, so I don’t loose the seasoning in removing after cooking.

2) Mix all the dried seasonings together. Rub the roast with 1 tablespoon of the olive oil, and rub the dried seasoning into the roast.

3) In a heavy pot over high heat, heat the remaining tablespoon of the olive oil. Place the seasoned roast into the hot oil and brown for 5 minutes. Turn roast 3 times, searing for 5 minutes each. *Positioning roast up against the pan sidewalls will help in browning the whole roast.

4) Move the roast to the side and add the chopped onions, lifting the roast so onions cover the bottom and stir occasionally. Allow the onions to cook for about 5 minutes.

5) Add the chopped tomatoes around the roast, the bay leaf, and pour in the stock. Let the stock come to a full boil, then cover and turn off the heat.

6) Transfer covered roast into the preheated oven on the middle rack. Braise the buffalo pot roast for 6 hours.

7) During the last half hour of cooking, add the potatoes, pushing them down into the juices. Cover and increase heat to 375°.

8) Cook the potatoes for 15 minutes, then, add the celery, onion, and carrots. Cover and cook for an additional 15 minutes. Check the vegetables to insure they are cooked through, but still slightly firm. Continue to cook for a few more minutes if needed.

9) Remove the pot roast from the oven, and transfer the roast and the vegetables to a cutting board or platter. Cover with foil.

10) Place the pot with the juices on the stovetop over medium high heat. Bring to a boil. Mix the cornstarch into the wine, and whisk into the bubbling pan juices. If the gravy is not to your desired thickness add more wine/cornstarch mix, until desired consistency is achieved. Season to taste.

11) Carve the roast and pass with gravy and crusty bread.

Fried Grouper w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob Sweet Corn

Today’s Menu: Fried Grouper w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob Sweet Corn

 

Just a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea to start my day. 94 degrees, humid, and sunny out there. Watered everything down after my Tea. Then I went and picked up Breakfast for Mom at Wendy’s. Back home they finally finished our outside wooden deck up! Took a while but worth it. I now have a ramp so I can roll right up in my Hoveround, so nice! Should have had it done years ago. It’s getting too hot and humid to do much else outside, called it a day. For Dinner tonight I prepared Fried Grouper w/ Sliced New Potatoes and Corn on the Cob Sweet Corn.

 

I love my Fish and Seafood, especially this Florida Gulf Coast Grouper. When we went to Jungle Jim’s this morning I picked up Grouper Fillets they had on sale, couldn’t pass that up! I first washed the fillets off in cold water and then cut the huge fillets into 4 smaller fillets, keeping 2 out for Dinner and froze the other 2.

 

To prepare the fillet I seasoned it with just a bit of Sea Salt and put the fillet in a Hefty Zip Plastic Bag where I then added McCormick Golden Dipt Seafood Fry Mix. Shook until the fillets was well coated. Shook off the excess. Then got the Cast Iron Skillet out, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Cooking Spray and added a tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil. Heated the skillet on medium heat. When the skillet was ready I added the Grouper Fillets, frying about 3 1/2 minutes per side until golden brown. Grouper is so meaty and flavorful. And these turned out Delicious!

 

For one side I heated up a can of Del Monte Sliced New Potatoes. I use a lot of Del Monte Vegetable Products, always delicious and store a lot longer than fresh Vegetables. To prepare them I emptied the can into a small sauce pan. Heated it on medium heat until heated through.

 

For another side I boiled an Ear of Sweet Corn, thanks again to Jungle Jim’s! It came out so good. I seasoned it with Morton’s Light Salt and Blue Bonnet Light Butter. Quite a Meal tonight. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn with Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grouper – Firm texture, white meat with large flake and a mild flavor. Extra lean fish.

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I have a recipe for APPLE-BALSAMIC SALMON to pass along. To make this recipe you’ll be needing Salmon Fillets, Sea Salt, Apple Jelly, Balsamic Vinegar, Granny Smith Apples, Gala Apples, Leeks, and Course Ground Black Pepper. So you can find this Diabetic Friendly recipe and more all at the Diabetic Gourmet Magazine website. You can also sign up to receive wonderful recipes, engaging articles, helpful and healthful tips, critically important news and more. Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2021! https://diabeticgourmet.com/

APPLE-BALSAMIC SALMON

Ingredients

4 (4-ounce) skinless salmon fillets, 3/4 to 1 inch thick
1/4 to 1 teaspoon fine sea salt (normal table salt can be used)
1/4 cup apple jelly
2 teaspoons aged balsamic vinegar
3/4 cup julienne-cut, unpeeled, Granny Smith or other green apple (1/4 x 1-1/2-inch-long slivers)
3/4 cup julienne-cut, unpeeled Gala or other reddish apple (1/4 x 1-1/2-inch-long slivers)
1/3 cup very thin sliced and quartered leek (white and light green portion only)
Course-ground black pepper

Directions

1 – Preheat oven to 450 F. Fold each piece of paper crosswise in half. Cut 4 half-heart shapes 7 inches longer and 4 inches wider than the fillets (the fold edges will be the centers of the hearts). Open each paper or foil heart; set aside.
2 – Lightly sprinkle salmon with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place each fillet near the center on one side of each heart.
3 – Heat apple jelly over low heat or in a microwave oven just until melted. Remove from heat; stir in balsamic vinegar. Spoon mixture evenly over fillets. Toss together apples and leek. Place mixture evenly on top of fillets.
4 – Fold opposite side of each heart up and over the fish and apple mixture. Starting at top of heart, fold edges to seal open sides by making small tight folds. Twist tip of hearts to close packets. Place packets on baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 8 to 12 minutes until fish flakes easily. (Carefully open packets to check doneness.)
5 – To serve, cut packets open by slashing a large X on the top of each, then fold back paper. Transfer packets to dinner plates and serve with rice. Or, if desired, remove fish with apples from packets and place slightly on top of rice; spoon over juices. Season to taste with additional salt and the pepper.
NOTES:
This recipe makes enough balsamic-apple juice for serving over brown rice.
