Healthy Bison Recipes
Find healthy, delicious bison recipes, from the food and nutrition experts at EatingWell.

Indian-Spiced Stuffed Eggplant
Lots of Indian spices flavor these stuffed eggplants. They can be a complete meal, but if you are feeling extra energetic, make this dish part of a multicourse Indian feast along with curried vegetables, basmati rice, yogurt salad and some Indian breads. As a side dish, plan on one-quarter of an eggplant per person………………………………..

Mexican Bison Stew
Mexican cooks are great at turning tough chunks of meat into delicious and tender stews. This one, which uses tougher cuts of bison, such as chuck or brisket, is flavored with chili powder, cumin and tequila. Serve with warm tortillas……………………………

Red Curry Bison Short Ribs with Baby Bok Choy
Thai red curry paste, garlic, ginger, cilantro and fish sauce flavor the coconut-infused broth for these braised bison short ribs. A tough cut of meat, the short ribs become meltingly tender when cooked slowly over low heat. Bison short ribs, unlike beef short ribs, are quite lean and therefore can be enjoyed as part of a healthy diet. If you have time, prepare this dish through Step 2 a day ahead–the flavor of the sauce and tenderness of the meat get even better overnight. Serve with bowls of jasmine rice…………………………………

Ingredients:

1 – pkg. Buffalo 2.5 lbs. BBQ Back Ribs or 3 lbs. Short Rib Strips
2/3 – cup ketchup
Jerk Marinade

1 – cup pineapple juice
¼ – cup soy

Preparation:

1 – Rinse ribs and pat dry with paper towel.
2 – Mix all marinade ingredients together in blender and pulse to incorporate.

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Wine Braised Short Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots

 

 

Wine Braised Buffalo Short Ribs 012

A snowy and cold blustery day here in West Chester today. They say our area will end up with around 5-6 inches of snow. The heavy amounts went South of us, they’ll end up with 9-11 inches. They say that it’s going to be a very cold week for us. Ran the vacuum and few other household chores, just to keep busy today. For dinner tonight I prepared, Buffalo Wine Braised Short Ribs w/ Mashed Potatoes and Sliced Carrots.

 

 

 

I had ordered this late last week from Wild Idea Buffalo, 2 lb. Wine Braised Short Ribs and somWine Braised Buffalo Short Ribs 002e Buffalo Burgers. Couldn’t wait to try them so I prepared the Wine Braised Short Ribs for dinner tonight! They come already braised, just heat and serve. Wild Idea Buffalo braises them in Red Wine, Shallot, Garlic, Tomato Juice, Water Sea Salt, Organic: Black Pepper, Thyme, Rosemary, Beef Broth, Butter, Parsley. The short ribs are browned with onion, carrots and celery, then de-glazed with red wine and braised low and slow until tender. I added some sliced Baby Bella Mushrooms to it as it was cooking. To prepare them, just thaw the package contents and place in a covered saucepan over medium heat and heat through. Ready to serve! What an incredible taste! Just seasoned perfectly and so tender. Have to order these again soon!

 

 
To go with those delicious Braised Short Ribs I prepared my favorite Mashed Potatoes, Bob Evan’s Mashed Potatoes. Just heat the package up in the microwave for 6 minutes total and serve! Then I also opened up a can of Del Monte Sliced Carrots, heated them up in a small sauce pan and served. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread that I buttered with I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Greek Yogurt.

Everything I know About Cooking Buffalo Ribs
By: Jill O’Brien

 

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribs
Ribs are enjoyed year around, but with the grilling season in full swing, I have received a few good questions recently on the preparation of them. Hopefully it will clarify some of your questions too.

The first lesson is: 100% Grass-Fed Bison Ribs are not like corn finished bison or beef ribs. If you are following a recipe that is formulated using pork or corn fed meat and are using Wild Idea Buffalo 100% Grass-Fed Ribs, and it doesn’t turn out, this could be why. When you find a recipe that sounds good to you, it doesn’t mean that you have to abandon the idea of the recipe. Use the seasonings, liquids or sauces, but for best results, follow one of the techniques listed below.

Before we get to techniques, here are a few other options you have in preparing ribs.

*Removing membrane from the backside of ribs: I do this only occasionally, if I’m preparing for a fancier affair, otherwise I leave the membrane intact. It will become soft during cooking process and is easy to remove after cooking or while eating. If you choose to remove the membrane, slide a knife between membrane and meat, preferably at a corner, until you can easily grab a hold of the membrane with your fingers. Drop your knife and use one hand as resistance on ribs and the other to pull the membrane away from the meat.

*Trimming: Some people choose to trim the ribs of exterior fat. I do not, unless there is an excessive layer of fat on the ribs. During the cooking process the fat will become very gelatinous and buttery, which my family likes. This however is a personal preference.

*Scoring ribs: I score the ribs if I am marinating, to tenderize or to get more of the marinade flavor or rub into the meat. Score buffalo ribs by making about ½ inch deep and 1 inch long cuts in the meat or fat.

*Marinating: If you are using a marinade to tenderize and not just flavor the buffalo ribs, my recommendation is pineapple juice, or better yet pureed pineapple. The enzymes in pineapple will assist in breaking down the connective tissue. For ribs you can marinade in pineapple for up to 24 hours, but watch marinating time on other cuts of meat, as pineapple can turn a roast or steak into mushy meat. If you are interested in marinating you might want to try my recipe for Wild Idea Buffalo Jerk Ribs, located here, http://wildideabuffalo.com/2014/grilled-jerk-buffalo-ribs/.

Wild Idea Buffalo Ribs 2

The following techniques, for the listed Wild Idea Buffalo rib cuts, I have found to be very successful.

*For Un-Cut Short Plate and Short Ribs:

*Braising Technique: Cook ribs in liquid in a heavy roaster, Dutch oven or Crock Pot, covered with lid or heavy foil. Braising achieves tenderness, and keeps meat moist and juicy. If braising is done in oven, set oven temperature to 375° and braise for 3.5 to 4 hours, for fall of the bone tender ribs. Use less time if you want buffalo ribs a little chewy. Lower temperatures can be used, but time will need to be increased, which works well for Crock Pots or lower oven settings of around 190°. Adjust time and temperature based on poundage of product. Also know your slow cooker, as each preform a little differently. I have braised ribs in a slow cooker for 6 to 8 hours depending on setting and poundage. Product is ready when you can easily pull meat apart with two forks. Continue braising until this is achieved. Additional liquids may be needed. After braising is complete, you can finish on the grill and baste with sauce. Preheat grill to 400°, and place foil over grill grates. Place ribs on top of foil and make slits with I knife in the foil. Baste with your favorite sauce, keep grill lid closed during cooking time and turn every couple of minutes. Grill for about 6 minutes, or until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

*Foil Wrap Steaming over Indirect Grilling: Place bison ribs on top of 2 sheets of heavy foil. Add a quarter to a half-cup of liquid, and seal edges tightly. Place foil wrapped ribs in 500° preheated grill, close grill lid and cook for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 375° – 400°, and move foil wrapped ribs to an indirect heat area of the grill.

Cook ribs for 3.5 to 4 hours, or until ribs are to your desired tenderness. About 4 hours for fall of the bone tender ribs. Remove from grill and drain juices from foil. (Pan juices are great to add to a sauce). Increase grill heat to 450°, open foil and move ribs over direct heat. Baste with your favorite sauce, closing grill lid during cooking time, turning every two minutes until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

*Buffalo Back Ribs: Braising or Foil Steam is optional, but not necessary. My preference is grilling. Ribs will have a little chew to them, but my guys prefer their Back Ribs this way. If you choose to braise or foil steam, decrease your time to 1/3 of above suggested.

*Grilling: For a more tender result, marinate first. Preheat grill to 400°, and place foil over grill grates. Place ribs on top of foil and make slits with I knife in the foil. Turn ribs every 3 minutes, keeping grill lid closed during cooking. Do this for about 6 minutes total. After initial cooking you can start basting ribs with your sauce, again keeping grill lid closed during cooking time, and turning every couple of minutes until desired charred stickiness is accomplished.

Here is another more traditional recipe that will produce a successful outcome. http://wildideabuffalo.com/2012/buffalo-short-ribs-un-cut-short-plate/

I do hope you find these tips and recipes helpful. If you have a technique or recipe that you have found to be successful, I would love to hear from you. Cheers! Jill.

Slow Cooker Buffalo Short Ribs w/ Roasted Red Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots

Today’s Menu: Slow Cooker Buffalo Short Ribs w/ Roasted Red Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots

 

Buffalo Short Ribs 009
The temps outside are gradually getting cooler. Nice sunny and crisp day out, with plenty of sunshine though! Purchased a new microwave, should be in sometime Thursday. With the microwave down I’ve been boiling my water for Green Tea. I’ve got one of the whistling tea kettles, love this thing when it starts whistling. Another couple of new recipes again for dinner tonight, Slow Cooker Buffalo Short Ribs w/ Roasted Red Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots.

 

 
I had ordered a few items from Wild Idea Buffalo that came in last week and one item was their Buffalo Short Rib Strips. I laid them out in the fridge overnight to thaw. Come early morning I got them out of the package and what great looking Short Rib Strips they were! Lean and Meaty, like all Buffalo Meat leaner and less fat than Beef and other meats.

 

 

Buffalo Short Ribs 007
To prepare them I seasoned them with Sea Salt and Cracked Ground Peppercorn. Then rolled them in Flour, shaking off the excess Flour. Took a large skillet, sprayed with Pam, and heated it up on medium heat. Added Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the skillet and then added my Short Ribs. Browned them on all sides about 2 minutes each side. Then it was off to the Crock Pot! I had already lined the Crock Pot with a Reynold’s Crock Pot Liner and sprayed it with Pam Spray. I then added a 1/4 cup of Swanson Low Sodium Beef Broth and let it warm up on low. Then when the Ribs were browned I added the Crock Pot and sealing it with lid. I cooked them on low for about 7 hours, till they were fall off the bone delicious! Removed the Ribs from the Crock Pot and skimmed the fat off the sauce. transferred the sauce to a saucepan. Simmered over high heat, stirring occasionally, until the sauce is thickened, about 10 minutes or so. You may have to add a bit of flour to it, to thicken. When ready poured the sauce over the ribs. These are just too good! The Buffalo Short Ribs, like all Wild Idea Buffalo Meats, were delicious with just an incredible taste. The sauce made from the juice just enhances the flavor that much more.

 

 
For a side dish I prepared Roasted Red Potatoes, Parsnips and Carrots. I quarted the Red Gourmet Potatoes and peeled the Carrots and Parsnips, cutting them into smaller pieces. I stated by putting the Potatoes and Carrots into a large pan of salted boiling water on high heat and brought back to a boil. Boiling for about 5 minutes, then add the Parsnips and cooked for another 4 minutes. Drained the veggies in a colander and allow to steam dry a bit. Then put a large roasting pan over medium heat and added Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Added Minced Garlic, Oregano Dried Leaves, Parsley Flakes and Dried Rosemary Leaves. Then added the veggies into the pan with a good pinch of Sea Salt and Pepper. Stir them around to get them well coated and spread the veggies evenly out into one layer. Put them into the preheated oven and cooked for about 45 minutes to an hour. I like to stir them up at least once while cooking. They should all be fork-tender, watch them close so they don’t burn. If you like Vegetables you’ll love this recipe, everyone really enjoyed them. I also had a slice of Klosterman Wheat Bread. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Chocolate Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
