When grilling steaks……………….

Let your steaks stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling. They will cook faster all the way to the center and stay juicer.

BUFFALO VS BISON

One question that we often receive is: “What is the difference between buffalo and bison?” Quite simply, both names refer to the same animal. Understandably, this has caused some confusion, but both terms are used interchangeably, and both are accepted.
For some background, the name buffalo is thought to have originated from European explorers who confused the animal they found in the New World with animals they were more familiar with – African or Asian Buffalo. As with the misnaming of Native Americans (Indians), the name stuck. Our National Mammal was only given the name bison after European scientists studied the skeletons years later. Today, the word buffalo is still often used for the American Bison. For example; Buffalo Gap National Grasslands, Buffalo Bill, the Buffalo Nickel, Buffalo Bills and Buffalo, South Dakota… etc.

There are two sub-species of American Bison (Bison bison). The first is the Plains Bison – originally found in huge numbers on the Great Plains. The second is the Wood Bison, which lived in smaller herds on the woody edges of the Great Plains and are now mostly found in the forests of Central Canada.

At Wild Idea Buffalo Company, we raise 100% Grass-Fed Buffalo (Bison bison) that roam much like their ancestors did on the Great Plains of South Dakota and long before the names got muddled.

Seared Flat Iron Steaks with Bagna Cauda

A good Flat Iron steak can be a hit or miss experience. This is based on two general principles, first is the quality of the meat, which if bad, you cannot fix, and second is the care that went into cutting the steak. Wild Idea’s Flat Iron steaks are the best quality and they are cut with specific care, giving you assured success. The recipe below for Bagna Cauda, which is an Italian dipping sauce, is terrific on meat or with grilled or blanched veggies, and crusty bread. An assortment of all makes a great party tray when entertaining. (Makes 2 entrée portions, or 6 hors d’oeuvres portions)

Steak Ingredients:

1 – 8 oz. Flat Iron Steak
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – teaspoon lemon juice
1 – teaspoon black pepper
½ – teaspoon sea salt +

Preparation:

1) Rinse steak and pat dry with paper towels.Seared Flat Iron Steaks with Bagna Cauda2

2) Mix the rest of the ingredients together and rub into the steak. Cover and allow to rest at room temperature for two hours before cooking.

3) On stove top over high heat, heat a *seasoned (*a pan that has been rubbed with oil and allowed to absorb into the pan)cast iron or heavy clad pan. Insure your exhaust fan is on high, as you will have a little smoke.

4) Shake off any excess of the seasoned oil and place steak in hot pan. Sear one and a half minutes on the first side, then turn and sear for an additional minute. Remove pan from heat and remove the steak from pan. Transfer the steak to a plate or cutting board and cover with foil. Allow steak to rest for 5 minutes before cutting.

5) Slice, plate, and drizzle or serve with Bagna Cauda.

Creamy Bagna Cauda (makes about 1 cup)

This sauce can be made with a combination of butter & olive oil or one or the other. The garlic-flavored milk can be omitted if you do not want a creamy texture. I prefer a combination of both butter & oil, and do add a little of the milk as it helps to keep the dipping sauce from separating, which is normal.

Ingredients:

1/3 – cup milk
4 – good sized garlic cloves, peeled
½ – cup cilantro or parsley
5 – anchovy fillets
4 – tablespoons each, hot melted butter & hot olive oil
1½ – tablespoons fresh squeezed lemon juice
1 – teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

1) In a double broiler over medium high heat, bring milk and garlic cloves to a gentle boil. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and allow to steep for half an hour. Shut heat off and leave the garlic in the milk for two hours.

2) Remove the garlic cloves from the milk and place in a blender or food processor, along with the herbs, anchovy fillets, butter, oil, and lemon juice. Pulse puree to incorporate. Add 2 tablespoons of the garlic milk and pulse puree a second time.

3) Season to taste and reheat.

Let the Steaks rest at room temperature………..

From the One Good Thing website – Take meat out of the fridge and let it sit out at room temperature for 20-30 minutes. The key to a perfect steak is cooking it at a high temperature for a short amount of time. The colder the steak is when it hits the grill, the longer it will take to cook it. And the more time it spends over the heat, the tougher it gets. Ideally, you want the interior of the meat to be a bit cool when it hits the grill. This helps you to achieve the perfect medium rare steak.

Today’s Menu: 8 oz. Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast (Light)

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread, and a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside had a shower early this morning and one later on in the afternoon. Partly cloudy, humid, and 89 degrees. our yard is like a magnet for leaves and limbs. I had to get the rake out and rake the front and side yards. Way to early in the year to be raking! Pretty quiet Memorial Day Weekend around here. My neighbor across the street was out mowing his lawn and doing some raking also. We combined the piles of leaves and gave each other a hand in picking them up. I told you it was quiet out! For Dinner tonight I prepared a 8 oz. Buffalo Sirloin Steak w/ Baked Potato and Texas Toast Light.

 

 

 

 

I just got my order in from Wild Idea Buffalo. It came in a couple of days ago. I had a Buffalo Burger yesterday and having the Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz. for Dinner tonight. I purchased the Buffalo Burger Patties, Buffalo Top Sirloin Steak 8 oz., a 8 oz. Flat Iron Buffalo Steak, (2) Fine Cut Sirloin Steak 6 oz., (2) Petite Top Sirloin Steak 5 oz., and a Teres Major Filet – Teres Major Filet 6 oz. There’s some good eating ahead!

 

 

 

 

 

I prepared one of the Wild Idea Buffalo 8 oz. Top Sirloin Steak tonight. I had it in the freezer so I let it thaw overnight in the fridge. So easy to prepare these. I start by rubbing a very light coat of Extra Virgin Olive Oil on it and then season it with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I pan fried in a medium size skillet. I added a 1/2 tablespoon of Extra Virgin Olive Oil to the pan and preheated the skillet on medium heat, added the Steak and fried it about 4 minutes per side. I topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms that I prepared. Love the combo of Steak and Mushrooms! Came out a perfect Medium Rare, nice char on the outside with a pink moist and juicy center. You just can’t beat the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks.The Steak was nice size so with the leftovers I’ll have Steak and Eggs in the morning for Breakfast. Topped it with some Sauteed Mushrooms.

 

 

 

To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love them Potatoes! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. I think a Buffalo Steak along with a Baked Potato and Texas Toast has to be my favorite Steak Dinner! For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Coffee-Rubbed Beef with Red-Eye Beans
Tender beef steaks get an intense flavor rub of coffee, herbs, and chiles before being grilled. Robust Red-Eye Beans are the perfect accompaniment. Best of all, it’s on the table in less than an hour……………

Peppered Ribeye Steaks with Grilled Sweet Peppers
In this recipe, a homemade dry rub full of zesty spices does wonders to flavor the ribeye steaks. The rub is easy to prepare and is lower in sodium than most purchased rubs. It works well on pork, too!…………

Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Watercress Pesto
Not all pestos are made with basil—this version calls for a mixture of watercress and mint, and uses almonds instead of pine nuts. It tastes delicious served with grilled flat iron steaks…..

Let it rest, twice………

Cold steaks don’t cook evenly. Placing a chilled piece of meat in a pan or on the grill makes it difficult for the heat to reach the center. Let the steaks rest out on the counter at least 30 minutes before cooking. After cooking, it’s just as important to let the steaks rest again for 5–10 minutes, so the juices redistribute and the fibers relax. Cutting into a steak the moment it comes off the heat will result in a tough dry steak.

Reducing the fat…….

Grill or roast meat on a rack so the fat drips away.

Don’t slice that yet…………

If you slice into meat right after it finishes cooking, precious juices will escape. Wait 5 minutes before biting into burgers or grilled chicken, 7 minutes before cutting into steaks, and 15 minutes before carving a large roast.
