This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is Prairie Oysters /Buffalo Bull Fries with Herbed Lemon Aioli. It’s from Jill O’Brien of Wild Idea Buffalo. Surprise everyone with just how delicious Rocky Mountain Oysters can be, served with a Herbed Lemon Aioli. You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Bull Fries along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website! So Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

Prairie Oysters /Buffalo Bull Fries with Herbed Lemon Aioli
You may not believe me, but if I had to describe the flavor of this recipe with only one word, other than delicious, I would have to say elegant. That’s right, elegant. Although I have had a Rocky Mountain Oyster or two in my life at neighbor’s brandings, I confess to not ever having made them until a few months ago. It took me a couple of tries to get it just right, but trust me on this they are delicious and were devoured in minutes. Inspired by a few tips from the great meat guru, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, plus a few of my own tricks. A great addition and conversation edible to any party or game gathering!

Prairie Oysters Buffalo Bull Fries with Herbed Lemon Aioli
Ingredients:
2 – packages Wild Idea Buffalo Bull Fries
Water
¾ – cup extra virgin olive oil
¾ – cup rice vinegar
½ – teaspoon chili flake
½ – teaspoon black pepper
¾ – teaspoon salt
8 – sprigs fresh thyme, leaves only
8 – sprigs fresh parsley
1 – lemon, juiced
1 – green onion
2/3 – cup flour
½ – tablespoon onion powder
1 – tablespoon garlic powder
½ – teaspoon cayenne
3 – cups grape-seed or sunflower oil
fresh lemon

Preparation:
1) In a medium sized pot, over high heat, bring 2 quarts water to a rolling boil. Remove Wild Idea Bull Fries from package and drop into boiling water, boil for two minutes.
2) Drain the bull fries in a colander and rinse under cold water, until room temperature.
3) While the bull fries are cooling, in a blender mix the olive oil, vinegar, chili flake, black pepper, ¼ teaspoon of the salt, fresh thyme leaves and parsley together in a blender. Blend marinade until it is well incorporated. Divide marinade equally, placing half of the marinade in a bowl and leaving the remaining half in the blender.
4) Peel the outside skin off of the bull fries. You may need to make a small slit with a knife to get started, but after the skin should peel away like a banana.
5) Place peeled bull fries on a cutting board and remove any of the tougher tissue from the soft tissue. *This will be obvious, as the tougher tissue is also a little bit darker.
6) Place the peeled and cleaned up bull fries into the marinade in the bowl. Bull fries should be immersed in the marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to rest at room temperature for 1 to 2 hours.
7) Add the juice of the fresh lemon and the green onion to the remaining marinade in the blender and blend until well incorporated. The marinade will be beautifully green in color and very fragrant. Transfer the second marinade into a bowl.
8) Remove the bull fries from the first marinade and place them on cutting board. Cut the bull fries into pop in your mouth, bite size pieces. Place cut bull fries into the second marinade, cover closely with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours.
9) Remove marinating bull fries from the refrigerator and drain into a colander. Shake off the excess marinade and lightly blot with a paper towel.
10) In a shallow bowl, mix the flour with the onion & garlic powder, remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and cayenne.
11) In a deep medium sized pan, over medium high heat, heat the oil.
12) Place the bull fries into the flour and toss to coat evenly. *You may want to do this in two batches. Place one flour dredged bull fry piece into the hot oil to test the oil temperature. You will want a nice sizzle and the bull fry should pop to the surface. Add half of the batch slowly and carefully so you do not burn yourself. Use a tong or spoon to move the bull fries’ a round a bit, this will help keep them from sticking together.
13) When golden brown remove the bull fires from the oil with a slotted spoon and place them on a paper sack or paper towel. Season with a sprinkle of salt immediately. Repeat with remaining bull fries.
14) Place warm bull fries in a serving bowl, and squeeze with a wedge or two of lemon. Serve with Herbed Lemon Aioli and hot sauce.

Herbed Lemon Aioli

Ingredients:
2 – egg yolks
1 – large garlic clove
½ – teaspoon salt
½ – teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 – teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
3 – fresh parsley sprigs
½ – teaspoon lemon zest
1 – lemon, juiced
1/3 – cup olive oil
pinch cayenne

Preparation:

Place all ingredients in blender, except olive oil, and mix until incorporated. With blender running, slowly add oil in from the top spout, blending to incorporate. Place contents into serving bowl and refrigerate until needed. Sprinkle with a pinch of cayenne.

DAKOTA TACOS “INDIAN TACOS”
My secret ingredient in the preparation of the fry bread, is club soda, which makes the dough and bread lighter. I also use coconut oil, which has a good nutritional profile, and is great for deep frying. Be sure to fry at a high enough heat, 375° to limit oil absorption and to give the edges a nice crispiness. The slightly spicy, seasoned meat balances nicely with the creamy, Zesty Sour Cream Dressing.

Taco Ingredients:
1 – pound Wild Idea Ground Buffalo Meat
1 – small onion, chopped
1 – tablespoon olive oil
2 – teaspoons chili powder
2 – teaspoons cumin
1½ – teaspoons salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – teaspoon oregano
1 – teaspoon smoked paprika
½ – teaspoon coriander
2 – cups lettuce leaves, or chopped lettuce
1 – cup grated cheddar cheese
Zesty Sour Cream Dressing, recipe below

Preparation:

1) Measure all spice ingredients, and set aside.

2) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat the olive oil.

3) Add the chopped onion and crumble in the ground buffalo.

4) Sprinkle seasonings over the meat, and stir to incorporate, breaking up the meat into smaller pieces as you stir.

5) Cook until meat is browned, about 7 minutes. Cover, set aside, and re-heat when the fry bread is ready.

6) To assemble, place warm fry bread on plates, and top with the hot seasoned meat, lettuce, and cheese. Drizzle with the Zesty Sour Cream Dressing and enjoy!

Fry Bread *Recipe makes 4 fry bread servings, with 275 calories per each.

Ingredients:
2 – cups unbleached organic flour, plus a half cup more for handling and rolling out
2 – teaspoon baking soda
¼ – teaspoon salt
½ – cup 2% milk
½ cup club soda
3 – cups coconut oil

Preparation:

1) Mix flour, baking soda, and salt together in a bowl and sift to incorporate.

2) Add milk and soda and stir in until incorporated. The dough will be slightly sticky.

3) Flour hands and pat dough into a ball, place the dough on a floured surface and divide into 4 equal servings. Using floured hands press portions into a disk shape and roll out into about a six-inch diameter with a floured rolling pin.

4) In a 8 inch diameter saucepan, over medium high heat, heat coconut oil. Oil is at the right temperature when at 375°, or you can test by inserting a wooden spoon into the oil, the oil is ready if it bubbles up around the spoon.

5) Drop fry bread disk into oil carefully, one at a time, cooking about one minute each side or until golden. Place cooked fry breads on a paper bag or paper towels until ready to serve.

*Fry Bread is best served soon after cooking, or while still warm.

Zesty Sour Cream Dressing

Ingredients:
¾ – cup sour cream
2 – tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
2 – tablespoons canned, roasted, peeled green chilies with juice, puréed
¼ – teaspoon cayenne pepper, optional or to taste
salt to taste
Preparation: Mix all ingredients together and whisk to incorporate. Store in refrigerator until needed.

Allow meat and vegetables to rest at room temperature for two hours before proceeding. *I prefer marinating for a longer time period, so the marinade flavors are fully absorbed.
4) Remove steak from marinade and shake off excess. Thread skewers with meat and vegetables, rotating veggies and meat.
5) Turn gas grill to high heat, and heat to 500°. Place kabobs over high heat, closing lid during grill time. Turn Kabobs every 2 minutes, and grill for 5 to 6 minutes for medium rare.
6) Remove from heat and place on a platter, sprinkle with finishing salt and cover, allowing too rest for 5 minutes.

Serve over a bed of tri-colored Quinoa, for a complete deliciously beautiful meal. Enjoy!

LEMON CHICKEN

This dish is great hot or cold. And, it’s even better than I remember – using an Emmer & Co. Heritage Chicken!

Ingredients: (serves 4 to 6)

1 – 3 pound Emmer & Co. Heritage Chicken
1 – cup lemon juice
1 – tablespoon flour
1 – teaspoon paprika
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – tablespoon olive or coconut oil
1 – tablespoon+ unsalted butter
½ – cup chicken stock
3 – tablespoons brown sugar
2 – lemons, sliced and wedged
Fresh thyme sprigs

Preparation:

1 – Rinse chicken and blot dry with a paper towel. Place chicken on cutting board breast side down and remove the backbone with sharp cutting shears, cutting along each side of the backbone. Open the chicken up and turn over. Cut the skin over the breastbone with a scissors. Turn the chicken back over. Using a knife, cut along each side of the breastbone to remove. Cut through the remaining cartilage with a heavy, sharp knife. (There are tutorials for this on-line too.)
2 – Place chicken halves in a glass, baking dish and add 1 cup of lemon juice. Cover and allow the chicken to marinade in the juice for 8 to 24 hours.
3 – Remove chicken from lemon juice. Reserve ½ cup of the remaining lemon juice and blot the chicken dry. *Preheat oven to 300°.
4 – Mix flour paprika, salt and pepper together and sprinkle over skin-side of the chicken.
5 – In a heavy skillet over medium high heat, heat the oil and butter.
6 – Place seasoned chicken skin down in the pan to brown, nestling up against the sides of the pan to brown the edges. This step takes about 10 minutes.
7 – While chicken is browning, mix reserved lemon, chicken stock and brown sugar together.
8 – Lightly butter a baking dish and place browned chicken, skin side up in the pan.
9 – Pour lemon juice mixture over chicken and top chicken with lemon slices and thyme sprigs. Cover the baking pan with foil and seal.
10 – Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour and 45 minutes.
11 – Transfer the chicken to a platter and accompany with the pan juices.

BUFFALO PASTRAMI AND PEACH SANDWICH WITH ORANGE AIOLI
This sandwich is terrific grilled, but also great as a cold sandwich. Just slice, stack and serve! (Makes 4 servings)
Ingredients

2 – packages 8 oz. Buffalo Pastrami
2 – Peaches, halved and pit removed
1 – Red Onion, peeled and sliced, lightly oiled
4 oz. – White Cheddar, or mild cheese
8 – slices Artisan Whole Grain Bread
1 – Tb. Butter
2 – Tb. Orange Marmalade
8 – Tb. Orange Aioli *see recipe below

Make Orange Aioli, and refrigerate until needed.

1 – Preheat gas grill to medium high heat. Ensure grill grid is clean.
2 – Divide Pastrami into 4 piles.
3 – Spray grill with non-stick spray (I don’t usually use grilling spray, but it works great for grilling fruit).
4 – Place the piled Buffalo Pastrami, Red Onion, and Peach halves on grill, and heat for 1½minutes on the first side. Close grill lid during cooking.
Turn all items over. Divide cheese, and place on top of hot Buffalo Pastrami. Place a dollop of orange marmalade on top of each onion slice. Brush one side of bread with butter and place on grill, butter side down. Close lid and continue to grill for 1 minute.
5 – Remove items as they are ready, bread should be light grilled, cheese should be melted, and onions should be soft.
6 – Remove peaches, pull skin off and slice each half in two.
7 – Layer Buffalo Pastrami with cheese, grilled peaches and red onion on non- grilled side of bread. Spread on Orange Aioli and place remaining grilled bread on top.
8 – Pass with additional Aioli, and serve with green salad.

Orange Aioli:

2 egg yolks, blend until pale
1 Tb. orange juice concentrate, at room temperature
½ tsp. dry mustard
½ tsp. each, salt & pepper
¼ tsp. cayenne pepper
¾ cup olive oil

1 – In blender mix egg yolks until pale.
2 – Add, orange juice concentrate, and spices. Puree until blended.
3 – With motor running slowly add olive oil.
4 – Adjust seasoning to your taste.

Pour Orange Aioli into glass container and refrigerate until needed.
