It’s good-ole-fashioned, stick to your ribs food. A good hunger remover after a big day. Approved by Wild Idea’s Harvest Crew!

¼ – cup mustard
½ – cup maple syrup
½ – cup strong coffee
2 – cans beans, rinsed
Green onions or shredded cheddar cheese

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy pot over medium high heat, heat oil and crumble in ground buffalo meat and add the onions, garlic and dry seasonings. Push the meat around in the pan breaking up the meat pieces and incorporating the spices. Cook until the meat is browned, about 10 minutes.
2 – Add the remaining ingredients and stir to incorporate. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to low and simmer until desired consistency is reached.

TACOS “BUFFALO STYLE”
There are many ways to put a taco together and I have tried to stay mostly authentically true. I like a little grease on the outside and a nice balance of simple ingredients on the inside. So good!

Ingredients: (makes 8 to 12 tacos based on tortilla size)

1 – 1 pound Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo Sausage
1 – tablespoon olive oil
¼ – cup water
OR:
1 – 1 pound Ground Buffalo
1 – tablespoon olive oil

¼ cup water

White corn or flour tortillas
Olive oil
4 – ounces asadero or other cheese, crumbled/shredded

Pico de gallo
Fresh lime
Other toppings of your choice

Preparation:

1 – In a skillet over medium high heat, heat olive oil and crumble in Chorizo or Ground Buffalo and seasoning. Push around the skillet breaking up the meat as it cooks in smallish pieces but not to where it is beady.
2 – Once browned add water and reduce the heat to low.
3 – In another skillet or on a flat top griddle over medium heat, swirl on a little oil.
4 – Place tortillas on griddle and leave just until the tortillas starts to puff up a bit. Flip the tortillas adding another drizzle of oil to the pan and top the warm side with a sprinkle of the crumbled cheese. Leave for about 45 seconds. Outside of tortilla will have light brown spots but will still be bendable.
5 – Remove and place in a tortilla holder forming a U shape (or you can make your own using foil).
6 – Divide the meat between your tortillas and top with pico de gallo

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS

April 29, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS. You’ll be using the Wild Idea Buffalo Burger and Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon to make the recipe. Plus you have 2 options for stuffing the Buffalo Burgers; Caramelized Vegetable and Mozzarella Stuffing or Mediterranean Stuffing. Either way you’ll have a winning Burger! You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Burgers and Bacon along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wide Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BEER BOTTLE BACON WRAPPED STUFFED BUFFALO BURGERS
My brother forwarded on a u-tube clip of the B.B.Q. Guys making Bacon Wrapped Beer Can Stuffed Burgers. For their recipe they used a half-pound of 80% lean ground beef, pork bacon, and then stuffed it with pulled pork, roast beef, and cheese! They had ribs grilling too, but that was just for snacking! No kidding. I thought to myself, “heart attack” and, “I bet using Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, and our 95% lean ground buffalo, that I could make a healthier, delicious version”. Below are two options that I think you will really enjoy, and its Paleo friendly!

Ingredients for Meat: (makes 3 burgers)

1 – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Burger
6 – strips Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – tablespoon olive oil
1 – bottle beer

Preparation for Meat:

1) Spread meat out onto a plate. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, and olive oil over the meat. Mix the seasoned meat together with your hands and portion into three even sized balls.

2) Transfer the balls of buffalo meat to a platter. Press a beer bottle into the center of the portioned meat and bring the meat that squishes out to the sides, up the sides of the bottle uniformly.

3) Wrap the meat with two pieces of Wild Idea Buffalo Bacon, overlapping the two pieces. Secure bacon with a couple of toothpicks.

4) Remove beer bottle, and stuff with one of the fillings below, pressing in lightly.

5) Pre-heat grill to medium high heat, around 450°. Insure grill grates are clean and oiled. Using a spatula transfer the burgers to the grill, turn the burners that they are directly under the burgers off, and drop the remaining lit burners that are to the sides or side of them to a medium low setting. This will drop your grill temperature to around 325°. Close lid and grill for about 12 minutes rotating burgers halfway through cooking. Move burgers over direct heat, and turn burner to high. Close lid and grill for about two minutes. Remove from grill and serve immediately.

I served the stuffed buffalo burgers with foil wrapped grilled potatoes, which kept all the hot cooking outside. Accompany with a green salad.

Filling Options:

Caramelized Vegetable and Mozzarella Stuffing (stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
8 – ounces crimmini mushrooms, steams removed and sliced
1 – medium sweet onion, chopped
2 – tablespoons butter
1 – tablespoon olive oil
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
2 – cloves garlic chopped
1/3 – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
4 – ounces mozzarella cheese, shredded

Preparation:

1) In a sauté pan over medium high heat, heat butter and olive oil. Add onions, mushrooms, salt, and pepper and sauté stirring occassionally, for about 25 minutes, or until nicely browned.

2) Add the garlic cloves and sundried tomatoes, stirring in to incorporate. Continue cooking for another 5 minutes.

3) Remove pan from heat and allow to come to come to room temperature.

4) Once cooled off, stir in shredded mozzarella cheese.

This is sooo good, you will be sneaking bites out of the pan! 🙂

Mediterranean Stuffing :(stuffs 3 burgers)

Ingredients:
1 – cup chopped spinach
¼ – cup pepperoncini, chopped
¼ – cup kalamata olives, chopped
¼ – cup julienned sun-dried tomatoes, chopped
¼ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
5 – ounces feta cheese, crumbled

Preparation: Mix all ingredients in bowl to incorporate.
This too is super good too!

SLOPPY JOE’S WITH SWEET CORN
This ground BBQ concoction has been called many things, including; Steam Burger, Tavern Sandwich, Spoon Burgers, Barbeque Sandwich and of course Sloppy Joe’s. Whatever you call it, they are delicious!
This hearty sandwich was a childhood favorite for simple suppers and was a huge treat for tailgate events (and still is)! My following recipe is a modified New York Times version, that one of our customers recommended. I modified it based on my own taste, as well as what I had on hand. Garnish it with homemade pickles and flash sautéed fresh sweet corn, for grown-up goodness, that kids will love too. *For best flavor profile, make a day ahead. Leftovers were even better!

1 – 1 lb. packages Wild Idea Ground Buffalo
2 – cloves garlic, minced
1 – teaspoon salt
1 – teaspoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon chili powder

½ – teaspoon smoked paprika
¼ – teaspoon cloves
½ – cup water
2 – cups tomato sauce
½ – cup ketchup
2 – tablespoons Worcestershire
1 – tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 – tablespoons Maple Syrup
¼ – cup fresh squeezed lemon juice, or other citrus

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy skillet over medium heat, heat oil and add onions. Cook the onions, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly caramelized. About 10 minutes.
2 – Increase your heat to medium high and crumble in the ground buffalo, and the garlic and dry spices. Cook the meat until browned, stirring occasionally, breaking up the larger pieces up with your spoon.
3 – Add the tomato sauce, ketchup, Worcestershire, mustard and syrup and stir to incorporate. Reduce your heat to low and simmer for 30 minutes, or until desired consistency is reached.
4 – Add the fresh squeezed lemon and season to taste.
5 – Serve on toasted buns and top with pickles and fresh sautéed sweet corn with green onions. So good!
