Hey everyone, usually on Wednesday’s I have a recipe from Wild Idea Buffalo to share with all of you. But today instead of a recipe I’m going to pass along some info and back ground on Wild Idea Buffalo. I’ve been ordering my Buffalo from Wild Idea for a few years now. I’ve tried other Buffalo or Bison but none can really compare to best tasting Buffalo there is that I have found! So here’s a little history and info on Wild Idea Buffalo! Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One!

 

 

 

 

The 34,000-acre Cheyenne River Ranch, home to Dan and Jill O’Brien, winds along the Cheyenne River and borders the Buffalo Gap National Grasslands and Pine Ridge Reservation. The 32,000-acre Conata Basin Ranch, managed by Doug Albertson, sits on the edge of the Conata Basin, with beautiful vistas of the Badlands National Park.

MISSION
“I have dedicated my life to preserving and restoring the Great Plains grasslands. These same principles are the foundation of Wild Idea Buffalo Company. By returning the bison to their native homeland, we’re not only re-wilding a threatened ecosystem, we are keeping prairies intact, with carbon stored safely underground, and producing the healthiest red meat on the planet.”

Dan O’Brien
Buffalo Rancher / Carbon Cowboy

BEYOND ORGANIC
Raising buffalo humanely has allowed us to supply conscientious consumers with the delicious, healthy, 100% grass-fed meat they demand. We have left no stone unturned in our effort to “go beyond organic.” We treat our buffalo and their prairie ecosystem with the respect and care that both deserve. Our buffalo are 100% grass-fed/grass-finished, 100% antibiotic, hormone & pesticide free, and 100% humanely harvested. Our model of raising buffalo leads to a superior source of protein that’s good for you, the environment, and the animals.

SUSTAINABLY RAISED
Our bison roam over large landscapes like their ancestors did, eating nothing but the grass beneath their feet. Their grazing patterns naturally regenerate the prairie, enhancing the level of biodiversity. The nutrient-dense prairie grasses they eat are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids, producing a delicious, healthy red meat that that the body needs for optimum health. Unlike most buffalo on the market today, Wild Idea Buffalo are never feedlot confined or finished on GMO grains.

We have left no stone unturned in our effort to “go beyond organic.” We treat our buffalo and their prairie ecosystem with the respect and care that both deserve.

MEET OUR FOUNDERS
Dan & Jill O’Brien created Wild Idea Buffalo Company in 1997 with the mission of preserving the Great Plains by returning buffalo to their native habitat. Many years have passed since their original “wild idea” that began the company, and today Wild Idea Buffalo Company, LLC continues to grow through our customers’ conscientious decisions about the quality and stewardship of the food they purchase.

BEST TASTING MEAT

The incredible flavor of Wild Idea Buffalo meat is the result of the animals’ lives being lived more naturally and without unnecessary human interference. Its clean, rich, slightly sweet taste has subtle notes of grass, sage, and we swear – sunshine. Our humane prairie harvests ensure that our buffalo are not exposed to any undue stress that would spoil the flavor of this natural meat. Our buffalo are given respect, dignity, and care throughout their lives. Our buffalo tastes better because they are raised better!

THE BEST MEAT FOR YOU
Wild Idea meat is lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than chicken or fish. It’s higher in protein than beef. Our 100% native grass-fed meat delivers 3.5x more antioxidant omega-3 fatty acids than grain-fed buffalo. Try the red meat that’s good for you!

BUFFALO RESTORE THE PRAIRIE
Prairie restoration is vital to our mission. Our land and animal management practices are as close to nature’s intentions as possible. By giving the buffalo room to roam, the Great Plains prairie is brought back to health. Grasses, forbs, and flowers flourish, providing a sustainable ecosystem for all life. Our vision of sweeping landscapes where the buffalo roam continues to grow, and we are now affiliated with other like-minded ranchers, including Native American ranchers and Nature Conservancy herds, positively impacting over 150,000 acres of grasslands.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI

May 1, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI. Made using Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with Cremini Mushrooms, Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano Cheese, Cream, and Green Onions. A Recipe sure to please all! You can find this recipe at Wild Idea Buffalo website where you can also purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage along with all the other Wild Idea Products. Well Enjoy the recipe and Make 2019 a Healthy One! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

SAUSAGE STUFFED RAVIOLI
A month ago I had the privilege of spending a couple of weeks in Italy. One of my favorite pasta dishes while I was there was a sausage and mushroom stuffed ravioli with sage butter. After about two weeks of being home I gave into my cravings and gave making homemade pasta another try. I won’t lie, it is a little tricky, but once you have the hang of it, it gets a little easier. The end result wasn’t as perfect as what I was served, but it was delicious and my family loved it. Note, I made a smaller batch, which made about 50 ravioli’s, but the recipe could easily be doubled. And, if made ahead it would be great for a crowd (but, I wouldn’t make it and have company on the same day).

Sausage Filling:
½ – pound Wild Idea Buffalo Italian Sausage
8 – ounces cremini mushrooms, stemmed and coarse chopped
1 – cup grated Pecorino Romano or Parmesano Reggiano cheese
2 – tablespoons cream
4 – green onions, coarse chopped
2 – teaspoons olive oil
2 – teaspoons butter
1 – teaspoon black pepper

Preparation:

1 – In a sauté pan over medium high heat, add olive oil and butter.
2 – Add mushrooms and sauté for about 5 minutes.
3 – Crumble the Buffalo Sausage into the pan and stir into the mushrooms. Sauté until cooked through, about 5 minutes.
4 – Remove the pan from heat and transfer the sausage to a food processor along with the cream. Pulse process until the mixture is incorporated.
5 – Add the cheese and pulse process again until incorporated.
6 – Scrape down the sides and along the bottom to incorporate any missed pieces and add the green onions. Flash process, leaving bits of green visible.
7 – Remove the blade and cover until you are ready to use. You can also make this ahead and refrigerate for a later use.
Pasta Dough:
1 – cup semolina flour *I blended this flour in my smoothie blender to make a little more fine.
1 – cup high protein flour or all-purpose flour +
1 – teaspoon salt
3 – eggs, beaten
1 – tablespoon olive oil +
1 – egg white, beaten

Salt for pasta water
Sage leaves and lemon wedges for garnish

Preparation:

1 – Place flour and salt in a mixing bowl and stir.
2 – Create an impression in the center of the flour and add the eggs and oil.
3 – Using a dough hook, mix the ingredients together. If too stiff, add a little cold water. Cover your mixer with a dishtowel to avoid flying dough.
4 – Scrape the dough off of the hook occassionally and continue to beat the dough for an additional 6 minutes on low to medium low speed.
5 – Remove the dough and place on a floured surface. Knead the dough a few times by hand and shape into a ball. Rub with a little oil and cover with plastic wrap and allow the dough to rest for 30 minutes.
6 – Cut your dough into manageable pieces. I cut mine into 8 pieces.
7 – Press each piece into a rectangular shape with your hand, before running it through a pasta machine or rolling it out by hand.
8 – Set your pasta machine to 2, so the dough will easily pass through, yet flatten out on the first time through. Reset the dial to 5 and send the flattened pieces through again, catching the sheets with your hand as it comes through the pasta machine and pulling it forward. The dough will be very fragile.
9 – Lay your pasta strips on a lightly floured surface.
Assembly Preparation:

* Starting half an inch form the end of a pasta strip place half a tablespoon of filling (or desired amount). Continue down the sheet every inch on half of the pasta sheets.
* Brush the egg whites between the sausage fillings.
* Place another sheet on top of the sausage-covered sheets and press down in between the fillings.
* Cut in between the fillings with a knife and seal the edges together with a fork. *At this point you can cover the ravioli’s, refrigerate and cook at a later time.
* Bring a large pot of cold water to a boil and add 2 tablespoons of salt as the water starts to bubble (it’s an Italian thing).
* Drop Ravioli’s into the pot, adding only as many as the pot will hold without crowding them. I did about 10 at a time. Boil for two minutes and remove with slotted spoon and place on a platter. Repeat until finished.
* To Serve: Place 4 to 5 Ravioli’s on each plate, and drizzle with Sage Butter. Garnish with fried sage leaves, slivers of cheese, and lemon.

* Sage Butter: In a saucepan over medium heat, add 1 – stick salted butter and 2 small bundles of fresh sage leaves or about 1/3 cup fresh sage leaves. Allow butter and leaves to simmer, stirring occasionally for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat if needed. Remove butter from heat until needed. Remove leaves and drizzle over the pasta.

Sunday’s Chicken Dinner Recipe – JILL’S ROAST HERITAGE CHICKEN

April 28, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Sunday's Chicken Dinner, Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Sunday’s Chicken Dinner Recipe is – JILL’S ROAST HERITAGE CHICKEN. The recipe is from the Wild Idea Buffalo website, that’s right Chicken not Buffalo! Wild Idea also sells Heritage Chicken from Emmer and Co. And they have one delicious and healthy Chicken Recipe for Chicken! This is a Dutch Oven Recipe, so how easy is that to prepare! You can find this recipe and purchase the Emmer & Co. Heritage Chicken along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and Make 2019 a Healthy One! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

JILL’S ROAST HERITAGE CHICKEN
After testing a few methods of roasting a Heritage Chicken, this method was hands down the winner. Although the flavor was always very good with other methods, I was looking for the method that would keep the meat juicy, but also get it close to fall off the bone tender.

Ingredients:

1 – 3# Emmer & Co. Heritage Chicken

1 – tablespoon + 1 teaspoon salt

1 – tablespoon baking powder (a tip from Emmer & Co.)

4 – tablespoons salted butter

1 – teaspoon black pepper

1 – teaspoon thyme leaves

1 – onion, orange, apple, or other sweet or savory food to fill the cavity

4 – stalks celery, halved

1 – onion, sliced

salt and pepper

1½ – cups water

Enameled Dutch Oven

Preparation:

1 – Rinse chicken and remove neck from cavity. (Reserve neck, adding to the pot for additional flavor or give to your favorite pet!) Blot the chicken dry with paper towels.
2 – Mix salt and baking powder together and gently rub all over the chicken. Refrigerate uncovered for 4 to 24 hours.
3 – Position top oven rack in the middle of the oven and preheat to 500°.
4 – Remove chicken from the refrigerator. Melt butter and add pepper, thyme and remaining teaspoon salt. Rub seasoned butter into the chicken skin and cavity. *The butter will adhere to the cold chicken without running off.
5 – Fill the cavity of the chicken with coarse chopped onion or orange halves, or other savory or sweet foods. This adds additional flavor and helps chicken cook more evenly.
6 – Place celery and onions in the bottom of the Dutch oven and place chicken breast side up on top of vegetables. Place the chicken in the oven and roast for 15 minutes.
7 – Add the water to the pot and cover and continue to cook at 500° for another 10 minutes.
*Optional: Before continuing with this step you can also turn your chicken over after initial roasting, so the breast is facing down. For the best browning, pile your vegetables to the center or add a few more to keep the breast out of the liquid.
8 – After 10 minutes, shut your oven off and leave the chicken in the oven for two hours. Do not open the door during this time.
9 – Remove chicken from the oven and transfer to a platter or cutting board. Chicken segments will release fairly easily or carve as desired. Season with a little salt and pepper.
10 – Strain juices from the pot and serve with the chicken or thicken to your liking for gravy.

Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week – Prairie Oysters /Buffalo Bull Fries

February 6, 2019 at 6:02 AM | Posted in Wild Idea Buffalo | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , ,

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.
