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.

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a GRILLED 14 OZ. RIBEYE WITH GORGONZOLA PORT SAUCE. Using the always delicious and tender Wild Idea Buffalo – RIBEYE STEAK. Topped with a Grogonzola Port Sauce. Grilling instructions for the Ribeye and how to prepare the Gorgonzola Port Sauce are below. You can find this recipe or purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo – RIBEYE STEAK along with all the other Wild Idea products all at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. Enjoy and eat Healthy! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

GRILLED 14 OZ. RIBEYE WITH GORGONZOLA PORT SAUCE
14 oz. Grilled Ribeye Steaks – With the size of this steak you will want to increase your grilling time. Here’s what I did.

1) Rinse steak and pat dry. Rub generously with olive oil and season with salt and pepper, or seasonings of your choice.
2) Allow steak to rest at room temperature for an hour or two. Before grilling place the seasoned steak in the freezer for 20 minutes. *This is a new trick that I tested out and it works. It allows the outside and the inside to cook more uniformly. This is optional however – not necessary.
3) Insure your grill is clean and preheat to high, 500° to 550°.
4) Place steak on hottest part of grill, close the lid and grill for 3 minutes.
5) Turn steak and repeat above step
6) Turn steak again, placing on the grill for a nice scoring pattern and grill for an additional 2 minutes.
7) Remove the steak from the grill and cover with foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. This will give you a beautiful medium rare steak. *If making the Gorgonzola Port Sauce to serve with the steak, I sprinkled gorgonzola or blue cheese crumbles on top of scored side of steak, before covering it with foil.

Buffalo Steaks with Grogonzola Port Sauce
*Pan sear or grill steaks according to buffalo steak cooking instructions.

Ingredients:
2 – tablespoon butter
1 – tablespoon garlic clove, minced
1 – tablespoon crushed peppercorns
1/2 – cup Port
1/3 – cup Gorgonzola, crumbled
1/3 – cup heavy cream

Preparation:
1) In sauce pan over medium heat, melt butter
2) Add garlic and peppercorns, and saute for about 4 minutes
3) Deglaze the pan with the port.
4) Wisk in Gorgonzola and cream until well incorporated and allow the sauce to come to a gentle boil. Continue whisking until the sauce is to your desired consistency. *About 5 minutes.
5) Serve immediately or remove from heat, cover and reheat when needed. Delish!

ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE w/ Baked Fries

Today’s Menu: ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE w/ Baked Fries

 

 

To start my morning off I Poached an Egg and served it on a toasted slice of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread. And as always I had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its mostly cloudy and 82 degrees, with showers and thunderstorms moving in for the evening. Got the cart and leaf blower out and cleaned off the Deck and driveway areas. After Lunch I finally got around to finishing up touching up the shutters. For Dinner tonight I prepared ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE w/ Baked Fries.

 

 

 

I’m trying the Wild Idea Buffalo – English Roast tonight for Dinner. The Roast weighs 1.5 LBS, just the right size for a couple of people to make some delicious Roast Buffalo Sandwiches. There’s also a recipe for Chive Cream Cheese to top the sliced Roast Buffalo with. For the Roast I’ll need; Extra Light Olive Oil, Sea Salt, Black Pepper, Onion Powder, and Garlic Powder.

 

 

 

 

To make the Chive Cream Cheese I’ll need; an 8 oz. package Philadelphia Cream Cheese, chopped and trimmed green onions, and Caper Juice. Save the Capers for a topping for Sandwich. To prepare it I softened the cream cheese at room temperature and placed in food processor with the green onions and caper juice. Pulse until incorporated. Set aside until it was time to use it.

 

 

 

 

To prepare it; I had the English Roast in the freezer so I sat it in the fridge overnight to thaw. Next day I rinsed the Roast and pat dry. Rubbed Roast with the Extra Light Olive Oil, and Seasonings, cover and rest at room temperature for two hours prior to cooking. Then Pre-heat oven to 500°. Place prepped roast in a heavy pot or casserole, uncovered. Place in a hot oven, closing door quickly. Reduce heat to 475°and roast for 13 minutes at 475°. Shut the oven off and leave the roast in oven for 2½ hours. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR.

 

 

 

Next I got the Hoagie Buns ready. I’m using Kroger Brand 100% Whole Wheat Hoagie Rolls. I love these, always so fresh and they’re 160 calories and 28 carbs per roll. I spread the Chive Cream Cheese inside of the Roll.

 

 

 

 

 

I removed the Roast from the oven and what an aroma! I got the old Foster Brothers Knife out and sharpened it up. I love this old knife. Mom and Dad have had since they were married. I did some checking on the knife and it’s history and it was made as WW 2 ended, around 1945. So the knife is very old and still the best knife we have! With the knife sharpened I sliced the Roast thin. The Roast came out so tender, sliced real easy! Seasoned the slices with a pinch of Sea Salt.

 

 

 

I piled the Roast Buffalo into Hoagie Roll and sprinkled with the Capers. Wow what a Sandwich! The Roast Buffalo is just flat out mouth watering delicious! Moist and juicy, it’s just so flavorful. Plenty of leftovers for Sandwiches for Lunch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

To go with the Sandwich I baked some Fries. I’m using Alexia Organic Yukon Select Fries. Seasoned them with McCormick Grinder Sea Salt and Black Peppercorn Medley. Baked them at 425 degrees for 16 minutes. They bake up beautifully and seasoned just right, excellent Fry! Plus they are only 120 calories and 15 net carbs. For Dessert later a couple of slices of a Honey Crisp Apple.

 

 

 

 

ROAST BUFFALO SANDWICHES WITH CHIVE CREAM CHEESE

This is a great sandwich for casual meals or picnics. Or, use the same ingredients, slicing baguettes into ovals, for open-faced cocktail sandwiches for your next party! Note: If serving a smaller group, the 1.5# English Cut Roast works nicely. Half your other ingredients and reduce the “hot” cooking time to 9 minutes. You could also make these sandwiches with grilled steak meat too!

Ingredients: Makes 9 to 12 sandwiches
1 – 3 lb. Sirloin Tip Wild Idea Buffalo Roast (Or, 1.5# English Roast)
2 – tablespoons olive oil
1 – tablespoon sea salt, plus more for finish seasoning
1 – tablespoon black pepper
1 – teaspoon onion powder
1 – teaspoon garlic powder
1 – 8 oz. package cream cheese
8 – green onions, trimmed and chopped
¼ – cup caper juice
Capers
3 – baguettes

Preparation:

1) Rinse roast and pat dry. Rub roast with olive oil and seasonings, cover and rest at room temperature for two hours prior to cooking.

2) Pre-heat oven to 500°. Place prepped roast in a heavy pot or casserole, uncovered.

3) Place in a hot oven, closing door quickly. Reduce heat to 475°and roast for 13 minutes at 475°. Shut the oven off and leave the roast in oven for 2½ hours. DO NOT OPEN OVEN DOOR.

4) Soften the cream cheese at room temperature and place in food processor with the green onions and caper juice. Pulse until incorporated.

5) Cut the baguettes into 3 or 4 sandwiches and then slice into the side leaving one side of the bread hinged. Gently remove some of the inner soft bread.

6) Spread the chive cream cheese inside of the bread.

7) Remove roast from the oven and shave roast with a slicer or slice thinly with a knife. Season sliced meat with a pinch of sea salt. *You may have pieces or ends that you don’t use that are good to nibble on or to add to a soup.

8) Pile roast buffalo into bread and sprinkle with capers.

For a charming presentation, wrap in parchment and tie with butcher string. This helps with ease in transportation too. The sandwiches can be made in advance and refrigerated. Remove from the refrigerator an hour before serving.

PEPPERONI PIZZA
When the moon hit’s your eye like a big pizza pie that’s amore! According to Dan, there is only one kind of pizza – PEPPERONI! Dan is a purest and doesn’t care for unnecessary ingredients. I’m ok with that, as long as the ingredients aren’t questionable. Our in-house artisan chef has created a first rate pepperoni using 100% buffalo and organic ingredients. No nitrites or other scary ingredients, just pure pepperoni love! (Makes 3 medium pizzas)

Ingredients:
1 – 8 oz. Buffalo Pepperoni, sliced
1 – recipe pizza dough (below)
1 – cup + organic pizza sauce
12 – ounces fresh mozzarella, drained and sliced/shredded
4 – ounces Parmesan, freshly grated (about 1½ cups – not packed)
Cornmeal
Flour

Preparation:

1 – Arrange oven racks in the mid to lower part of the oven. Preheat oven or convection oven to 500°. Convection oven will automatically reset to 475°. Dust pizza pans or stones with cornmeal.
2 – Prepare dough recipe below as recommended. Place dough out on a lightly floured surface and roll out in a circular shape. Transfer the rolled dough carefully to the cornmeal dusted pizza pans. Push the dough around with your hands to reshape, rolling and pinching the outer perimeter of the dough for a thicker crusty edge.
3 – Spoon about a third cup of sauce (or as much or as little as you like) onto each pizza and spread around.
4 – Top each with about 4 ounces of mozzarella cheese, followed by equal portions of Wild Idea Buffalo Pepperoni, and finishing with the grated Parmesan.
5 – Place pies, one or two at a time in the oven and bake for 15 minutes or until crust is browned and toppings are bubbly.
6 – Remove from the oven and transfer to a cutting board. Allow to set for 5 minutes before cutting. Pure PEPPERONI goodness!
PIZZA DOUGH (makes 3 medium pies or 6 individual)

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is a ONION-MARINATED TRI-TIP STEAK. Made using the the always Delicious and Tender Wild Idea Buffalo Whole Tri-Tip Steak also included is a recipe for a flavorful Marinade that will also tenderize. You can find this recipe at the Wild Idea Buffalo website where you can also purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Whole Tri-Tip Steak or any of the Wild Idea Products. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2018! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

 

ONION-MARINATED TRI-TIP STEAK
Because the Tri-Tip cut is a bit milder in flavor and medium-tender to tender in texture, it’s a great choice to use with a flavorful marinade that will also tenderize. I served the grilled steak with a room temperature Bulgur Wheat Salad. The citrus notes complimented the savory, slightly sweet bison meat nicely, and worked out beautifully for a dinner party! (Makes 4 servings)

Ingredients:

1 16 oz. Whole Tri-Tip
½ onion, coarsely chopped
¼ cup hot water
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons cane sugar
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 teaspoon fish sauce
2 teaspoons olive oil
salt & pepper

Preparation:

1 – Rinse buffalo Tri-Tip, and pat dry with paper towels and place on a cutting board.
2 – Using a fine-tined fork held at an angle, pierce the steak several times on both sides.
3 – Place the steak in a gallon-sized plastic zip-lock bag or glass dish.
4 – In a food processor or blender, add the onion, water, garlic, salt, pepper, sugar, vinegar and fish sauce, and puree until smooth.
5 – Pour the onion marinade into the bag or dish and rub into the meat. Seal or cover and allow to rest at room temperature for two hours.
6 – Refrigerate and marinate for 24 hours.
7 – Remove from refrigerator and allow the steak in the marinade to come to room temperature, about two hours.
8 – Shake off marinade and wipe with a damp paper towel, removing any onion pieces.
9 – Preheat grill to 500°.
10 – Rub the steak with olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
11 – Place the steak over the hottest part of grill, close the grill lid and grill for 2 minutes. Rotate the steak on the same side and grill for an additional minute, closing the grill lid during cooking. Turn the steak over and grill for one more minute.
12 – Remove the steak from the grill and place on a cutting board and cover. Allow the steak to rest for 3 minutes before slicing.
13 – Slice the steak on the bias and divide slices onto 4 plates. Sprinkle with a little finishing salt before serving. Enjoy!

Today’s Menu: Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

 

 

For Breakfast this morning I prepared a favorite of mine. I made some Simply Potatoes Shredded Hash Browns, Heated up some Meijer Diced Ham, fried an Egg Sunnyside Up, made a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. I made a bed of the Hashbrowns in a bow and sprinkled some Sargento Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese. Next I put the Diced Ham over top the Hash Browns then put the Sunnyside Up Egg on to top it off. Cooler out and cloudy today, mid 50’s. Finished up the yard work and we have the yard looking good! A lot of hard work but well worth it. Later in the day went up to see Dad for a while. For Dinner tonight it’s Steak and Potato! I prepared an 8oz. Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast.

 

This is one of several Buffalo Steaks I ordered from Wild Idea Buffalo a while back. And this one is one my favorites, the Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET. The Steak is so flavorful and perhaps the most tender cuts of Buffalo. Of course all the Wild Idea Buffalo Steaks are this way! I had the Steak in the freezer so I sit it in the fridge overnight to thaw.

 

 

 

I pan fried it in Extra Light Olive Oil and seasoned it with a bit of Crushed Dry Thyme along with McCormick Grinders Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley. I fried it about 4 minutes on one side and about 3 1/2 minutes on the other side, it gets done very quickly because it’s so lean. The Fillet came out medium rare with a beautiful char on it! These Wild Idea Buffalo Teres Major Steaks are tender and delicious, love them! I also prepared some Sauteed Mushrooms to go with my Steak along with a sprinkle of Blue Cheese. I seasoned them with a Basil Pesto. I don’t think there’s a better partner for Steak than Mushrooms, except maybe a Baked Potato!

 


To go with the Steak I prepared a Baked Potato. I took a medium-sized Russet Potato and took a small knife and made small punctures all around the Potato. Put the Potato in a Microwavable Bowl and cooked for 7 minutes and 20 seconds on high heat. Served the Potato Seasoned with McCormick Grinders of Sea Salt and Peppercorn Medley and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter. Love a good Potato! I also baked a slice of the New York Bakery Light Texas Toast. For Dessert/Snack later a bowl of Skinny Pop – Pop Corn and a Coke Zero to drink.

 

 

 

 

Wild Idea Buffalo – 8 OZ. TERES MAJOR FILET

The Teres Major, also known as the Shoulder Tender, is second most tender cut on the animal. Cut from the blade of the shoulder within the primal chuck, it is considered to be of similar quality to the filet mignon with its mouth-watering flavor and tenderness.
