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.

1 – 8 oz. Buffalo Pepperoni, sliced

1 – cup + organic pizza sauce
12 – ounces fresh mozzarella, drained and sliced/shredded

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.

2 – tablespoons olive oil

1¾ – cup water, very cold

In mixing bowl using a dough hook, sift flour, salt and yeast together on medium low speed. Add olive oil and water, scraping down sides as needed.

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!

Buffalo Teres Major Steak and Sauteed Mushrooms w/ Baked Potato and Texas Light Toast

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.

I love Buffalo Meat, Bison if you prefer. For me my favorite “Comfort Food” is preparing a Buffalo 1/3 lb. Buffalo Burger from Wild Idea Buffalo!

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.
