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.

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.

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)
The best pizza dough! Recipe credit goes to, Peter Rienhart.

Ingredients:
4½ – cups high protein flour (I used half Kernza whole grain flour & half organic bread flour)

1¾ – teaspoon salt

1 – teaspoon quick yeast

2 – tablespoons olive oil

1¾ – cup water, very cold

Preparation:
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. Continue to mix for 6 minutes, stopping every two minutes to remove dough from the hook. Dust hands with flour and remove dough from mixer and place on flour dusted work surface. Knead dough for 1 to 2 minutes. Dough should spring back from touch. Divide into desired sizes and form into balls. Brush dough lightly with oil, place on lightly oiled baking sheet and cover loosely with saran or a plastic bag. Refrigerate for 8 hours or up to 3 days. Remove from refrigeration and allow to rest at room temperature for 4 hours. Proceed to Pizza instructions. *Dough can also be frozen for up to 3 months.
