does anyone cook Buffalo (bison)?

We recieve commodities here on the reservation I live on, and one of the meats given is buffalo. has anyone cooked with it? Its actually not to bad. Very low in fat, and if purchased, its very inexpensive. Ive made several things- meatloaf, burgers, stew. I just wondered if anyone had any recipes to share. sometimes my family cannot tell the differance!

I don't but I told my hubby I would find a butcher in our area that has buffalo meat as he loves it. He's had buffalo burgers and fajitas in restaurants and just loves them. I hope someone has some recipes to share with you!

I have purchased both ground and a roast and fooled the family both times. It is delicious and much less fat than beef, but it is more expensive so I don't buy it too often. If you have a chance when it's on sale be sure to stock up and freeze some.

Buffalo roast

A couple of friends in S.D. sent my husband a buffalo roast for his blirthday. I cooked in the crockpot like I do all pot roast. Becuase it was so big I gave some to my son and his family and they could not tell the difference.

My family raises buffalo and we butcher periodically when we have to. The most important thing to remember about buffalo is that is virtually has no fat so you can not cook it as "well-done" as you would do steak. I have a small cookbook that we give out when we sell the meat that I would be happy to send you. If you are interested, you can email me directly and I could mail it to you.

Buffalo Meat

We used to use Buffalo meat 18 years a go. I farmer raised them in our local area. I used it just like beef only don't leave the stove. It isn't as greasy and will burn easily. Otherwise it is great.

I'd like to buy it more often, but it sure is expensive around here. Does anyone know of a site that has it for shipping like Omaha Steaks does?;-)

buffalo met

Check out It is the web site for Buffalo Crossing near Shelbyville Kentucky.
They raise buffalo, and serve them in their restaurant. I think they also sell the meat. They also have lots of other fun stuff.
They don't have any recipes on the web site, but might be able to offer you some.
