    Default A real friend

    A friend of mine gave me some stuff for doing some work for him. I thought
    it was elk, but it was labeled beef. There was also some halibut he caught
    in Alaska that was vacuum sealed and frozen. I took some burger, rib eyes,
    a roast, and some other cuts. Then I talked to him, and found out it is
    buffalo.

    The halibut was delicious, and I have a lot more. The buffalo will be
    interesting.

    Buffalo is gamey. Not as bad as venison, but just a bit pungent.

    I have had it several times, and find it tasteful. The best cut I had was
    at Mt. Rushmore Restaurant. But maybe it was the ambience of the moment.
    Nah, it was just a good buffalo steak. As I said, this should be
    interesting.

    I once asked about buffalo here and learned it is very lean. So take
    that into consideration when you decide what you want to do with it.

    There's a restaurant in the Wichita Mountains, near Lawton, OK, that
    serves buffalo meat. We had the buffalo burgers, and couldn't really
    tell any difference from regular hamburgers.

    I have used it instead of beef for a vegetable soup, and it was pretty good.
    Will see how it does for burger patties, and maybe some chili. This is the
    first steaks I have had of it in a very long time, as the market prices for
    buffalo steak and roast are a little spendy.

    He has a dang freezer FULL of the stuff. I'm going to try to get as much as
    I can. The halibut is about an inch thick at least, and are fairly large,
    about half a foot square to one foot square. I like to grill halibut, as it
    stays together pretty well. I use the metal basket that I use for trout,
    one of the folding kind. Works pretty good.

    Hey, nice to hear from you. Will be in contact in about three weeks when I
    complete this project and get back to work on the website. A couple of new
    developments, one with CBS ............. to share with you.

    Thanks! I'll be sure to let you know when mine is up and running. I
    plan to have a photography session this week with three models, if the
    timing works out for them.

    Artwork on a website is important. I need to make sure that it's all my
    own original efforts. <g>

    Interesting? That sounds as though you are leery about it.
    I've never cooked buffalo at home but quite a few Denver area
    restaurants serve it as their signature dish and I've had it cooked
    various ways. It has always been delicious, not at all gamey like elk,
    moose, venison. (I think elk has a sweet flavor that I don't associate
    with meat and don't particularly like.)

    When people warn you not to overcook it, listen to them. It is very
    lean meat and dries out if you cook it to well done.

    Enjoy and let us know whether you liked it.

    I do a bourguignon with bison stewing meat. We have a few butchers
    not far from here where we can buy bison, emu, ostrich...

    Buffalo is delicious. To me it's like very tasty beef.
