"Slow And Low"
The lower content of fat insures that buffalo meat will cook faster. Since fat acts as an insulator, heat must first penetrate this insulation layer before the cooking process of the protein begins. Remember “SLOW AND LOW”, so you do not dry out the meat. With this in mind, you can substitute buffalo in any of your favorite red meat recipes. Listed below are a few more basic cooking tips.

• When broiling buffalo meat, move the broiler rack to the lowest position.
• When grilling use a higher rack, and a lower temperature setting.
• Cook buffalo roast weighing 3-4 lbs. at 225 F. for 8-10 hours in a conventional oven. Use a covered pot. Buffalo roast will taste great when cooked beyond 10 hours, but baste periodically.
• Buffalo burger is also lean. Just remember slow and low. If you are using a frying pan, set the temperature at medium-low.

Bison Chili
1 pound Ground Bison

1 15oz. can pinto beans, rinsed and drained
2 16oz. cans peeled tomatoes
1/2 cup water
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

In a non-stick skillet, saute the Ground Bison and onion until the meat is browned and the onion is tender. Add the pinto beans, tomatoes, water and seasonings. Cover and simmer for 1 hour, adding more water if chili becomes too thick. Add chopped cilantro and simmer an additional 10 minutes.

Tips: Steaks recommended for grilling/barbecuing include Rib Eyes, T-Bones, and New York Strips. Lesser quality Bison steaks are not recommended for grilling unless they have been marinated. Using a fork to turn steaks punctures the meat, so use tongs for turning and keep those wonderful juices in the steak. Bison steaks taste best when grilled to rare or medium (still pink in the center). Cooking time is important to avoid overcooking.
