I first heard about Buffalo Burgers from Matt’s blog and then my sister tried them out last week and absolutely raved about them. She told me that they tasted like your regular beef burger but are SO much better for you. Check out the stats:
So yesterday, after I left my sisters’ apartment in Philly, I went to whole foods and stocked up on some supplies:
I got 1.3 lbs of Ground Buffalo for my dad, mom, and myself. Into the buffalo I mixed a little bit of EVOO, salt, and pepper. I cooked the burgers on a grill pan that we have….of course you could also just go outside and grill them but it was drizzling out and I was much to lazy and incapable (I am still limping) of walking those long 200 meters to the grill haha. Make sure that when you cook the burgers (or cook any type of meat for that matter), NOT TO PUSH DOWN ON THEM OR FLIP THEM MORE THAN ONCE!
Served with Onions, Sprouts, and Tomato:
I made the burgers with Sauteed Carrots and String beans (EVOO and garlic)
and Old Bay Fries! To make these, I slice up baking potatoes to “matchstick” sized and place them in cool water and into the fridge (to help them get crispy in the oven). I then sprinkle old bay seasoning on top along with some EVOO and placed them in the oven @ 400 degrees. Make sure none of the fries are touching (this way they wont get soggy). Periodically check on the fries and move them around. They take about 45 minutes to cook.
ALL TOGETHA NOW!
Verdict? AWESOME!!! buffalo is my new favorite meat (or one of them anyway!). It truly tastes like a burger but its SOOO much healthier for you. this is a must try. Thanks Mary…and Matt!
