Cooking & Serving
Buffalo meat is quite lean –leaner than beef, pork, turkey and even chicken—and never leaves a greasy taste in the mouth. This leanness allows it to cook quicker than beef, and not shrink much while cooking.
The meat of the American bison has between 15 and 30% more protein and 25% less cholesterol than beef. In a 3 ½ –ounce serving of buffalo sirloin, there are only 3 grams of fat (compared with 14 grams in beef sirloin), and about half the calories (120 versus 210).
Ground buffalo meat can take the place of ground beef in any recipe, and is ideal for burgers, lasagna, chili and meatloaf. Just keep in mind that buffalo is leaner than beef, and requires lower cooking temperatures. Cook buffalo burgers rare to medium rare and coat them with a thin layer of oil before placing them on the cooler part of the grill.
