My first encounter with a bull was at our farm in upstate New York. We used to rent out land to local farmers to house livestock like horses and cows. The curious kid that I was, I hopped one of the fences along with my sister to play with the cows. We were petting the cows for a while until we heard screams back near the house; It was our mother screaming and flailing her arms. It turns out that the cows that are black and have horns are in fact bulls. I learned the importance of animal distinction that day. Along those lines, the new lean meat grazing our grocery store shelves and plastering our food magazines, bison, is often mistaken for buffalo. So watch what you eat or you might get pierced by a bull.
8oz lean buffalo steak or ground meat
2 rolls or bagels
cheese, lettuce, tomato, etc…
1. If you’re grinding your own meat, cut up the steak into 1″ by 1″ cubes and season with salt and pepper. Process through a meat grinder or powerful food processor.
2. Shape into 2 patties, packing as lightly as possible to keep the moisture in. Preheat a pan to medium-high. Spray with cooking spray and add the patties. Cover with a lid and cook for 3 minutes. Flip the burgers and cook for an additional 2 minutes, adding cheese, if desired, for the last 30 seconds of cook time.
3. Spread peanut sauce on one side of the roll (toast, if desired), top with the burger and any additional toppings.
