Venture out and try buffalo! It’s lean, surprisingly tender and tastes nearly identical to beef with very little “gamey” flavor.

Because Federal law prohibits growth promotants and added hormones to be given to buffalo, it is a “clean” culinary choice. And it is almost always grass fed.

Buffalo can be found on some restaurant menus and is now available in grocery stores thanks to Maverick Ranch. The cuts are similar to beef and can be substituted for beef in most recipes.

Because buffalo meat is so lean, you can achieve the best results by cooking slowly at a low heat. Buffalo is higher in iron than beef and lower in fat and cholesterol than most cuts of beef and chicken — as well as some fish.
