Buffalo Burgers

Our organic/health grocery store Green Acres Market carries frozen buffalo meat. We bought some on our last expedition there and I used it to make burgers. I did my usual recipe and put them on the grill. The burgers turned out perfectly and the taste was great. I have read that buffalo has many health benefits. Not only does it have 70% to 90% less fat compared to beef, on average it has 50% less cholesterol. And on top of that, it is higher in protein, iron and all the omega and amino acids. The taste is less greasy and does not have a gamy taste like grass fed beef does. The buffalo that Green Acres sells comes from K.C. Buffalo Co. 2201 E. 203rd St. Belton , MO 64012. Their web address is www.kcbuffalo.com . It costs more than beef, coming in at 5.59 a pound, but the health benefits certainly out weigh the cost in my opinion. I will continue to buy buffalo as long as the grocery store carries it.

A good recipe to try for Buffalo Burgers is to add about a tablespoon of olive oil and around 2 tbl of good balsamic to 1 lb of buffalo. Cook on a lower temp to keep the meat moist and don't overcook. Another good addition on top is caramelized onions. A quick cheat for making them is to heat some olive oil and put in the onions and cover. Stir often until you get the color you want (medium high heat)then add about a 1/2 or 1 tbl spoon of sugar. Mix until the color is right.
