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.
