Bison = Buffalo right?
Yea trader joe's has buffalo and for a GREAT price. Frozen though. there are about 12 grams of fat for 46 grams of protein. I think it's reasonable on even some cutting diets.
Foreman grill is a great way to get these guys out fast, and remember to not cook them that long since it's leaner than normal burgers.
A grill pan is also another easy way, but double the time of the foreman since you are cooking on side at at time.
some suggestions on cooking. pour ample amounts of worcestershire sauce with minced garlic on it. Marinate overnight or for several hours. It makes it taste tons better. If you do these plain they will have a strange taste because of all the blood that comes out during cooking..
2lb ground buffalo for $7.99 at BJ's
8g of fat, 5g saturated, 24g protein per 4oz.
Still grain-fed but no hormones.
Buffalo and bison are very closely related, but they are different animals.
Buffalo' is the popular name often used to describe North American bison; however, this is a misnomer. In fact, buffalo are distinctly different animals from bison. Although both bison and buffalo belong to the same family, Bovidae, true 'buffalo' are native only to Africa and Asia.
Do any of you guys eat venison(deer)? It is super lean also and for me you cant beat the price. How much does a 12 gauge slug cost? You just pay for the processing but it is damn good and the steaks are super tender. Another good thing to try is goose breast. Cooks just like a steak.
sure do and love it ! I get it ground locally and make my own burgers ( bunless ) of course, or make meatloaf or pasta dishes on weekends. Damn it sure is good
i thought goose was pretty high in fat? not that my knowledge is good in that area. i know duck is high in fat.
the leanest meat i've ever seen is moose! yes, i had moose over christmas when the relatives flew in from alaska - they brought some with them. so lean, that ground moose doesn't hold together - no fat to bind the grounds, so you can't make burgers out of them - only sloppy joes! it felt pretty weird eating moose though.
I get it at our Kroger's. They only sell it occasionally. good stuff none the less.

I would love to eat more game, but I cant find it at a reasonable price; probably not searching hard enough but I'd love to get half a deer or moose
i live in western canada, and for some reason ground bison costs less then ground beef at the grocery store. i've only been buying it cause it was cheaper! if you have a dehydrator/oven, it makes killer jerky, and it tastes better than beef in my opinion.
