ISO Ground Buffalo Recipes

We came across some ground buffalo at a good price this weekend so we couldn't pass it up.

Aside from Buffalo Burgers, what can we use it for? Google leads us to buffalo burgers and buffalo chicken marinade.

Any help would be greatly appreciated !

I would use it for anything that you would use ground beef for. It is supposed to be leaner, so a healthier option. You could include meatballs, kofta kebabs, cottage pie etc

Is a ground buffalo like a ground squirrel, only bigger?

Yup - you can use ground buffalo in any recipe that calls for ground beef. You just have to be aware that its leanness - just like with subbing in ground turkey or chicken - requires attention to adding more fat (like some olive oil) & to not overcooking.

No, it's more like a lateral step over from beef, as opposed to a lateral step over from a rat.

Just use it the same way you would use beef.

Makes great hamburgers, but you are aware of that. Also jerky if you have a dehydrator and get the jerky spice packet from the store.

We have and eat a lot of Bison use just like you would ground beef spaghetti, burritos, tacos, meat loaf (add some ground pork or it will be to dry) same with meat balls you want to add a little fatty meat to juice it up.
