I've found a new favorite meat. It took me a looooonnnngggg time to try it, but it tastes like a really great cut of beef to me. I buy it organic, just so you know. It's one of the only meats that I do buy organic, because I've heard that the flavor of buffalo can really be terrible or can be a real treat, depending on what's added to the meat during processing. An organic meat is the purest I can find, other than taking a buffalo down myself for supper. :)
Tonight, we've got buffalo and onions and a little heat to the dish. I think you're going to LOVE it. Here's the sharesies:
Running with the Buffalo (161 calories)
100g buffalo (100 calories)
1c mayan sweet onion (61 calories)
1/4t chili powder
1T beef bullion
2 1/2T southwest seasoning (divided)
1 1/2t cumin
3 cloves fresh garlic, minced (divided)
1t onion powder
salt & pepper to taste
In pan, add water, jalapeno, chili powder, bullion, 1 1/2T southwest seasoning, cumin, 1/2 the minced garlic, salt and pepper to taste. Bring to a boil. While the broth is heating, add buffalo, 1T southwest seasoning,
remaining garlic, onion powder, and a shake or two of salt & pepper to a bowl. Mix this well together and form 1" meatballs.
When broth is boiling, carefully add meatballs one at a time so as not to splash. Turn heat down to a simmer and let sit 10 minutes. Add onion and let simmer an additional 20 minutes, then serve hot.
The longer you simmer, the more the flavors mingle. Just don't let it simmer so long that the onions get mushy.
