In this video, my son, Step, and I prepare buffalo tenderloin. Buffalo, or bison, is one of my favorite proteins for several reasons. First, buffalo is never raised with r-GBH, an artificial (genetically engineered) growth hormone, or antibiotics. Plus, because it is grass-fed…
Buffalo contains anti-inflammatory omega-3 fats, which we need for healthy heart function, and contains higher levels of beta-carotene, selenium and iron than conventionally raised beef. To boot, bison is very low in saturated fat and requires very little insulin for digestion.
As buffalo is so lean, be careful not to overcook it. If you prefer your bison medium to well done, cook it on lower heat settings for longer periods. While tenderloin is my favorite cut of buffalo, you can also find it as various steaks, roasts or burger in some grocery stores. Bison may also be purchased directly from suppliers. Give it a try!
