How to Grill Buffalo Burgers – My First Taste
When I say “Buffalo”, I don’t mean the city, although I live very close to Buffalo!
I mean the wild animal roaming the plains of North America – well, they used to anyway.
Now, they’re farmed for their hide and meat.
Kenney and I decided to make Buffalo Burgers the other night after seeing that the price at Whole Foods Market was the same as the ground beef.
What’s wonderful about buffalo meat is that it’s very lean and tasty meat that’s not at all gamey when you buy it in stores.
They made some beautiful burgers for the grill.
How Did I Season Those Buffalo Burgers?
This time, I went pretty plain because I really wanted to enjoy the subtleties of the meat itself without anything changing the flavor.
I used some pepper, a tiny bit of sea salt and a little bit of freshly minced garlic.
Since it’s a lean meat, it doesn’t have much fat in it to keep it from sticking on your grill. So, be sure to use a non-stick cooking spray, olive oil or the like on the grates, or you can lightly coat the outside of the burgers with olive oil before putting them on the grill.
How Do You Keep Lean Meat Moist When Grilling?
I know lean meat is a fabulous thing, but it can get dry when you cook or grill it.
So, either cook it low and slow after first getting them a bit browned on the outside, or go ahead and put 1-2 tsp of softened butter or 1-2 tsp of olive oil in the bowl before mixing the burgers.
If you’re on a diet, go for the low and slow method making sure you spray your grill grates with non-stick cooking spray prior to putting the burgers on.
Our Buffalo Burgers were a success and we’ll start to incorporate more of it into our diet. It was tasty, lean and inexpensive!
Check out Whole Foods Market for great, organic buffalo meat.
