Hello MFers! My fianc went on a hunt a couple of weekends ago and took down a buffalo. We just received the meat today, and I have to share with you all that it is absolutely DELICIOUS. There is nearly no fat at all. We cooked 5 patties for the group and there was nothing in the pan when we were through. It is considered one of the leanest meats, having less fat and more protein than both fish and chicken. Who knew? I ate it in a piece of iceberg lettuce in lieu of a bun and put some pico de gallo inside instead of any other condiments. I must say it was the best meal lean and green meal I have had since starting Medifast and definitely the most filling.....

We had Buffalo steaks for the first time the other night and were pretty happy I just had to get past that first mental picture..

When I ate Ostrich I was chowing down and all of a sudden those big brown eyes with long beautiful lashes popped in my head and after I got past the image I continued on...

Such a good idea! THanks!!! I have a freezer full of deer and Elk and although I really like it.. it's hard to make patties out of and is ... well... a bit dry if not in a sauce. I'm stoked to go get me some buffalo and have a lettuce burger... =) I've been dreaming about burgers...

Down 10lbs... must stay strong! =)..

I make a delicious meatloaf with ground bison. It's very simple - the ground bison, salt, pepper, garlic powder, about 1 T of egg substitute, 1 T of Ortega Thick and Chunky medium salsa and about 6 grams of grated cheese. I top it with about 1 t of ketchup and bake at 400 for about 35 minutes. Delicious with salad - baby romaine lettuce and sliced mushrooms topped with oil and vinegar. It's one of my L&G meals!..

I use buffalo for meatballs... we call them Buffalo Balls In my homemade veggie marinara and over shiritake noodles or spaghetti squash and I am content. (recipes in my blog)...

We made this last night......It was awesome. DH is really particular about pastas so I made spaghetti squash and he added his butter and cheese...Took the rest for his lunch at work today...

One of my stand-by, no-prep lean and green's is a frozen buffalo patty from Trader Joe's thrown on my contact grill. In less than 10 mins, I have a piping hot delicious meal! I eat it with a fork and a knife with mustard on the side as a condiment and with a simple salad for my green. So good and easy!.

My birthday's coming up and I'm thinking about going to this cool steakhouse nearby and trying their Bison Ribeye - it gets rave reviews...

Okay so I have a buffalo/bison question. Our local market carries bison steak and ground bison. I checked the packages carefully and the ground bison is 100%. The fat on the ground meat is so much higher. So if I use the ground meat is it a lean instead of leanest?..
