I recently ordered some delicious, ground, grass-fed bison meat from Grassfed Traditions' farm in Wisconsin. Holy cow! I mean " holy bison" is it delicious!
Technically, bison and buffalo are different; bison roam in North America and buffalo are from Africa and Asia. But, the early American settlers called bison “bufello” due to the similar appearance between the two animals, and the name "buffalo" stuck for the American variety. (source)
Hence, the clever name for this yummy dinner recipe: Buffaloaf!
Bison...buffalo, tomato...to-mah-to! ;-)
The recipe isn't the typical tomato-y meatloaf. It's more of a western BBQ flavor. It's a great manly-meal and tastes like you're eating dinner around a woodsy, warm, campfire.
Bison is a very lean meat, so in this recipe I mixed it with ground pastured pork sausage to make it just the right texture. No glutenous breadcrumbs in this recipe either! I substituted sprouted flax meal. You'd never notice the difference. It also is full of tasty vegetables to nourish your body.
Yes, you can use grass-fed beef instead of the bison meat in this recipe, but why not be adventurous and give bison a whirl? It's so nutritious! Compared to beef, buffalo/bison is higher in calcium, iron, magnesium, and protein. A single serving of buffalo can contribute up to 1/3 of daily requirements of protein, 1/3 of iron, 20% of phosphorous, 15% of vitamin B6, 30% of zinc, and 50% of selenium. (source)
