   • 1 pound ground buffalo meat
   • Salt and black pepper to taste
   • 4 hamburger buns, split in half

     Preheat barbecue grill. Divide ground buffalo meat into four patties, at least ½ inch thick. Place patties on hot grill (grill buffalo over a low charcoal heat, not in the flames). Cover barbecue with lid, open any vents, and cook 6 to 8 minutes; turn patties over and cook another 6 to 8 minutes. Season patties with salt and pepper. Lightly grill the inside of the buns. Remove patties and buns from grill; place patties on buns and serve with your favorite condiments.

    Note: The leanest grades of ground buffalo may require a little more moisture. Place a small amount of butter on the top of each patty while cooking.

    Makes 4 servings.


Today, the only place you will see buffalo roaming freely are on large ranches on the Plains and in the Rocky Mountain regions. The buffalo is no longer and endangered species, and buffalo ranchers are raising them by the thousands. Buffalo burgers taste great, and many people feel that buffalo is the most flavorful meat they have ever eaten. It has a sweeter and richer flavor than beef and is not gamey. Many consider this the meat of the new millenium.
