D'Artagnan Buffalo Medallions
D?Artagnan buffalo are raised on vast pastures in the U.S and Canada to our exacting specifications on a 100% vegetarian diet, in a clean and natural environment, without the use of chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or steroids. These indige...nous animals, technically bison (though we use the more common name buffalo), are raised with minimal human interaction, and are left alone to graze as they have done for centuries. This is the original free-range, good-for-you red meat. Buffalo meat is quite lean ?leaner than beef, pork, turkey and even chicken?and never leaves a greasy taste in the mouth. This leanness allows it to cook quicker than beef and not shrink while cooking. Buffalo offers nutritionally-dense red meat with 25% to 30% more protein than beef, 25% less cholesterol and about half the calories. It is also high in iron content and possesses a sweet flavor. Lean but juicy, these thickly cut buffalo medallions are ideal for a simple every day dinner. Slightly sweeter than beef, they are delicious when simply seared and dressed with a red wine sauce, though we like to make Buffalo Rossini ? topping the medallions with foie gras and truffles. These medallions are also lovely when crusted with coarse black pepper in our Buffalo Steak Au Poivre recipe. As with any lean game meat, buffalo medallions are best prepared using lower temperatures than one would use for beef; cook them until rare or medium rare for the best flavor and texture. Whether grilling or pan searing, it?s best to first brush buffalo meat lightly with oil to prevent it from sticking. Keep an eye on the buffalo when coking for the first time, because it cooks much faster than beef as it has so little fat to protect it from the heat. 100% pasture raised with access to grain and hay No chemicals, hormones, antibiotics or steroids Sold in an uncooked state Package of 2 medallions, average 5 oz each Gluten-free read more
