How to make buffalo stew

A friend of mine is an advocate of the Paleo Diet. It recommends eating like our Stone Age ancestors – lean meats and fish, fresh fruits, and nonstarchy vegetables.

IMG_2424 Buffalo meat is one of the Paleo Diet's recommended meats.

So, since the fall harvest is here and I have lots of great vegetables available, I decided to try Buffalo Stew. It turned out really well. It was flavorful, a good paring with my garden vegetables.

Here’s my recipe:

Buffalo Stew

1 lb. buffalo meat, cut into cubes, or ground buffalo
4 tbs. olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
1 small potato, cubed
1 small parsnip or turnip, cubed
1 onion, chopped
4 celery stalks, chopped
3 large carrots, chopped
½ cup green beans, snapped
1-pint chicken stock or chicken broth
1/2 tbs. basil

  1. Mix the buffalo meat with salt and pepper. Brown the meat in large pan with the heated olive oil. When the meat is lightly browned, remove from the heat and place in a large saucepan. If you can’t find buffalo stew meat or a buffalo roast to cut up, you can use ground buffalo.
  2. Cook the cubed buffalo about 1 hour in the chicken stock/broth, which has been seasoned with salt, pepper, and basil.
  3. Add the vegetables to a saucepan. 
  4. Simmer about another half hour. If you use ground buffalo, you’ll only need to cook the buffalo and vegetables together for about 30 minutes total.
