  • Buffalo Pot Roast

    To quote from another thread:

    Here's one.

    3-4 lb buffalo pot roast;
    1 - 1lb bag of baby carrots (fresh not frozen);
    1 large onion, sliced;
    5 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1.5-2 in cubes;
    1 beef bullion cube;
    1 tsp Worchestershire sauce,
    1 tsp dried thyme or 2 tsp rubbed sage;
    1 tsp chopped garlic;
    kosher salt;

    Trim excess fat from the roast if needed. Rub with salt (because of the bullion and worchestershire sauce use less than you think you'll need), pepper, garlic, and herbs. (Kosher salt is recommended because it is un-iodized and helps avoid the problem of iodine from the salt discoloring the potatoes.)

    Place onions, 1/2 the carrots, and bullion cube in the bottom of a 5-6 qt crock pot. Add enough water to cover the bottom of the pot -- between 1/8-1/4" deep. (This will keep the veggies from burning before the juices begin to come out of the meat.) Place the roast on top of the veggies. Sprinkle with worchestershire sauce. Pack the rest of the veggies around the roast.

    Cook on high 4-6 hr depending on your crock pot. About a 1/2 hour before serving, remove most of the juices and reduce to about half volume, depending on the saltiness of juices. Thicken with flour for gravy.

          I buy mine from a buffalo ranch. Depending on the cut, it probably averages $6 - $6.50 a pound.

            Same here have to go to a special butcher shop and you will pay 8.00 LB for it.
            But there are ranches and you can order the stuff you have to put your order in on Monday and they deliver it on Thursday and they charge 10.00 I think now it's been awhile so it may have gone up. That’s really high but as a treat I do buy it for special occasions...I like your recipe I love to cook mine on an open wood fire...and you can do the pot thing it just gives it a smoky flavor that’s all...My son built a fire pit and he has this tripod he uses or any ol way ya want to cook it .... LOVE BUFFULO.. I wonder where all the hides go???

              You can get at least frozen patties in most chain markets around here. Sometimes a steak or two will show up.

              I get the non-frozen roasts, briskets, and steaks at a local yuppie mart -- next to the venison and Kobe beef, LOL. The steaks are sky high because game meat is all the rage right now. The brisket is high 'cause we're in TX and no man worth his belt buckle is going to miss a chance to spend a weekend with fire, smoke, beer, and big chunk of red meat. But, the pot roast and ground meat are lower than comparably lean cuts/grinds of beef.

              What I can't figure out is why the prices fluctuate so much week to week.

                Wow, I thought $5 was high. Cuz I won't pay $20 for a 4 pound roast. I guess I'm lucky living in WYO where we actually grow the stuff.
       is what it is...

                  I have to revise my estimate, it is more like $7 - $7.50 per pound. But, I buy organic, 100% grass fed, no big feedlots, etc.. And I buy in "bulk." I am an unrepentant carnivore!

                  I do the same thing with beef.

                  Chest freezers are great!
