Has anyone tried this? Is it tasty? I found this “unusual meat” place that sells it at a local farmer’s market and I really want to try it.
Also, they sell water buffalo meat - I’ve never buffalo (first time ever I’ve even seen it sold here in London. What’s it like? Tasty, nutritional?
Finally, Bison meat - how’s this different from buffalo meat? The confusion arises from the interchangable term that people were using in Yellowstone Natinoal Park (some called em bison, some called em buffalo …)
Water buffalo are very different from buffalo/bison. Buffalo/bison are the large hairy animals found in the United States. Water buffalo are found in Asia, South America, and Africa.
I have never had water buffalo, but I eat buffalo/bison regularly. It is great. A red meat that is significantly leaner than beef so don’t overcook it. The same goes for ostrich. I’m doing this off the top of my head, but if I remember right ostrich has almost no fat so it can get dry if you cook it too much.
Thanks for the tip. I’m going to buy a steak each and try them. Now that I come to think of it, I’ve been around water buffalo as well as buffalo/bison. Looking forward to ostrich/buffalo meat.
Is it quite a common meat up there? Here in England I don’t think we even have bison, but I could be wrong.[/quote]
Bison is more common in the northern United States (Montana, North & South Dakota) because that is where they are raised. It is starting to become more common here in the south (Texas). Ground bison and bison steaks are showing up in more and more stores.
