Buffalo Burger Recipe


Is there any dish more American than the buffalo burger? This superbly filling take on the classic burger idea stems from the middle of the 1800's and the prevalence of the buffalo (also known as the American bison) and the wonderful taste of its very highly regarded meat.

With hunting now restricted the buffalo burger is something of a luxury among burgers, yet the standard, classic buffalo burger recipe is still used in burger bars and homes to this day and makes a welcome change from the usual hamburger meat.

One major advantage of buffalo meat is that it is incredibly lean. There is little fat on this magnificent animal, just muscle, and hence it is a very healthy meat for using in burgers.

In fact, a buffalo hamburger recipe may be the only one in which you usually add fat - in the form of butter - as opposed to taking it out as it cooks!

The concept of the buffalo burger is the same as usual - a packed cake of meat and onions, maybe garlic and peppers for a little spicy, plus perhaps a touch of herbs to bring out the flavor - and the richness of the meat means that many a recipe will tell you to add Worcester sauce to the mix for that added tangy flavor.

This really is a king among meats, yet you must cook it carefully and make sure it does not remain too dry.

Rich to the taste and favored by many who are looking for a macho and very heavy meal, buffalo burger recipe dishes have their roots firmly in the wild west, yet in the 21st century they still make a great deal of sense.

Easy to cook, healthy and a nice variation on the standard classic burger, this could be the one you bring out for your friends at that next barbecue!
