Water Buffalo Cooking

 

Health is Wealth ! 

From Alcides de Amorim Ramos (9/12/2014)

 

1.     Buffalo -- The Light Protein Solution for the 3rd Millennium.  

2.     A high proportion of premature adult deaths (35%) can be attributed to cardiovascular illnesses and diabetes.  

3.     Buffalo food products aid in the prevention of degenerative illnesses such as cancer, diabetes, free radicals, obesity, etc.  

4.     In order to classified as "light", a product must have 25% fewer calories  -- buffalo is actually "super light" protein because it has        55% fewer calories than ox (beef).  

5.     The concept of good nutrition has been forgotten. Hippocrates said 2-1/2 thousand years ago that 90% of human illnesses "come from        the mouth"; that's still true today.  

6.     When cooking buffalo meat, always apply high heat first to force a contraction of the channels and avoid dehydration.  After this heat       can be reduced to continue cooking.  Do not apply salt just prior to cooking as this pulls out juices and dehydrates the meat. Either   salt buffalo well in advance of cooking to let it absorb properly (which helps meat reabsorb moisture) or season the meat  after cooking.

 7.     Buffalo milk has two times more conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) than cows milk. CLA is an anticancer substance and acts on the     side        effects of obesity, atherosclerosis and diabetes.

 8.     Compared with cow's milk, buffalo milk makes nearly twice the amount of cheese and the cheese has 30% less cholesterol.

 9.     In the East, buffalo milk is used as a sexual stimulant (an aphrodisiac). 

10.  The biggest mistake made in education today is that teachers do not teach human nutrition to students.  "In the truth, we learn to better       feed our pigs than our children."

11.  After the nuclear accident in Chernobyl, in the old Soviet Union, buffalo milk was the food that more quickly eliminated radioactivity       residues, as so is considered a strategic food in the case of nuclear catastrophes.

12.  Cooperbúfalo. Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.  A cooperative effort to organize the production chain of the water buffalo       industry, working in production, transport, storage, processing and marketing of buffalo products and associated services.

13.  Water buffaloes -- Good for the pocket (economical), good for the heart (health), good for the planet (environment).

 

 

buffalo meatOne of the real secrets of cooking any lean meat is to rethink how you prepare - healthy - lean - red meat.

Fat acts as a insulator during cooking - adjust your cooking time for the amount of fat. Water Buffalo being " the leanest of the Lean" needs less cooking ! Allow 1/3 less cooking time !

Remember too -"slow and low" - cook at lower temperatures and further away from the heat .

 

Suggestions for different cuts:

  • Burgers : excellent grilled , broiled or on the range. Lightly rub with olive oil to help prevent drying. Spice as you like !
  • Bottom Round - best in stews , pot roast or chili !
  • Top Round , Sirloin Tip - oven roast, braise or grill. Try cooking 'wet' in a tasty - wine or other marinade. If roasting - use a meat thermometer. 150 degrees - internal - is juicy and delicious !
  • You'll be surprised how fast - "healthy meat" - cooks .
  • Steaks should be broiled or grilled - don't forget to sear - to a pink center / medium doneness for ideal - juicy cuts. Remember Steaks continue to "cook" after taking off grill -- so light pink might well be medium by the time it reaches the table.
