    Hey Jude's Note:

    I'm always on the lookout for recipes using buffalo meat as there is a buffalo ranch near us at our place in N. Wisconsin. Here's one that I found that we really's quick and easy and perfect after a day of fishing when the husband, once again, catches no fish! Adapted from a Sunset recipe.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    • 2 large onions, chopped
    • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
    • 3/4 lb mushroom, thinly sliced
    • 1 lb ground buffalo meat or 1 lb extra lean ground beef
    • 2 (13 ounce) cans tomatillos
    • 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can hominy, drained
    • 1 (15 ounce) can baby corn, drained
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1 teaspoon dry oregano leaves
    • 5 small dried hot red chiles


    1. 1
      In a 5-6 quart pan over medium heat, combine onions and 1 tablespoon of the oil; stir often until onions are light golden and sweet to taste, about 20 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add mushrooms and stir occasionally until liquid evaporates, about 10 more minutes; remove from pan, set aside.
    3. 3
      Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan along with buffalo; stir frequently over high heat until meat is well browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes.
    4. 4
      Return onion mixture to pan along with tomatillos (break them up with a spoon) and their liquid; stir to free up the browned bits.
    5. 5
      Add hominy, corn, cilantro, oregano and chiles; bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally to blend flavors.
    6. 6
      If you're making this ahead of when you'll serve it, let it cool at this point then cover and refrigerate until the next day.
    7. 7
      Reheat to serve and REMOVE and discard the HOT CHILES before serving, unless you like getting a'jolt'.

      This recipe was a big hit in my household. In S. TX we have green tomatillo enchilada sauce, so I used that since it has a few spices, this was the only thing I did different. I will be making it again very, very soon.
