Buffalo Stew (Tanka-Me-A-Lo)

Recipe by Chef Otaktay

This is Native Americans "beef stew" if you wanna called it that, It's very delicious and I think you would like it too, but finding buffalo meat might be a problem.

This stew is simple and delicious. I'm fortunate to live in Maine where buffalo stew meat is not hard to find. In general I halved this recipe because I had 1 pound of buffalo stew meat. I used 1 quart of water, 2 stalks of celery, 2 carrots, and the full 1 cup barley. Thanks, Chef Otaktay!
