First Round Pick Buffalo Beef

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Caramella Girl

As a member of a fantasy football league, I made this the night before our draft to have while "studying." It's delicious in a sandwich or in a lettuce wrap with some ranch or bleu cheese dressing on the side. It works as either an appetizer or a main dish. Enjoy!

This was fantastic! I made exactly as directed, using Cholula for the hot sauce. (Its just the brand of hot sauce we prefer -- it seems to have more of a nice flavor along with the heat than most other brands). We used the meat as a buffalo sloppy joe. I toasted the bread. It made for a delicious (and HOT!) sandwich. I can see so many uses for the meat though -- on nachos, in taco salads, on a pizza, etc. Thanks so much for posting. It's not too often that even my husband rates something 5 stars!! Made for Pick-A-Chef Fall 2009. :)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat and coat saucepan with olive oil, approx 1-2 tablespoons.
  2. Add beef to pan and brown, breaking up it but into small bits. Then, stir in spices.
  3. Make a well in the center of the beef and add butter. As butter starts to melt, start mixing with beef.
  4. Slowly stir in the hot sauce, before covering the pan with a lid. Next, lower the flame to allow the beef to simmer for about 5-10 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on it. You don't want to see the sauce burn off.
  5. Serve when ready.
