50 Foods #41: American Buffalo

Origin: The Great Plains of America
Date: 19th century
Type: Large mammal

Also known as American bison had nearly become extinct in the 19th century due to excessive hunting. I tend to associate this animal with the Native Americans.

Would I eat/drink it?: My stomach is actually fine and I’ll like to keep it that way.

  1. I’ve never eaten buffalo, but I visited Yellowstone Park once and nearly got killed by a buffalo when I was picnicking with my family. We literally had to race to our car for safety. But I would be willing to eat one if I knew it wouldn’t harm the species’s (species’?) number as a whole.

  2. The first time I tried buffalo (and I’m trying hard to recall if I’ve ever had it since, but I don’t remember) I was quite young. It was at a restaurant with cute little western themed names. It did not occur to me that buffalo was actually something that people ate, I thought it was going to be a regular hamburger. It wasn’t an awful experience. I believe that it was leaner than beef, and I seem to recall it being a little bit drier, but that’s about it.
    I think what you’re discovering through my comments to this series is that I’ll try just about anything (although, I do have my limits too) and that there are only a few foods I don’t like. 😃

    1. Thank you for sharing, Mandie. Although I am not an adventurous eater, I love hearing others accounts of their adventurous eating! 😊
