Chili-Espresso Rubbed Buffalo Steak

Do you LOVE steak but try to avoid it due to the abundance of growth hormones, steroids, and antibiotics that are injected into today’s livestock? Me too. That’s why I often choose buffalo meat over beef.  To start, buffalo meat is over 50% lower in fat than typical beef. Besides being way lower in fat, buffalo is also way more natural than most beef in the US.  90% of the buffalo farms in the United States are free-range and the animals consume a natural grass diet. Buffalo meat is free of antibiotics and growth hormones that are given to non-organic cattle. So if you have trouble finding organic, grass-fed beef, give buffalo a try! You won’t regret it!

Just another reason to indulge in the hearty, healthy meal!
