Many higher-end grocery stores now sell buffalo meat right along side beef in the butcher case. Buffalo has a mild, delicious flavor and has only half the cholesterol of beef. This garlic-studded buffalo roast recipe is a great way to enjoy this healthy meat.

What You'll Need

  • 4 lb boneless buffalo top-round roast
  • 2 cloves garlic, cut in quarters
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon coarse ground black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 5 slices of prosciutto or bacon

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven 350 F.
  2. Make 8 evenly spaced incisions with a parry knife, about 2 inches deep, in the roast. Push in the pieces of garlic as far as possible. Rub the roast with the oil and coat evenly with salt and pepper. Place in a roasting pan and drape over the prosciutto or bacon. You can use butcher twine to secure the meat on top for presentation purposes, but this won't affect the flavor.
  3. Roast the buffalo until a meat thermometer reads 130 F for medium rare. Buffalo meat has less fat than beef and may get dry if cooked beyond medium.
  1. Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
