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.
- Preheat oven 350 F.
- 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.
- 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.
- Let rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
