  • So interesting and helpful! I’ve been a customer for awhile now, and just love the meat. I especially love that the buffalo are hormone and antibiotic free, and I’m grateful for the humane field harvest.

    I used to live very near there, and seeing the landscape in the background brings back happy memories of its beauty.

  • You should tongs to turn those steaks and not a fork

  • Their meats are the best. There is a difference concerning how meat is raised and prepared. If you haven’t tried the meat, ‘get with it’.

  • Great videos. I just placed my fourth or fifth order in three years for your wonderful buffalo and am looking forward to trying the freezer technique on the steaks. My husband quit eating beef a number of year ago and now I make all my soups, stews, spaghetti, chili….. with ground buffalo or stew meat. We both learned that a 5 or 6 ounce steak is plenty filling as well as delicious.

  • We have ordered twice already and will again in the near future. The flavor and tenderness of all the steak cuts are wonderful. Straight forward recipes and techniques are easy to follow and of course the glass of wine is a must! Keep the video’s coming.

  • Great vid Jill, but I must say that you have much more patience than me! A simple seasoning on a room temp WIB steak, grill 2-3 mins each side and then foil wrap for 5 mins. That last part is the most difficult. Like I told Dan during our visit, my way around that is …I grill two steaks!!
    Been a customer of WIB for almost a year now and everything we have ordered has been delicious. Thanks to you, Dan and the whole WIB crew for the respectable, sustainable ranching practice you do!

  • Awesome videos. I would love to see Dan with you in furture videos.

  • After reading Dan’s book I couldn’t wait to try the bison from Wild Idea. I have been eating bison from a local store but I knew Wild Idea bison would be better. Wow, no comparison! Wild Idea bison is so tender, so juicy and just delicious. Im waiting for delivery of my second bundle. Thank you, Jill, for the cooking videos. Great job and I am anxious to try that freezer tip.

    Rita Bennett
  • Excellent videos!. 30 mins freeze who knew! Love your buffalo. Thank you for raising them the way you do!♡♡♡

  • I’m heading downstairs to the freezer to get out a couple of my WIB steaks. Your grilling tips were awesome but I’ve never pan seared a steak before and now I’m going to try. I felt like I could almost smell the aroma watching your video. Thanks for the cooking tips Jill. Your wine looked pretty delish too.

  • Thanks so much for the cooking tips and I will be making my first order very soon. I have ordered from a local Bison farm here in Ohio and can’t wait to compare the meats. I do love Bison and it’s hearty flavor. Loved your husbands book Buffalo For The Broken Heart.

  • I’m having an amazing Wild Idea day. Your cooking videos showed up in my mailbox while I was finishing Dan’s new Great Plains Bison book. The best part of the coincidence, however, is the fact that we actually have four Wild Idea buffalo fillets resting in the kitchen waiting to be grilled for dinner this evening!

  • Great instructional video!! Now that I know how to properly prepare & cook buffalo meat, you can look for my 1st order soon! Be sure to send me an order form ASAP!!!

  • Hi
    I am so angry that I did not stop at your ranch when I was in west working at Yellowstone Park!
    I think the series is very good! I love bison meat
    Keep it going
