  • Hi Susan. I’m sorry you were confused. I’ve added the number it serves – which is up to 8. I also included cutting instructions as the last step. I hope that helps…. jill

  • I am very confused about this recipe: if it serves 5, it seems like you need 5 cast iron skillets. Doesn’t make sense. Has there been a mistake in the directions? Sounds interesting, but not the way it’s written. Thanks.

  • Being Native American, the Buffalo is special to me, including as food. Being married to a Mexican beauty. I am always trying to impress the Mother of my children. This recipe did it and will most likely wow her again on Mother’s Day!
    Thank God and all those who are bringing the buffalo back.
