Buffalo Shoulder Roast

I really enjoy eating buffalo and cooking a roast in the slow cooker is a simple way to prepare it.  The meat is flavorful and doesn’t require many spices when cooking.  Buffalo was an important part of paleolithic nutrition in North American hunter gatherers tribes for thousands of years, and lucky you, it can be a part of yours.  Enjoy this simple paleo recipe.

Just like my other crock pot roast recipes, I prefer to sear this roast in some bacon grease first.  It really adds to the flavor.  In a skillet, heat up about 2 tablespoons of bacon grease and sear all sides of the roast.  Transfer the roast to the slow cooker and pour the bacon grease over the top.

Add 1 cup of beef broth, 2 Tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce,  On top of the roast put: salt, pepper, 1 tablespoon dried thyme, 1 tablespoon diced garlic and one diced onion.


Set the slow cooker to low and let cook for 8 to 10 hours.  If desired, peel and cut up root vegetables or tubers and cook with the roast for the last couple of hours.


This is a simple recipe that is sure to produce a tender, tasty buffalo roast.  Be sure to use the cooking liquid, either spoon it over the sliced meat and vegetables or reduce it on the stove to make a gravy.
