Do You Have a Buffalo in Your Kitchen Pantry?

We have a little sneak preview for you today: A buffalo stew recipe from the Lakota tribe in South Dakota, one of the areas in the United States where ChildFund works. Sponsor relations manager Lori Arrow sent us this recipe, one of several we’ll be bringing you later this month from Asia, Africa and the Americas. You can make wohanpi with beef, but buffalo’s usually leaner — and authentic to this original American Indian stew. In the old days, cooks would have added prairie turnips and blo (wild potatoes), too. In any case, this stew will help keep us warm as some of us (including everyone at ChildFund’s headquarters in Richmond, Virginia) prepare for winter precipitation.

 

Ingredients

  • 3 cups cooked cubed beef or buffalo meat
  • 6 cups beef broth
  • 3 medium potatoes (peeled and cubed)
  • 3 medium carrots (cut in 1/2-inch slices)
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

Add the browned meat to the broth in a stock pot. Add carrots, potatoes and Worcestershire sauce. Simmer over low heat for 45 minutes. If using buffalo meat, add the meat to the pot in the last 15 minutes of cooking. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
