Featured Big Tex Choice Award Finalists

Want to try something that is deep-friend, bacon-covered, battered, buttered and gift-wrapped in a package of fat and sugar? Check out today’s featured finalist for the 2015 Big Tex Choice Awards.

15_food blog_buffaloFried Beer Battered Buffalo: That’s right there’s going to be buffalo at the Fair! Straight out of the wide open spaces, this dish takes lean ground buffalo and gives it the Texas treatment – flavored with a Mesquite smoke and rolled in Pequin chili pepper, the meat is then crusted in crushed Corn Nuts® and dipped in a batter made from Shiner Bock Beer®, lightly dusted with bacon bits and served with a chipotle cream sauce, the Fried Beer-Battered Buffalo is a tiny taste of Texas.
