Sometimes, the best meals come out of necessity. You know, those times when you have to whip up something with a particular item, and use what's available in the fridge. Recently, me and my beloved mate acquired some bison patties. Yup, bison patties---as in buffalo meat. We've become partisans of bison because of its nutritious element and minuscule cholesterol content. But this recipe I conjured up can be done with beef , turkey, chicken or lamb patties. Or you can Take some hamburger meat and cook it the same way.
QUICK MEAT PATTIES IN MUSTARD SAUCE
4 patties, beef or other (see above)
Salt and black ground pepper to taste
3 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 cup sour cream
4 tablespoons mustard (if you have Dijon, great. If not, any good mustard will do)
1. Season patties with salt and pepper on both sides.
2. Heat oil in a medium skillet. Add patties and cook over medium heat about 1-2 minutes on each side. The cooking time will vary depending on type of meat used. Bison patties take less time to cook than regular burger patties. Just trust your judgement.
3. Stir in sour cream and mustard. Cover and cook until sauce is heated (about 1minute longer).
4. Serve over rice, boiled potatoes, kasha, or couscous.
Yield: 2 servings for big eaters; or 4 servings for regular eaters.
