Recipe Summary test
Consider a buffalo prime rib roast as an alternative to beef. It looks and tastes much the same but the meat is much leaner. For juicy results, don't roast buffalo past medium-rare. For half roast, which weighs about 6 pounds and makes 6 to 8 servings, start checking for doneness after about 1 1/2 hours of roasting. (Order buffalo from Native Game Company; (800) 364-3007.)
