Beefalo cooks much quicker then regular beef since it has less fat to insulate the meat from the heat. This also means less shrinkage. Use your favorite beef recipes but do not overcook.

Beefalo cooks 20 to 30% faster than regular beef. A different fiber structure as well as low fat contribute to this factor. Well-done beefalo is light pink; rare is bright pink during cooking, but the pink disappears in a few minutes once removed from the heat. Always cook beefalo rarer than you cook regular beef.
Start beefalo in a hot pan or oven, turn to low and finish cooking. Use nonstick pans or nonstick sprays if necessary.
STEAKS (1-inch thick): Fry (in nonstick skillet - don't add fat) or grill for four minutes per side for medium to rare. Keep you eye on beefalo steaks. A steak may change from rare to medium in only one minute of cooking time.
Beefalo Burgers (thick patties): Cook 3-1/2 minutes per side for medium-rare.
Pot Roast: After searing on all sides and edges, cover and add liquid when cooking.
Roast: Use your meat thermometer, cooking at 350 degrees until the internal temperature of the roast reaches 140 to 150 degrees. If you don't have a meat thermometer, cook about two hours for a 4-pound roast.
Additional Hints: Beefalo continues cooking longer after it's removed from heat.
Don't overcook Beefalo.
Beefalo is tasty with little or no salt or pepper added. This way you get the full benefit of a natural flavor.
Cooking Guidelines
Cooking Time Due to the lower fat content, Beefalo beef will cook in from 1/3 to 1/2 the time of regular beef.
Frying Fry at a lower heat and use a little water as a starter to prevent sticking.
Grilling When grilling Beefalo, you can prevent overcooking by turning more frequently, by using a lower heat, and by raising your rack to the next higher level.
Roasting Roasting lean Beefalo beef requires keeping the oven temperature at the lower setting of 325 degrees. The roasting time needed will vary depending upon the size of the roast and your oven.
