    It was necessary for the emigrants to supplement their diet with
  whatever could be found along the trail. When buffalo meat was
  available, it was eaten boiled, fried, roasted, and dried. It proved
  to be a lifesaver in desperate times, and it was quite good besides.
  
    The great move to the frontier practically wiped out the buffalo.
  However, the animals have been saved from extinction and are now being
  farm-raised for food. Isn't that an interesting turn of events?
  
    The following stew recipe is quite delicious. It was given to me by
  Lorraine Czimer, of Czimer's Meat outside Chicago. They carry buffalo
  and a terrific assortment of other specialty meats, including bear.
  If you can track down a buffalo, you will like this dish. It is a bit
  more elaborate than would have been possible on the trail. The meat
  tastes a bit sweet and it is very good.
  
    Lightly salt and pepper the meat. Heat a large Dutch oven and add
  the oil. In two different batches, brown the meat on all sides. Add
  the remaining ingredients to the pan and stir well. Cook slowly,
  covered, over low heat.
  
    A good gravy should form in this dish. If you wish more gravy,
  Lorraine suggests you add a bit of water and some water-flour mixture
  for thickening. If the color ofthe gravy is too light, add some
  Kitchen Bouquet to taste.
  
    Cover the meat and bake at 325 for 1-1/2 hours, or until tender.
  
    Serve this with Bacon Corn Bread and Creamed Cornmeal Timbales (see
  recipes). They wouldn't have had timbales on the trail, but they sure
  are good with this stew.
