Buffalo steak is every bit as flavorful and hearty as beef but it tends to be a lot lower in fat. Buffalo is between 70 and 90% lower than beef in fat, and it also only has half the cholesterol. It is also higher in amino and omega acids, iron and protein. Buffalo is naturally resistant to disease and tends to grow quicker than domestic animals, so they do not require the growth hormones or antibiotics routinely given to beef cattle.
