Tara O'Callaghan, manager at Local Burger, 714 Vermont, steam grills a Buffalo Dog. Buffalo, like elk, serves as a healthier alternative to beef, boasting fewer calories and fat per 100 grams than its bovine counterpart.
Very little visually distinguishes an elk burger like this one from Local Burger, 714 Vermont, from a beef patty. Comparatively, however, raw elk meat is leaner than raw, ground beef. Per 100 grams, elk meat has 111 calories and one gram of fat, whereas ground beef has 192 calories and 13 grams of fat.
For 100 grams of ground raw grass-fed buffalo meat, expect about 146 calories, 7 grams of fat and 20 grams of protein.
