Lower cholesterol, lower fat red meat is thundering into stores.

Do you love beef, but worry about your waistline?

An unusual meat may offer a solution. It's called "beefalo." Ranchers have cross-bred beef-cows with bison.

They say nutritionally, it splits the difference between the two meats, so it has less fat, less cholesterol and fewer calories than beef.

People who've tried it day it's sweeter and milder than beef.

The cost of "beefalo" is.... a bit more than beef... and a bit less than bison.
