Bison Bonanza

We have a friend who raises Buffalo. He has an incredible ranch and a handsome herd. The other day we were able to get together for a delightful lunch. At the end of lunch, much to our amazement and delight, he presented us with a box full of bison meat! What a bonanza! We now have ground bison, bison tenderloin and roasts. What a gift!

This is a bountiful gift of health. Bison meat is so good for us. It is lean and not artificially infused with color (it naturally has a deep red coloring) or other preservatives. Can't find a better source of protein. Now you can find bison meat in your local grocery store. Not only at Whole Foods but also at Safeway and Costco.

I was so excited about our bounty that I went on line to seek out some bison-specific recipes. Here is what I found that I am looking forward to trying out:

General advice about bison and basic cooking tips

Bison Bolognese (stew)

Bison Burger

Middle Eastern Bison Meatballs

Bison Roast

We have already done a Bison Chili just by substituting the regular ground beef with bison ground meat. It was delicious! We are looking forward to trying out more ways to use Bison. So fun!
