Cooking with Bison

With Bison you go low and slow, due to the leanness of the meat.  We do not suggest cooking your meats over medium. We also suggest after cooking you trim off all fat, bison fat tends to be a little like chewing rubber.   

 

Grilling & Broiling

  • Use Medium Heat and cook 4-5 minutes per side, dependent on thickness.

 

Roasts

  • Use and uncovered pan with a rack in it

  • Season and add 1-2 cups of liquid in bottom of pan

  • Brown roast in a hot oven (500 degrees) for 30 minutes

  • Reduce Heat to 250 degrees and using a meat thermometer cook to 145 for medium rare and 155 for medium

  • Slice at a right angle to the grain of the meat and serve

 

Pot Roasts & Braising

  • Use a pan with a cover to create moist heat to cook the meat from the shoulder, brisket, round, or short ribs

  • Brown meat in small amount of oil

  • Simmer on top of stove or in at 300 degree oven
