BISON For Dinner Anyone?

1 Oct

My Husband was from North Dakota so we spent at least one vacation per year visiting family in North and South Dakota over the past 20 years or so. I have gotten to see buffalo as they graze on the prairies and hills in Custer Park and the Theodore Roosevelt National Park. You drive thru the parks and often have to wait for a stubborn buffalo to move out of the road so we could continue on. I have had Buffalo Burgers several times on our travels and always enjoyed them. So when I was offered a chance to make a meal with Bison I signed up right away! Buffalo is a very lean meat, not very strong tasting but flavorful. I do not find it gamey tasting at all and I think if you didn’t tell anyone what it was, I don’t think they could guess that it was BISON!
