We're fans of protein in casa de Momtrends. Our diet consists of heaps of dark leafy greens and plenty of meat. Bison satisfies our cravings while also being lean--a great combination for this healthy-minded family. Recently, we were sent an assortment of bison products from to test and we're sharing our easy bison recipes.

Easy Bison Steak
2 Bison Steaks
pinch of salt
1 clove crushed garlic
1 tsp minced rosemary
1 tsp pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil

Toss the steaks into a ziploc bag with all the other ingredients. Squish the mixture around. Let marinade for about an hour in the fridge. Toss on a semi-hot grill (or under a broiler) and cook to your taste. Here are some cooking tips:

  • Because of the lack of marbling (that means fat), bison needs to be cooked at a lower temperature than that used for beef.
  • Move your broiler rack a step lower in your oven than you would use for beef. Be sure to shorten the cooking time.
  • Grill away from the center and use a slightly lower temp. than you would for a beef steak.

We served it with grilled portobello mushrooms and sautéed asparagus (which now that I think about it we should have grilled that too!).
