I'm so glad I found US Wellness Meats grass-fed bison. Imagine my delight when I learned these bison are 100% grass-fed and grass-finished, they are not fed any antibiotics or hormones, and they do not use any fertilizer or pesticides on their pastures. I've put together a few bison recipes using bison in lieu of beef.

In case you aren't convinced to try it, here's why I love cooking bison:

  • It’s lean – so you don’t feel guilty about eating it. (Bison actually contains more protein in relation to calories than beef.)
  • It’s incredibly moist and tender.
  • It’s a crowd pleaser!

Bison Recipes: Burgers and Bolognese

Bison Gorgonzola Burgers

1 lb. ground bison
1/8 cup Gorgonzola cheese (can substitute with any other cheese)
1/8 cup Worcestershire sauce
Garlic powder
Sea salt

Mix all above ingredients with your hands.  Divide meat into four parts and shape patties.  Cook on a skillet (we love the American-made Lodge Cast Iron grill pan) until you can no longer see any pink meat. While the burgers are cooking, sauté mushrooms, onions and shallots in butter until they turn golden brown.  Serve these sautéed vegetables on top of the burger. Serve the burgers with sliced avocado on a brioche roll.  Enjoy!
