Has anyone here made or eaten bison meat before? I recently tried some 100% bison hot dogs as well as I made pot roast using a bison chuck roast. I was happy with both of them.
I took my son to the "Badlands" of S Dakota.
A place there served "buffalo" hambugers. They were delish and much lower on fat than "beef."
The "plains" indians ate well before we killed most of the buffalo off.
We should be raising buffalo rather than cattle for consumption. The meat is high in protein, low in fat and delish!
Of course if we did, we'd add steroids to feed to make 'em bigger and not healthful.
We seem to screw up just about everythng we touch to make an xtra "buck!"
Bison is great tasting as long as it's not overcooked, which is easy to do. I also like elk...very tasty.
Not far from here (i.e., within about 30 miles) there is a very large bison herd. It was started by a cardiologist (or possibly a heart surgeon - I forget which) who wanted to be able to recommend to his patients a tasty source of nourishment that was low in fat, high in protein. I think the meat is more expensive than beef is - but then, poor health is even more expensive!!!
It has been a treat to me, through the years, to drive by the herd, watch it grow, watch the babies, and see how all are moved around from pasture to pasture. So far, no steroids that I know about! That would surely defeat the cardiologist's purpose.
But, to the original question - I haven't eaten any of it! I also eat very little beef.
I haven't had bison steak, but I buy bison burger at the store all the time. Its a little pricier than ground chuck; but worth it. We like it a lot.
I've had a bison burger- very nice
Though my king of meats at present is Osterich! Tasty and ultra low fat
Bison is a great alternative to beef, particularly because it is ordinarily raised healthier, meaning better taste. It's good.
Yup...I own 2 restaurants which both serve bison in various ways...burgers, steaks, meatloaf, meatballs and even a bolognese sauce. We also do elk, pheasant and other local Montana fare. Bison is awesome, flavorful and lean. It should never taste "gamey."
I love bison steak, bison burgers, bison stew, bison roast... It's one of my favorite meats.
We can get bison and elk meat here at the market, seems to be more available. There are some people near us who have about six of the animals-- (I think they are more pets than meat, though they may have raised some for the market.) It's always fun to drive by their ranch and see the animals.
I have cooked ground bison and it is good, but probably overcooked it a bit. As people have said, less fat means it can be a little dry if overdone.
My husband has a cousin in Canada who has been raising bison for meat for quite a few years.
