Bison

Bison meat taste so good. It is becoming more and more popular especially since we just had a small meat shortage. Costco was selling ground Bison meat next to the empty Ground Beef section. Costco has been selling Bison for a few years now….but since the pandemic they seemed to have upped their stock. We order our Bison from a company that delivers it. But I bought a lot of the ground bison because sometimes I just like to fry it up with onions and garlic. So simple yet so flavorful.

Anyhow….I had more to say about the Bison/Meat topic but my nephew just called and wanted talking points on an interview he will be doing for a story on CNN. So my mind was all over the place on that one.

What kind of meat do you favor? Any special cuts….recipes?

  1. I have never eaten a Bison and by the look of them they could probably eat me!

    I like plain meat recipes with plenty of added flavour – usually made with tons of garlic and onion.

    Mince Lamb or Beef Potato Bake:

    1lb of mince Lamb/Beef.
    2 small onions finely chopped.
    Garlic to taste – I use 4-5 finely chopped cloves depending on their size.
    Tin chopped tomatoes.
    6 – 8 potatoes peeled and sliced thinly.
    2 Table spoons tomato puree.
    Salt & pepper.
    Lamb or Beef stock. Use the whole stock cube but reduce the water to half pint.

    Dry fry the mince with the onions and garlic until the meat is browned.
    Add the salt & pepper.
    Add the tomato puree.
    Add the chopped tomatoes.
    Add the stock.

    Reduce the cooking time to half or less (I cook it for about 10 minutes) it will cook thoroughly when transferred to the oven.

    Peel the potatoes and slice them thinly.

    Set the oven to gas mark 6 / 204 C.

    Lightly grease an ovenproof dish and pour the meat mixture into it.
    Cover the meat mixture evenly with the sliced potatoes making a decorative pattern. Lightly brush some oil over them with a sprinkling of salt & pepper.

    Bake in the oven for 30 – 40 minutes or until the potatoes have browned.

    Serve with your choice of vegetables.

    1. THIS is such an easy recipe. My household doesn’t eat lamb or goat. My sons prefer simple things. But we have a local steakhouse that serves Lamb Lollipops which I LOVE.

      I am going to copy this recipe to try when my other son comes home in a few weeks. He is the only son who loves new foods.
      And Bison are humongous and beautiful.

  2. The recipe is a base which can be easily adapted to personal taste. You could also add herbs if you like. A couple of swigs of Worcestershire sauce is also good.
