Bison Steak Recipe
One of the things I dislike most about being a military family is the constant moving. That’s what I’ve been doing this past week and it’s the reason for my absence. My husband has to attend a six-month-long school, so we reluctantly packed our belongings and traveled back to the eastern U.S. It’s not easy traveling across the U.S. with two cats and a dog that is afraid of everything.
However, we did make it to our destination in one piece and have finally unpacked and settled in. With that being said, I want to share with you an amazingly delicious and healthy recipe that was originally going to go up on my old blog but I hadn’t gotten around to posting it…
Have you ever had Bison?
Bison is healthier than beef, chicken, or pork because it has less fat and fewer calories. It’s the perfect choice for someone who is trying to eat a more nutritious diet.
How to cook bison steak
Bison can be tricky to cook, though. Because it is so lean it will cook much faster than beef. Never use high heat and keep a close eye on it to avoid overcooking. The meat will become tough if it’s overdone, so try to keep it anywhere from rare to medium.
It’s not necessary to marinate Bison. The meat has a subtle taste that is slightly sweet. However, I have found that marinating it for a minimum of six hours helps to keep the meat moist and tender during the cooking process.
This is a great recipe for your first time cooking bison steak! Serve these oven roasted sweet potatoes on the side for a delectable meal.
- Combine the vinegar, soy sauce, garlic, black pepper, onion powder, and cayenne pepper.
- Add the bison steaks to a shallow dish. Pour the marinade over the steaks, cover and refrigerate for 6 hours or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 350ºF. Remove the bison steaks from marinade, place on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake for 30 minutes. Allow the steaks to rest for 5 minutes before serving.
