How we discovered Bison meat?

I love a good burger, especially this bison burger.  My oldest son, Casey, did a research paper on bison a few years ago.  He discovered how much better bison was for you than beef.  Bison is leaner, has more protein, less fat, and fewer calories than beef.  Casey convinced me that we needed to try bison.  Since then, he has prepared bison burgers and even bison steaks for our family.  We all loved it.  I noticed right away that Buffalo meat is very juicy.  Bison meat is very healthy but a little more expensive than beef.  I try to purchase Buffalo as much as I can, especially since Casey is so willing to cook it.  He cooks an amazing bison steak and bison burgers.

Bison Facts

Many refer to bison as “America’s original red meat.”  This statement is true, but we almost lost this magnificent animal to extinction in the late 1800’s before the great Teddy Roosevelt saved them.  Bison has made the comeback from fewer than 1000 animals to around 500,000 today.  The number of Bison is increasing because people are discovering their great taste and health benefits.  I believe more people would eat bison if they knew this fact.  If you want to see the interesting nutritional facts of bison, discover its ecological benefits, and learn about its humane production visit the National Bison Association website. 

BISON COOKING TIPS:

When preparing bison, DO NOT OVERCOOK THE MEAT.  Overcooking bison will make it extremely tough just like beef can get.  If you cook it medium (or a little less) to medium rare, the resulting bison is juicy.

You want the flavor of the bison meat to shine.  You don’t even need to bother with a marinade.Bison Burgers pattied
