Bison tastes goooood


My bison burger was a rousing success! I defrosted the meat over night in the fridge, then mixed it with some scallions and shitake mushrooms. I added some freshly ground black pepper and sea salt, along with a couple of splashes of Worcestershire sauce.

I made a small patty and threw that bad boy on what we call the GFG (George Foreman Grill) for two minutes. I dressed it with tomato, brocolini sprouts, and a hearty slice of avocado on a half slice of whole wheat bread. It was marvelous - juicy, with a nice texture. I only wish I had thought ahead and made some baked sweet potato fries and had a cold crisp pickle.

I rounded off the meal with a large spinach salad (leaves eaten raw to maximize nutrients), but that's not really interesting.

I feel good about what I ate. I purchased from a top-quality local ranch that uses humane practices. Awesome! My next step is going to try some other bison cuts - hopefully they'll be just as tasty!

That looks good!
A friend brought over some ground yak (responsibly raised) and we made yak burgers. They were sooooo good.
