I’ve been waiting forever to make my bison. I figured this is a good time, seeing as how my iron is super low and I’m running out of food.
I wanted to make something that wouldn’t make the flavor of the meat. I was going to do meatloaf or burgers, but in the end I decided burgers would be faster, since I have one of those fancy George Foreman’s and all.
I was blown away by how good this bison was. It seriously just melts in your mouth. I think from now on I may only buy ground bison instead of beef. The flavor is so much cleaner than the ground beef I typically buy. It also helps that there is a lot less fat in bison (90% lean). Despite this, I was surprised just how much fat came off of them in the Foreman.
–in a bowl, combine 1 lb ground bison, 1 clove diced garlic, salt, pepper, ground mustard, and crushed red pepper
-mix and form into patties
-cook to medium rare
Spinach Celery Root Puree
-boil two handfuls of spinach and half a diced celery root
-mash with potato masher
-slice an onion thinly, heat a pan with olive oil, and let onions brown
This was so delicious. I didn’t want to add anything to it and ruin the taste of the beef, so that’s why I did it ‘deconstructed.’ The only thing I would un-add to the plate is the mustard. The meal didn’t need it.
To top it off, I had a piece of 82% dark chocolate for dessert 🙂
