Grilled Bison with Stir Fried Veggies
It is time to fire up your grill or grill pan again!
This meal is very simple and not from a cook book so you will just have to pay attention!
My local store carries fresh bison from time to time. I really like the flavor, especially of the ground bison meat.
I also like how good it is for you. I only eat red meat about once a month if that, so when I do this is a great alternative.
Get your grill preheating and grab yourself some garlic.
Use as much as you like, one clove or 4, it doesn't matter. Mince it up or run it through your garlic press.
Get some olive oil and butter going in a fry pan.
Add the garlic and give it a stir. You want the heat about medium.
I season the meat with just salt, pepper and garlic powder. If you have a favorite grill seasoning or seasoned salt, you can use that. I get the meat on the grill and close up the lid. Back to the side dish.
I had some broccoli and cauliflower kicking around so I tossed that in the pan with the garlic. I then added just a splash of white wine...
Putting the lid on lets the veggies steam in the wine until they are cooked however you like them. I like mine leaning toward mushy.
I cook my steaks VERY rare. I only ate about half of the steak so you will see in a later post containing the leftovers just how rare I like it. The food police will probably come and arrest me.
The bison does not taste gamey and it is only slightly tougher than a regular steak. I really recommend it if you can get some because it is such a nice alternative to beef.
