Grilled Bison Steak with Warm Shallot Vinaigrette

I really enjoy bison steaks and I traditionally eat them with just some salt, but I love shallots so I thought I would try this recipe. You can make this with regular old beef steak as well.

Preheat your grill and lets gather some ingredients.

You will need some Apple Cider Vinegar, shallots, mustard, parsley, Olive Oil, salt, pepper and a nice steak.

Slice the shallots and drop them in a small sauce pan with some olive oil.

Cook them on low for 10 minutes, stirring regularly. Get your steak on the grill and then we can make the vinaigrette.

Pour them into a food processor or blender and let it cool for a few minutes and while it cools, flip your steak. Give it a whirl to combine into a nice puree.

Add in the parsley, salt, pepper and the vinegar and give it another spin.

I plated the steak over some romaine lettuce leaves and then smeared it up with the vinaigrette. It was a very nice change from my usual steak topping and I think it complemented the steak instead of overpowering it, like I had feared. I didn't do a great job on presentation because I was darn hungry after smelling that steak grilling and with as rare as I make my steak I wanted to be sure it didn't get back up and run away! I hope your weather is nice enough to try this soon. Have a great weekend!!


  1. I am not brave enough to try bison - BUT what a wonderful idea for a steak topping... yum
