Ingredients

  • 1  Pound  ground bison
  • 2  Tablespoons  Worcestershire sauce

  • 1  Teaspoon  black pepper
  • Olive oil spray, to coat

Directions

Preheat grill. In large bowl combine all ingredients and form into 4 patties.

Lightly spray or coat the outside of the burgers with olive oil to prevent sticking to the grill surface.

Grill on a charcoal or gas grill on the first side until the juices just start to come through. Turn and cook to desired doneness (160 degrees internal temperature).

Let burgers rest for 5-10 minutes to allow the juices to settle back into the meat.

Serve on a bun with your favorite garnishes and condiments.

Bison Burger Shopping Tip

Most cattle are fed a diet of grass until they are sent to a feedlot – where they are finished on corn. When possible, choose beef from cattle that are “100% grass fed” - it will be more expensive, but better for your health.

Bison Burger Cooking Tip

The method used to cook beef is dependent on the cut. Cuts that are more tender, like filet mignon, should be cooked for a relatively short amount of time over high heat by grilling or sautéing, while less tender cuts, like brisket and short ribs, should be cooked for a longer time with lower heat by braising or stewing.
