The quality of this grass-fed bison is what allows this recipe to be so simple. Beyond a seasoning of salt, pepper, and olive oil, the steak doesn't really need much else. As Andy Jacobi of Wild Idea Buffalo said, "The basic rule of thumb with buffalo is that you need to cook it at a lower heat and for less time than with beef." He suggests a simple marinade with soy sauce or balsamic vinegar and garlic, but "cooking them simply really yields delicious, sweet-tasting meat." 

We listened to Andy's advice and cooked this high-quality meat super simply — we were not disappointed.

  • One 10-ounce buffalo NY strip steak, preferably Wild Idea Buffalo
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper


Heat a grill to high heat or a charcoal grill. Rub the steak with the oil and generously salt and pepper it (more than you would think). Place on the hot grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes on each side or until the internal temperature reaches 130-135 degrees for medium rare.

Let rest for 5-10 minutes, then slice across the grain and serve immediately. 

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
