Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3 Tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 Cup finely diced yellow onion
  • 5 Pounds ground bison
  • 2 Cups crushed tomatoes
  • 1 Cup tomato juice
  • 2 Cups canned kidney beans
  • 2 Cups canned black beans
  • 3 Tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 Tablespoons salt
  • 3 Tablespoons pepper

Directions

Heat the vegetable oil in a large saucepot over medium heat. Cook the garlic and onion together until translucent. Add the bison, increase the heat to high, and continue to sauté until no pink remains in the meat. Add the crushed tomatoes and tomato juice and simmer for 1 hour. Add the remaining ingredients, and continue to simmer for 1 more hour. Adjust seasoning as needed.

Bison 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 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.
