Ingredients

For the bison steaks

  • Six 6-ounce bison sirloin steaks
  • 3 Tablespoons vegetable oil
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 2 Cups water
  • 3 Teaspoons beef base, or 5 beef bouillon cubes
  • One 8-ounce package baby carrots
  • 4 plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 Pound fresh green beans
  • One 8-ounce package of button mushrooms, cut in half

Directions

For the bison steaks

Sear bison steaks in a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed saucepan with vegetable oil over medium-high heat. Turn the bison steaks often to brown on all sides. Remove steaks when browned and season with salt and pepper. Add onions and brown them as well. Reduce heat to a simmer and add water and bouillon. Return steaks into onion mixture cover and simmer for 4 hours. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for an additional 2 hours or until the vegetables are cooked to your liking.

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.
