Ingredients

  • 2 Teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 Pounds bison short ribs
  • 1/2 Teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon black pepper
  • 3 Tablespoons minced shallots
  • 3 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 3 Tablespoons minced ginger
  • 2 Tablespoons red curry paste
  • 1 Cup water
  • 1 Cup coconut milk
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons fish sauce
  • 4 Cups basmati rice, cooked
  • 2 Tablespoons lime juice
  • Cilantro, for garnish

Directions

In a large Dutch oven, heat oil over medium-high heat. Pat short ribs dry and season with salt and pepper. Working in batches, sear short ribs on all sides, about 6-8 minutes. Once browned, remove ribs and place on a clean plate.

Add shallots, garlic, and ginger and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add red curry paste, water, coconut milk, sugar, and fish sauce. Place the short ribs back into the Dutch and bring to a simmer, cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook for 2 to 2½ hours, stirring every 30 minutes, until short ribs are tender.  Spoon short rib curry over basmati rice. Squeeze lime juice over curry and garnish with cilantro.

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.
