Default Cooking Bison

I keep a cooking page on FB for a hobby. I know that a lot of you cook and eat different meats. A friend of the page (and a friend from childhood) has asked for tips or ideas for cooking bison. Does anyone have any info that I can share with him? He has never made it before. Thanks in advance!!

Depends on the cut, usually like cooking beef.

Just like any other wild game animal, trim off all the fat. Substitute wild game fat with beef or pork fat for moisture. Bison is very tasty when ground up with beef fat. Without the fat added, it is very lean and it gets dry very fast. Store bought bison should be mixed with fatty beef. Bison steaks are very tasty when marinated in an olive oil based marinade.

Let me know what he is wanting to do with the meat, and I can offer great suggestions.

Soak it in whole milk overnight in the fridge before cooking. And don't overcook it! It is like beef but done quicker. YOU DO NOT WANT WELL DONE WILD MEAT!!! It dries out and becomes inedible.

I marinate it in something oily, Italian dressing, or olive oil with vinegar and garlic or whatever. Anyone that says don't overcook it probably has- its easy to do.

Basically it's a leaner, drier version of beef. You certainly don't want to over cook it. Most of the larger cuts are better braised than roast. You can do steaks but certainly nothing over Medium and preferably Medium Rare. If making a stew you will need to cook it long and slow to be tender.
