Store packages of ground bison in your freezer until you're ready to use them. For thawing tips, please read Safely Defrosting Frozen Food for Maximum Flavor.
Use ground bison in any recipe that calls for ground beef. It particularly makes great burgers.
When substituting bison for beef, be careful to take its faster cooking rate into account so it doesn’t overcook and dry out. Because bison is much higher in protein and also a little denser in texture, you’re likely to get full with smaller portions.
Bison pairs well with rich, rustic flavors like chile peppers, beer, cumin, red wine, rosemary, and sage.
