Bison Short Ribs
2 vacuum sealed 6 piece packs, each piece 3 bones wide, 3 inches long (approximately 12 lbs.)
Short ribs are one of bison's most flavorful and under rated cuts. They are delicious when slow braised in a flavorful sauce.
Bison's flavor is often described as a richer version of beef with just a hint of sweetness. It is not gamey at all, and has a deeper red color and coarser grain than beef.
Like many game meats, bison meat is much healthier than conventional grain-fed beef. Its primary health benefits are its low fat content (less than a third as much fat as similar cuts of beef), lower cholesterol (less than skinless chicken) and high amount of iron. This makes it an ideal red meat choice for those concerned about eating heart healthy food.
RECIPES & TIPS
For best tenderness and flavor, set aside at least a few hours to braise bison short ribs low and slow.
In general, bison meat can be cooked as you would similar cuts of beef and substituted in beef recipes. Because it's so lean, it may cook more quickly than beef.
Bison pairs well with rich, rustic flavors like chile peppers, beer, cumin, red wine, rosemary, and sage.
