A happy hour classic without the guilt! Exotic sliders are a trend that’s sweeping the nation’s culinary scene. Now you can impress your guests with sliders made from real ground bison meat (or keep them all for yourself).
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.
*Minimally Processed. No Artificial Ingredients.
RECIPES & TIPS
Treat bison sliders as you would beef sliders. Bison’s less-fatty flavor means they can be paired with cheeses and bacons without overwhelming the taster’s palette with grease. Of course, you can leave such things off for a more health-conscious slider.
Though this meat has been formed into patties for your convenience, it could also be broken up and used as ground bison in ground meat recipes like meatloaf, meatballs, etc.
In general, bison meat can be cooked as you would similar cuts of beef and substituted in beef recipes. The only important consideration is to take its faster cooking rate into account so it doesn’t overcook and dry out.
Bison pairs well with rich, rustic flavors like chile peppers, beer, cumin, red wine, rosemary, and sage.
Recommended Internal Cooking Temp:
The USDA recommends cooking all ground meats to an internal temperature of 160°F.
