Stews and braises have long been utilized as ways of getting the most out of more economical cuts of meat. Healthier and with more character than conventional beef stew meat, Bison stew meat is the perfect alternative for your slow-cooked favorites.

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.

Store bison stew meat in your freezer until you're ready to use them, then thaw as many packages as you need.
RECIPES & TIPS
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. Because bison is much higher in protein and also a little denser in texture, you’re likely to get full with smaller portions.
Bison stew meat makes excellent stews, chilies, and other braised dishes. Season the cubes of bison with salt, pepper, and any other desired spices. Consider making your stews and braises with rich, rustic flavors like chilies, beer, cumin, red wine, rosemary, and sage.
Sear stew meat on all sides in an oiled pan and add to other ingredients to create a stew or braise. Bring the liquid to a simmer, cover, and slow cook in the oven or on the stove top until tender.
