Recently, my family was asked to sample bison meat from High Plains Bison, and my initial thought was “What?” I hadn’t really heard of bison as a common food, but was very interested to learn more.
High Plains Bison sent us a variety pack of bison dogs, sausage and steak – guess what was for dinner in our house that night? We immediately threw the bison dogs and steak on the grill, very easy preparation. We gave my kids the bison dogs and didn’t let them know that they were eating something different from the hot dogs that they normally eat. They didn’t notice any difference and ate very happily, which was truly fantastic because dinner is generally not an easy time in our house. The sausage was good, although a bit spicy, but again, no noticeable difference from other sausage. The steak also was good, a little bit more chewy than our usual beef steak, but very tasty and noticeably less greasy and fatty.
Why bison? I did some research and found some interesting facts about bison and more specifically, High Plains Bison–
* Bison is naturally lower in cholesterol, sodium and fat than beef, chicken, pork or salmon,
* Bison is high in iron and one of the most nutrient-dense meats available, and
* High Plains Bison are raised on the plains & prairies and do not graze on hormones, antibiotics or fillers, resulting in an all natural product.
