Enterprising ranchers in Wyoming and the western United States are raising bison as a leaner alternative to beef, and the results are delicious and good for you. Bison meat is a great source of Omega 6 and Omega 3 fatty acids, and it works great on the grill.
Here’s a bison burger recipe that calls for:
- 2 pounds ground bison (buffalo)
- 2 Tbsp finely chopped fresh sage
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- 2 teaspoons black pepper
- ½ onion, finely chopped
- 2 Tbsp vegetable oil
- Smoky barbecue sauce
Pair the burgers with a Zonker Stout brewed by Snake River Brewing of Jackson, Wyoming (or a Guinness stout in case the Zonker is too hard to find) to bring the tastes of the Great Plains to your own outdoor kitchen.
