Apple Cider Braised Bison Brisket With Stone Ground Mustard
So often you don’t find recipes for anything other than smoked brisket with barbecue sauce. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love to eat brisket prepared this way. But it’s always nice to mix it up, and I like the way that this brisket tastes more seasonal for the colder months. People often ask us how to prepare briskets without smoking them. You can prepare this flavorful cut of meat the same way you would pretty much any other slow cook item. This recipe simply uses a dutch oven on the stove top. You could also prepare it in the oven, Instant Pot, or crock pot.
Brisket Will Be Your New Favorite Cut Of Meat
The apple cider vinegar and bone broth give the brisket amazing flavor. With the stone ground mustard sauce drizzled over top, this is really a top notch way to enjoy bison brisket. I absolutely love the flavor of mustard. It’s important to choose a really good quality one, especially for something like this where it will be the main component of a sauce. This recipe could easily be halved, too. A great trick is to let the bison brisket partially thaw, just enough that you are able to cut it without too much trouble. Simply refreeze the other half of it for later use.
Free Range Bison That Roam Our Beautiful Ranch
Our bison live free range on 20,000 beautiful acres here in New Mexico, or roam freely on our carefully selected partner ranches. They are pasture raised and never administered any amount of hormones, steroids or antibiotics. These are powerful, strong animals that live essentially wild with minimal handling. There were once 60 million bison roaming North America, and we hope to see their numbers increase back to even 1 million during our lifetime. By increasing the demand for ethically sourced bison meat, we can help to bolster their population. The more people that want to purchase this nourishing and nutrient dense meat, the more farmers will be encouraged to raise bison. This directly helps to increase the number of herds which assists in providing genetic diversity for the population.
- 1 bison brisket, sliced in half
- 2 tablespoons bison tallow
- Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 4 large yellow onions, chopped
- ½ cup apple cider vinegar
- 3 cups bison bone broth
- 1 cup stone ground mustard
- ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit. Let the brisket sit at room temperature for 15-20 minutes before cooking. Slice the brisket in half so that each piece can fit into the dutch oven to sear.
- Heat the bison tallow in the dutch oven over medium heat. When hot, sear the brisket on all sides. Add more tallow to the pot as necessary. Season the seared brisket generously on all sides with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set the meat aside.
- Cook the chopped onions in the dutch oven until tender. Add the brisket back into the pot, facing the fatty side up. Pour in the apple cider vinegar and bone broth. Bring to a boil, increasing the heat if necessary. Reduce the heat and simmer for approximately 3-4 hours, or until the meat is so tender it’s falling apart.
- Remove the brisket from the pot and cover to keep warm.
- To make the sauce, skim any excess fat off the top of the cooking liquid from the dutch oven. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat and continue to cook until the liquid has thickened considerably. While the liquid is reducing, use a fork to whisk together the stone ground mustard and chopped fresh parsley. Add ¼ cup of the thickened liquid to the mixture and stir to combine.
- To serve, slice the brisket into thin slices against the grain. Spoon the thickened cooking liquid over the top, and serve with a generous drizzle of the stone ground mustard sauce.
