Delicious, Warming Hungarian Goulash With Bison Stew Meat
Hungarian goulash is a richly spiced meat stew. The caraway seeds and paprika create an irresistible flavor. Our bison stew meat becomes so tender and delicious when slow cooked, it’s one of my absolute favorites. I love this goulash because it’s a great way to mix it up a little from your typical stew. It’s warming but not too spicy, satisfying and the leftovers taste even better. It will also make your entire house smell amazing while it’s cooking.
This dish has been around for centuries in Hungary. It originated with herdsman cooking meals for themselves in cauldrons on the plains. It became very popular in America in the early 1900’s thanks to Hungarian immigrants who shared recipes from their homeland. Goulash is the national dish of Hungary and is well known for its incorporation of paprika. This mild and slightly sweet chili powder is what gives goulash its hint of heat. Serve this tasty and nourishing stew with some crusty bread on the side to soak up all the goodness.
If You Like Beef, You’re Going To Love Bison
If you’ve never eaten bison before, you’re probably curious what it tastes like. The simple answer is that if you like the flavor of beef, you’re going to absolutely love bison. It’s very similar, but with a slightly sweeter taste. It’s naturally leaner and more tender. It has no “gamey” flavor whatsoever. Many customers tell us that once they try bison, they’re amazed at how delicious and versatile it is - any recipe that you’d typically use beef for, bison meat will taste great in.
We’re Passionate About Raising American Bison
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.
