Kibbeh Nayyeh With Bison: Lebanese Spiced Raw Meat Dish

Kibbeh Nayyeh With Bison: Lebanese Spiced Raw Meat Dish

Middle Eastern food has always been one of my absolute favorite things to eat. The flavors are amazing and I always feel great afterwards. Kibbeh nayyeh is said to have been around since biblical times. If you’re interested in trying out eating meat raw for the first time, this is a great way to do it (tartare and carpaccio are delicious as well). Some claim that eating good quality raw meat has great health benefits. Kibbeh nayyeh is an experience to be savored, an intersection of ancient and modern that has been around for millenia yet has an upscale appeal in current times.

Kibbeh Nayyeh With Bison Lebanese Spiced Raw Meat Dish - Beck & Bulow

When making raw meat dishes like kibbeh nayyeh, it’s always imperative to use high quality, pasture raised meat that’s been kept frozen for 14 days. This ensures that the meat is free of bacteria. For kibbeh nayyeh, you can use ground bison meat or lean steaks like filet mignon. If you use another cut that has more fat, you’ll want to trim that off first. The fresh herbs really make a difference in the flavor, so be sure to use fresh rather than dried. The Lebanese seven spice blend, also known as baharat, can be found in some international or gourmet grocery stores. It’s also really simple to make at home. Simply mix one tablespoon each of allspice, coriander and cinnamon with one and a half tablespoons each of ground cloves, cumin and nutmeg. The extra is nice to have on hand for other cooking.

Free Range Bison, Raised The Way Nature Intended


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.


Kibbeh Nayyeh With Bison Lebanese Spiced Raw Meat Dish - Beck & Bulow

Ingredients:



  • 1 lb bison meat, kept frozen for 14 days from the time of butchering
  • 1 cup finely ground bulgur wheat
  • 1 shallot, minced
  • ⅓ large green bell pepper,
  • 15 fresh mint leaves
  • 10 fresh marjoram leaves
  • ½ teaspoon Lebanese 7 spice
  • ½ teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅔ teaspoon sea salt
  • Good quality extra virgin olive oil
  • Pita bread, chopped fresh mint leaves and toasted pine nuts for serving

Instructions:



  1. Thaw the frozen bison meat for about an hour and a half in the refrigerator. At this point, it should be about halfway thawed.
  2. Add the meat to a food processor along with the ground cinnamon and 5 ice cubes. Pulse the meat until it is ground very fine. Check that the meat is not becoming warm in between each pulse - if necessary, add more ice cubes to ensure that it stays cold. Place the meat in the refrigerator until you’re ready to mix with the other ingredients.
  3. Soak the bulgur in ice water for about 10 minutes, stirring a couple times. Drain into a strainer and press with a cheesecloth to press out as much water as possible. Set aside.
  4. Add the bell pepper, minced shallot, fresh herbs, sea salt, cayenne and Lebanese 7 spice to the food processor. Combine until finely chopped.
  5. Add the chilled meat to a large mixing bowl. Mix in the soaked bulgur wheat along with the mixture from the food processor. Use your hands to combine, taking a few minutes to ensure that everything is thoroughly and evenly incorporated.
  6. Transfer the kibbeh nayyeh to a medium sized serving dish and press it down into a mound or patty. Use a small knife to create a diamond shaped grid on top, or any other design you prefer.
  7. Garnish the kibbeh nayyeh with a drizzle of olive oil, chopped mint and toasted pine nuts. Enjoy immediately with warm pita bread.

How To Make Perfectly Seasoned Ground Bison Taco Meat

How To Make Perfectly Seasoned Ground Bison Taco Meat

Mastering perfectly seasoned taco meat can make a huge difference in your prowess at throwing together quick dinners in the kitchen. No longer will you rely on pre packaged taco seasoning full of excess salt and additives! The best part is, you can adjust this entirely to your tastes - in no time, you’ll be known far and wide for your amazing tacos. Pair with all of your favorite toppings to create the most delicious tacos you’ve ever had. I added green chile powder to mine for some extra kick, but if you can’t find that you can substitute jalapeno powder to taste or add in a little salsa verde instead. I chose to use our ground bison primal blend for this recipe, but you could use any ground meat you prefer or have on hand.

Our Bison Primal Burger Blend


This unique product is a specially formulated blend of ground bison meat, heart, liver and kidney. The organs are the most nutrient-rich part of the animal, and in ancient cultures this meat was prized and reserved for royalty. However, a lot of people in modern times have an aversion to eating organ meat. This is typically because they’ve never had it prepared correctly, and haven’t tried well-sourced offal. The primal blend is designed to take the intimidation factor out of consuming organ meat. It tastes essentially just like our ground bison, but with all of the added benefits of these nutritional treasure troves. Eaten plain with no seasoning, you may be able to detect a hint of organ flavor - but with seasonings or toppings, your taste buds will never know the difference.

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.


Free Range Bison, Raised The Way Nature Intended

Our elk live completely free range, roaming on 20,000 to 100,000 acre ranches. We source from two locations, one being the Rocky Mountains of the United States. The other source that fit our strict quality standards was an elk ranch in the pristine mountain valleys of New Zealand. They wander as they please, grazing and foraging as they engage in all of their natural instinctive behaviors. As with all of our meat, these animals are never administered hormones, antibiotics or steroids of any kind. Elk meat is some of the most delicious and healthy you can eat, considered by many to be the most heart healthy meat in existence. Chefs love using our elk for its delicate flavor and outstanding tenderness.

If you love homemade pizza, making homemade calzones should be next on your list. These delicious pockets of cheesy, meaty goodness will be a huge hit. You can make your own pizza dough if you prefer. Personally, I find that the freshly made versions at many grocery stores or pizza places are usually really good.

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.


The key to preparing delicious bison is not to overcook it. It always needs to be cooked less than you would typically cook the same cut of beef. When cooked too much, bison will become tough - we always recommend cooking to medium rare for the ultimate flavor and texture. From premium steaks to fajita meat to burgers, any dish you’re used to cooking with beef will be amazing when prepared with bison.

Homemade Pizza Calzones With Ground Bison And Fresh Herbs - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Place 2 large baking sheets in the oven before preheating to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Leave the baking sheets in while the oven heats up.
  2. Lightly flour a surface to place the pizza dough on. Cover the dough with plastic wrap. Leave covered for approximately 20 minutes.
  3. Heat one tablespoon of bison tallow in a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground bison to the skillet and cook just until brown. Use a wooden spoon to break up the meat into crumbles as it cooks. Take care not to overcook the bison meat.
  4. Stir the tomatoes into the meat, crushing them with the spoon as you do so. Add the minced garlic, basil, parsley, oregano, sea salt and freshly ground pepper to the skillet. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for 8-10 minutes. Take the skillet off the heat and set aside.
  5. Slice each pizza dough round into 4 pieces. Roll each section into its own circle, using a lightly floured surface to work on.
  6. Spread the meat mixture equally inside each calzone. Add ½ cup shredded cheese on top of each.
  7. Make an egg wash by whisking together the egg and water. Brush around the edges of each circle of dough, then fold over in half, pressing the edges together with your fingers or a fork. Brush the tops of the calzones with 2 tablespoons of melted bison tallow.
  8. Place the calzones on 2 sheets of parchment paper. Carefully pull the hot pans out of the oven so they’re accessible. Carefully place the sheets of parchment paper with the unbaked calzone on each baking sheet.
  9. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 18-20 minutes, until they’re golden brown. Swap the positions of the pans halfway through baking so they spend equal time on the top rack.
  10. Let the calzones rest for five minutes before serving. Enjoy immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.
