Apple Cider Braised Bison Brisket With Stone Ground Mustard

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.

Apple Cider Braised Bison Brisket With Stone Ground Mustard - Beck & Bulow

Ingredients:



  • 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

Instructions:



  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Remove the brisket from the pot and cover to keep warm.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

Middle Eastern Bison Sirloin Steak With Za’Atar & Tahini

Middle Eastern Bison Sirloin Steak With Za’Atar & Tahini

I love the flavors of Middle Eastern food, and Za’atar seasoning makes it easy to give any cut of meat a richly spiced, seared crust that tastes amazing. Za’atar spice is the perfect balance of flavors, combining herbs like oregano and thyme with tangy sumac and rich, nutty sesame seeds. If you’ve never tried cooking with it before, don’t be surprised if you find yourself wanting to put it on everything. It’s fairly easy to find in stores, but making your own is simple to do (and often tastier). There’s lots of great recipes available online to choose from for making Za’atar. I’d suggest making a big batch - these flavors are addictive!

Middle Eastern Bison Sirloin Steak With Za’Atar & Tahini - Beck & Bulow

Bison top sirloin steak is the perfect choice for this quick and easy recipe. Just steam some rice beforehand, and if you want, sauté some vegetables to go on top. The tahini sauce is so delicious, you’ll want to put it on absolutely everything. Chopping the steak into bite-sized pieces makes them cook very quickly, and we always recommend cooking bison less than you would beef. A couple minutes is all it will take to have these mouth watering pieces of sirloin steak cooked to perfection.


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.

Warming Indian Spiced Stew With Flavorful Bison Meat

Warming Indian Spiced Stew With Flavorful Bison Meat

This simple stew recipe is perfect for when that Indian food craving hits, but you don’t want to make anything complicated. Garam masala is the perfect blend of spices to create that mouth watering, complex flavor. Coconut milk adds an exotic touch, but if you don’t have a can on hand (and I would definitely recommend using the canned kind instead of the kind in a carton) you can just use half and half or milk. Our bison stew meat is a staple in my kitchen because it’s so versatile and easy to cook with. It becomes falling-apart-tender and adds delicious flavor to any stew or curry.

Winter Holiday Bison Tenderloin Roast With Red Wine Sauce

Winter Holiday Bison Tenderloin Roast With Red Wine Sauce

A whole roasted bison tenderloin is one of the most delicious things you could possibly serve for the holidays. This larger cut of meat is what becomes filet mignon when sliced into steaks. We recommend searing the tenderloin before roasting for the best flavor. The red wine sauce is so delicious and really adds to the indulgent, festive feel of a tenderloin roast. Make this for Thanksgiving, Christmas or any other time you want to make something special for your loved ones.

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.

Winter Holiday Bison Tenderloin Roast With Red Wine Sauce - Beck & Bulow

Ingredients:


For the tenderloin:



  • 1 bison tenderloin
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons bison tallow
  • ¼ cup beef broth

For the sauce:



  • 1 stick of butter, softened and divided
  • ¾ cup minced shallots
  • 1 ¼ cups dry red wine
  • 3 cups bison bone broth
  • 6 sprigs of fresh thyme
  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
  • 2 tablespoons flour

Also Read: Recipe: Spicy Mexican Meatballs With Bison Primal Blend


Instructions:



  1. Let the thawed bison tenderloin sit out at room temperature for one hour before cooking. Meanwhile, make the red wine sauce. Melt five tablespoons of butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat. Add the minced shallots to the pan and cook, stirring occasionally until tender and fragrant. Add the red wine, bison bone broth, thyme, salt, pepper and coconut sugar to the pan. Increase the heat and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and cook for approximately 30 minutes.
  2. While the liquid is simmering, add what’s left of the stick of butter (3 tablespoons) to a small bowl. Add the flour and mix thoroughly until smooth.
  3. When the liquid mixture has reduced by about half, turn the heat down to low. Take out the sprigs of thyme. Use a whisk to add about a teaspoon at a time of the flour and butter mixture to the pan. Simmer the sauce for a few minutes - it should thicken noticeably.
  4. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  5. Prepare the oven for the tenderloin. Move a rack to the center and preheat to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Lightly grease a roasting pan.
  6. Season the tenderloin on all sides with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  7. Heat the bison tallow in a large cast iron skillet over medium high heat until it’s just about to start smoking. Sear the tenderloin all over, except for one side which will face downward for baking.
  8. Move the tenderloin to the prepared roasting pan. Roast in the oven for 10-12 minutes. Check for doneness with a meat thermometer. We recommend roasting rare to medium rare for the best flavor and texture. Remember that bison cooks more quickly than beef.
  9. Remove the tenderloin from the oven and place it on a cutting board or serving platter. Tent with foil and rest for approximately 10 minutes.
  10. Move the roasting pan to the stove, pouring out any excess fat. Add in the bison bone broth and cook, using a wooden spoon to scrape up any flavorful browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Pour into the saucepan with the red wine sauce and stir to combine. Place the saucepan on the stove and bring to a simmer.
  11. Serve the sliced tenderloin with red wine sauce poured over top, with the rest on the table to add as desired.

Bison Osso Buco With Wild Boar Bacon Parmesan Crust

Bison Osso Buco With Wild Boar Bacon Parmesan Crust

My life really changed when I started eating quality meat. My health and general wellbeing has drastically improved, and the things that I create in my kitchen have increased exponentially in deliciousness. To be honest, I didn’t really start to explore the world of cooking until I started purchasing meat that I felt really excited about having in my freezer, just waiting to be prepared and enjoyed. Before this, I was vegan and I don’t think I even knew what osso buco was. Now it’s one of my favorite cuts - that slow cooked, fall-off-the-bone meat, that luscious bone marrow. There’s lots of different ways to prepare osso buco, a classic Italian dish. This version features a Japanese panko breadcrumb crust with wild boar bacon bits and Parmesan cheese.

Wild Boar Bacon From The Forests Of The Southwest


If you’ve never tried our wild boar bacon before, get ready to be obsessed. Bacon is already known for being one of the most delicious foods in existence. Our wild boars roam the forests of the Southwest, foraging their natural preferred diet of roots, nuts, berries and tubers. This gives our wild boar meat a nutty, complex flavor profile that has so much depth and dimension compared to conventional pork bacon. It’s also slightly less greasy than conventional bacon and contains more vitamins and minerals.

Bison Osso Buco With Wild Boar Bacon Parmesan Crust - Beck & Bulow

Instructions:



  1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit. Season the bison osso buco generously all over with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. Heat the bison tallow in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Cook, without overcrowding, until they are seared golden-brown on all sides. Set aside.
  3. Reduce the heat to medium and add in about ⅔ of the chopped wild boar bacon. Cook, stirring frequently, just until the fat starts to render - do not cook to crisp at this point.
  4. Add the quartered onion, cloves of garlic, bay leaves, rosemary and thyme to the Dutch oven. Stir to combine. Add the wine to the pot and bring to a simmer. Cook until the liquid reduces by about half.
  5. Add the can of tomatoes into the pot, crushing them with a wooden spoon or your fingers. Pour in the bison bone broth. Then, add the osso buco back into the pot. Add water as necessary to cover with liquid. Season generously with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. When the pot comes to a simmer, put on the lid and place in the preheated oven.
  6. Cook for approximately 1 ½ - 2 hours. Check occasionally and add more water if necessary to keep the meat completely submerged. The meat should be meltingly tender when finished cooking.
  7. Remove the osso buco from the oven and let it cool for approximately 10 minutes in the pot. Then transfer the meat to a separate surface and tent with aluminum foil.
  8. Pour the liquid from the pot through a strainer into a saucepan on the stove. Bring to a simmer and cook for approximately 30 minutes until the liquid reduces significantly. Season to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  9. While the liquid is cooking, add the rest of the chopped wild boar bacon to a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Cook until crispy. Place the cooked bacon on a paper towel lined plate.
  10. Heat the avocado oil in the skillet. When it’s hot, add in the breadcrumbs. Season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally until crispy and golden. Add in the grated Parmesan and crispy wild boar bacon bits. Stir to combine. Transfer to a bowl and set aside.
  11. Place the osso buco in a serving dish or platter. Add some of the reduced braising liquid over the top, followed by the breadcrumb mixture.
