Bison Heart (1 lb)
Sustainably Raised Free Range & Grass fed bison
Physical Description: The bison heart is an impressive and nutrient-rich organ, weighing approximately 1 pound per package. Currently, the bison heart is pre-sliced for your convenience.
Cooking: The bison heart is a versatile ingredient that can be cooked in a variety of ways. For a steak-like experience, soak the heart in a salt brine overnight and cook to your desired doneness. Alternatively, cut the heart into chunks and use it in pasta or stew recipes. Despite being an organ, the texture and taste are similar to regular muscle meat.
Nutrition Information: The bison heart is a nutrient powerhouse, containing high levels of folate, iron, selenium, and zinc. It also has twice the amount of collagen as regular meat and is the number one food source of copper. Additionally, it provides an abundance of B-complex vitamins including B2, B6, and B12 which are essential for maintaining healthy blood pressure and benefiting brain health. These nutrients have also been shown to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s, dementia, anxiety, and depression. The bison heart is particularly rich in CoQ10, an antioxidant that promotes heart health, slows down aging, and improves energy levels.
Farming Practices: At Beck & Bulow, we take pride in sourcing our bison from ranchers who raise their herds on open ranges in the United States, as well as from our own ranch here in New Mexico. We place a strong emphasis on sourcing bison that is grass-fed, free-range, and never administered antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormones. Our bison are raised in an environment that mimics their natural habitat, allowing them to roam and graze freely on the open plains. This contributes to their excellent health and superior quality of meat. We take great care in sourcing bison from ethical and sustainable sources that prioritize the welfare of the animals and the environment. Each piece of high quality meat is cut and trimmed by hand with exceptional precision. Additionally, we work directly with farmers and ranchers to ensure that our bison meet the highest standards of quality and flavor all of which contribute to our reputation as one of the best places to buy meat online.
