Bison Burgers

Still trying to eat healthy and get my cholesterol down and I've been craving a hamburger. So, I picked up a pack of Bison meat which I've past many times in the store but never purchased. Made 3 patties out of 1lb of meat so the burgers were good size. Seasoned with s&p and grilled to 150. Topped the burger with roasted red pepper, lettuce, tomato, grilled red onion and pickles. I was very very pleasantly surprised at how moist and flavorful the meat was. I was expecting it to be bland and on the dry side, but absolutely not! For something as healthy as this is, it's very good, worth trying and I'll be getting more for sure.

My wife on the other hand wouldn't try it, so she got 2 small chuck eyes that I seasoned with S&P. Added to the grill was baked potatoes, carrots, red bell pepper, red onion and corn which was the worst we've bought this year, NO flavor



I also needed to throw this picture in to show that parents do influence their children......we had baked cod, zuchini and rice the other night for dinner. Most of which my 7 year old daughter prepared by herself (with guidance of course). So we sit down to eat and she jumps up and gets the camera and said "I need to take a picture of this daddy"!

Food looks great as always and your grill is always packed - how many do you feed everyday

Looks great as usual Larry! Never had Bison before. Did it taste like a burger?

Yes and No. Had I not known what it was, I probably would have thought it was regular burger. But, since I knew what it was, it did have a minute distinctive taste of it's own in a good way.

The texture when forming the patties scared me. It reminded me of ground turkey, very wet and fragile, but it held together very nicely when cooking!

I wouldnt add a thing to it. Cooked a million of em. They had a big supermarket up in Wilbarger County which had an entire buffalo section. It was a little pricey except for the hamburger meat. Make you chunks at ground up bovines. Used to cook em up and sell em at the combo arcade pool hall place we run.

Your supper looks good. Had Bison a couple of times and really wasn't that bad.

I've heard good things about bison, and you've inspired me to go ahead and try it!

Main thing with Buffler is dont over cook it. Few mins per side is plenty. If you get it overdone it turns into a ceegar store wooden injun. Much shorter cook time than beef.

Ive read to cook it on low, or is that just for the steaks?

Ive had buff burgers here. They are great. I cooked em like a regular hamburger anyways. Looks killer.
