Our Bison Filet Mignon, cut from the tenderloin, is a lean, tender, and consistently delicious cut of meat. Considered one of the most prized cuts from the bison, these steaks boast a buttery texture and a rich, subtle beefy flavor that is both unique and exquisite.

Cooking Tips:

  • Temperature: Cook Bison Filet Mignon to medium-rare (130°F to 135°F) or medium (135°F to 145°F) for the best experience. Avoid overcooking to maintain tenderness and juiciness.
  • Preparation: Allow the steaks to come to room temperature before cooking. Season generously with salt, pepper, and your favorite herbs such as rosemary or thyme.
  • Pan-Searing: Sear the steaks in a skillet over medium-high heat, then finish cooking over medium heat for the desired doneness.
  • Grilling: Sear the Bison Filet Mignon on the grill, then move to a cooler part to finish cooking. Allow the steaks to rest before serving to retain juices.
  • Oven-Finishing: Sear the filet mignon in a skillet, then transfer to a preheated oven to finish cooking.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Classic Pairing: Serve Bison Filet Mignon with a red wine reduction, garlic mashed potatoes, and roasted asparagus for a traditional and luxurious dinner.
  • Surf and Turf: Pair the filet with lobster tail or grilled shrimp, accompanied by a lemon-butter sauce and a side of wild rice pilaf.
  • Salad: Create a sophisticated salad by slicing the filet over mixed greens with cherry tomatoes, blue cheese crumbles, candied pecans, and balsamic vinaigrette.
  • Sandwich: Use leftover filet mignon to make a gourmet sandwich with crusty bread, caramelized onions, arugula, and horseradish spread.
  • Sauces: Complement Bison Filet Mignon with sauces like béarnaise, chimichurri, or garlic herb butter for enhanced flavor.

Additional Notes: Bison Filet Mignon, a lean and tender cut, requires careful cooking to maintain its tenderness and flavor. Its lack of marbling offers a healthier alternative to traditional beef while delivering a premium and satisfying dining experience.

What are the health benefits of bison?

  1. Lean Protein Content:
    Bison meat is known for being leaner than beef, containing lower levels of fat and calories. It is an excellent source of high-quality protein, which is essential for building and repairing tissues, supporting immune function, and maintaining muscle mass.
  2. Nutrient Rich:
    Bison meat is rich in essential nutrients such as iron, zinc, phosphorus, and B vitamins (including B12 and niacin). These nutrients play crucial roles in various bodily functions, including energy metabolism, immune system support, and red blood cell formation.
  3. Lower Fat Content:
    Bison meat typically has lower fat content, particularly saturated fat, compared to traditional beef. Diets high in saturated fat have been associated with an increased risk of cardiovascular diseases. Choosing leaner meats like bison may contribute to a heart-healthy diet.
  4. Omega-3 Fatty Acids:
    Bison meat contains a higher proportion of omega-3 fatty acids compared to some other meats. Omega-3 fatty acids are known for their potential cardiovascular benefits, including reducing inflammation and improving heart health.

A bison's lifestyle, consuming a natural grass diet, plays into bison meat being a more sustainable red meat option compared to beef.

How do I cook bison?

Take the bison steak out of the refrigerator at least 30-60 minutes before cooking to allow it to come to room temperature. This helps the steak cook more evenly. For steaks, cooking your elk to an internal temperature of 130-135 degrees with a resting time of 5 minutes will ensure a juicy, tender medium-rare. Just don't overcook it, or you'll have f*cked it up!

What does bison taste like?

Bison has a slight hint of sweetness often found in grass-fed animals. Bison meat is also high in iron, which gives it a distinctive earthy flavor. The nice thing about bison meat is that the flavor is very comparable to beef and not gamey at all. It is rich enough to be paired with other strong flavors, but will not overpower your dish.
